But, Samsung has unexpectedly announced the Sprint variant – Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch (So big! Say it SGSIIE4T) through its Mobile Product Training website. It looks like It looks like the manufacturer has done a little tweaking of the GSII and we can take the report of upgrades to the original Samsung Galaxy S II handset. The screen size 4.32” is growing by 0.2" to 4.52". Yes, the Sprint’s variant is sporting a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. In fact, all the three variants of the Galaxy S II for the U.S. carriers have got 4.5-inch screen. Earlier, we’ve seen the leaked press shot of the Sprint branded Samsung Epic 4G Touch handset.

Samsung has also confirmed the 4G WiMAX capability for the Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch handset. However, this handset has got an "ultra-thin" design, and an Advanced Android Experience. We really don’t have any idea about the “Adv. Android Experience”. The camera and OS specs should remain the same – 8MP camera and Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.
Samsung has made us wait once again to get the information on official pricing and release date of the Sprint branded Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch handset. We are sure that we will get these details at tonight’s event.
