Sprint unveils Samsung Epic 4G

Are you ready for the first Android phone with a 4 inch Super AMOLED display, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and 4G support? Meet the Samsung Epic 4G, which is Sprint’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S line.

The Samsung Epic 4G will join the HTC EVO 4G as Sprint’s second phone to support their 4G WiMAX network. Both phones have similar features, but many would say the Epic ranks above the EVO with its QWERTY keyboard, faster processor, faster graphics processor, and Super AMOLED display.

Just like the EVO, the Epic will ship with Android 2.1 and an update to Android 2.2 is expected in the near future.

No price point or release date have been announced, but we would expect the Epic to sell for around $199 with 2yr contract and launch late this summer. Sprint customers can also expect to pay the mandatory $10 Premium Data add-on since this devices supports 4G and includes a front-facing camera.

Entertainment fans will enjoy the new Samsung Media Hub, which will feature a video store with movies and TV shows available for purchase or rental, and video content set up for an HD-like entertainment experience on a handset screen. Other software additions include all the exclusive Sprint Android apps, the Swype virtual keyboard, and the popular racing game Asphalt 5.

Expect additional details at Samsung’s media event this week. If you want to learn more about the Samsung Epic 4G you can pre-register to learn more about Samsung Epic 4G at www.sprint.com/epic4g.

Samsung Epic 4G, America’s First 4G-Capable Phone with Slide-out QWERTY Keyboard and Brilliant Super AMOLED Touchscreen, Coming to Sprint
Samsung Epic 4G brings a living room entertainment experience to a mobile phone, offering HD-like video through the first video store with movies and TV shows, optimized for a 4G handset for rental or purchase

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — June 28, 2010 — Sprint (NYSE: S) and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), the No. 1 mobile phone provider in the U.S.1, today introduced the second 4G-capable handset from Sprint, Samsung Epicâ„¢ 4G, a Galaxy Sâ„¢ smartphone and Samsung Mobile’s first 4G Androidâ„¢-powered device.

“Sprint takes another leap forward today, announcing its second 4G-capable smartphone,” said Steve Elfman, president, Network Operations and Wholesale. “Samsung Epic 4G joins a portfolio of powerful devices offering an unprecedented simplicity and value to our customers as the only national carrier with a 4G network and devices and applications that can leverage the increased data speeds to provide a high-def entertainment and business experience in the palm of your hand.”

“Samsung Epic 4G is a powerful member of our Galaxy S smartphone portfolio which offers premium screen, speed and content features,” said Omar Khan, chief strategy officer for Samsung Mobile. “The Epic 4G ups the ante with a front-facing camera for video conferencing, a full QWERTY keyboard and lightning-fast 4G speeds.”

Samsung Epic 4G is part of a new breed of Samsung smartphones offering their very best in screen, speed and content quality for a premium user experience, and offers a fully integrated multimedia, messaging and social networking experience. It also features an exceptionally thin smartphone design with a slide out, full QWERTY keyboard and 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display.

The brilliant Super AMOLED touchscreen display offers:
The best representation of color on a mobile phone that matches original content, more than 100 times the contrast quality of other leading displays
Faster response time that reduces “ghosting” images
Wide viewing angles to prevent blurring or distortion
Thinner design to offer more accurate and responsiveness to touch

Entertainment at Its Best
In the coming months, Samsung Epic 4G will have access to the Samsung Media Hub, making it the first and only 4G handset to feature a video store with movies and TV available for purchase or rental, and video content set up for an HD-like entertainment experience on a handset screen. With 4G from Sprint, users will be able to get turbo-charged downloads of a full library of video and literary content powered by some of the biggest names in entertainment.

Samsung Epic 4G also features Samsung’s exclusive AllShare service to wirelessly share stored music, pictures and HD video to other DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) certifiedâ„¢ home electronics, including HDTVs, monitors, digital cameras, printers and more. Through AllShare, users will be able to capture moments with the phone’s camera and camcorder, and wirelessly show them to friends or family on their DLNA certified HDTV or download music from a PC to Samsung Epic 4G and take on the road.

Amazing Features
Powered by the Android 2.1 platform, Samsung Epic 4G also supports a series of advanced touch screen gestures including multi-touch pinch, long tap and zoom and vertical and horizontal swiping.

Samsung Epic 4G is the only 4G smartphone to offer three fast and easy ways to enter text onto the device — a slide-out full QWERTY keyboard, virtual keyboard and Swype technology, which allows users to input text faster and more intuitively with one continuous finger motion across the virtual keyboard.

The smartphone is designed for an optimal gaming experience with a six-axis sensor that fine tunes its accelerometer’s ability to interpret simple movements of the device, so when the phone tilts up and down or left and right, the game can immediately respond in the same directions. A demo of Asphalt 5, a popular racing game, is preloaded exclusively on Samsung Epic 4G allowing users to take full advantage of these advanced gaming capabilities.

It also features:
Samsung 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird Application Processor supports amazing 3-D graphics, faster upload and download times and the full richness of HD-like multimedia content.
Dual camera: 5 MP camera/camcorder with autofocus, Power LED flash and 3x digital zoom for HD video3 (720p) video recording and front facing VGA camera for video chat and more
Visual Voicemail
Mobile Hotspot capability supporting up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices to share the 4G experience simultaneously
Android Marketâ„¢ for access to more than 50,000 useful applications, widgets and games available for download to customize the experience
Wi-Fi® b/g/n
1500 mAh battery

Staying Connected with Social Networking

Additionally, calendar information from portal calendars, such as Google Calendar and social networking services are displayed together in one calendar with two-way synchronization.

As work on finalizing the software is underway, Sprint expects to launch Android 2.2 for Samsung Epic 4G in the near future. With the Android 2.2 upgrade, customers can expect improvements to include the following benefits among others: updates to User Interface, improved EAS Support, improved Browser Performance including Flash 10x Support, voice Dialing Over Bluetooth and application Storage on External Memory.

A Sprint 4G developer guide is available today from the Sprint ADP Web site at http://developer.sprint.com. The Sprint 4G developer guide provides details on developing for an Android 2.1 handset and how to take advantage of the Samsung Epic 4G’s unique hardware and software capabilities and the Sprint 4G network. The Sprint Application Developer Program has been providing tools for third-party developers since Sprint first launched the Wireless Web on its phones in 2001.

Sprint will announce pricing and availability in the coming months; meanwhile customers can pre-register for more information about Samsung Epic 4G at www.sprint.com/epic4g.

Blazing trails with Sprint 4G
Sprint 4G offers a faster wireless experience than any other U.S. national wireless carrier, and Sprint is the only national carrier offering wireless 4G service today in 36 markets. Sprint 4G delivers download speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G, giving Samsung Epic 4G the fastest data speeds of any U.S. wireless device available today.2

As the first national wireless carrier to test, launch and market 4G technology, Sprint made history by launching 4G in Baltimore in September 2008.

Sprint currently offers 4G service in 36 markets: Georgia — Atlanta, Milledgeville; Hawaii — Honolulu, Maui; Idaho — Boise; Illinois — Chicago; Maryland — Baltimore; Missouri — Kansas City, St. Louis; Nevada — Las Vegas; North Carolina — Charlotte, Greensboro, (along with High Point and Winston-Salem), Raleigh (along with Cary, Chapel Hill and Durham); Oregon — Portland, Salem; Pennsylvania — Harrisburg, Lancaster, Philadelphia, Reading, York; Texas — Abilene, Amarillo, Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, Killeen/Temple, Lubbock, Midland/Odessa, San Antonio, Waco, Wichita Falls; Utah — Salt Lake City; Virginia — Richmond; Washington — Bellingham, Seattle.

In 2010, Sprint expects to launch 4G service in multiple markets, including but not limited to, Boston, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York City, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

More Satisfied Than Ever
Powerful 4G smartphones like Samsung Epic 4G is one of many reasons Sprint is the most improved company in customer satisfaction, across all industries, over the last two years, according to results from the 2010 American Customer Satisfaction Index.

Sprint’s improvement was driven in part by substantial gains in two aspects of the survey. In the area of customers’ perceptions of value, Sprint now leads both AT&T and Verizon. The company also achieved an impressive improvement in the area of customer loyalty. With these gains, the company’s overall ACSI score jumped 14 points over the last two years. In the last six years of the ACSI survey, no other company has improved its satisfaction score by that many points in a two-year period.

The improvements in the ACSI survey come as Sprint has seen nine consecutive quarters of improved customer satisfaction and first call resolution. The company’s improvements have also been recognized by other independent third-parties, including Sprint winning the #1 spot for both overall satisfaction for wireless voice service providers and wireless data service providers in a Yankee Group and Mobile Enterprise magazine survey of large business decision makers. Sprint also ranked high in small and medium business customer satisfaction. Also noteworthy was Sprint’s two-year Reputation Pulseâ„¢ score increase in Reputation Institute’s 2010 U.S. Most Reputable Companies Study (published annually in Forbes). Sprint’s 18.22 percent gain puts its improvement in the top 10 percent of the 150 largest U.S. companies, ahead of both AT&T and Verizon.

        They only do annual upgrades for the main account holder if you’re on a simply everything data plan or higher. So that is true as long as you are either on an individual plan or if you are the one who gets the bill.

      I adored my TI Calculator.
      This looks difficult to type on though, much like the Droid 1. Will have to try it in person, even if I can’t switch to Sprint, I’ll go check it out in-store.

      • http://Website Corvette

        I agree. I’ll have to try it out first but doesn’t look like the most friendly keyboard. And I wasn’t hating on Texas Instruments either. My TI-83 was my best friend for many years.

    Come ON!!! Why would *anyone* release a keyboard for a phone in 2010 with the @ sign on a function key?!

    Good grief — they got so much right — and then the put in a damned emoticon button instead of an @ sign.

    I wish someone would start a web site that certifies phones for “non-stupid design” and offers free specs of “what people really want”, and that said website included the G1 keyboard with the minor addition of arrow keys. Really, really, really tired of keyboards being such a simple-but-often-screwed-up thing.

    Bad news.

    After having a manager of our local sprint store, also being the main rep for our entire area, got off a long call with Sprint Exec. service line, we found out the Epic 4G will not be released until Black Friday.

    The last Friday before Thanks giving.
    Kind of a huge bummer, stuck with the EVO 4 until then.

    The 30FPS cap is the ONLY reason im willing to return it.
    So no hate.

    Why does AT&T’s device (or that by US Cellular) not have a front-facing camera?

    Arg!

  • http://Website watbetch

    All of you need to get a grip.

    T-Mobile will be launching a HSPA+ dual core superfone soon enough IF THE GALAXY S isn’t enough for you.. stop crying about a FFC and flash, it’s not going to make the phone any faster or load your apps up faster. Keyboards are a completely subjective thing, I don’t need one myself.

    The Vibrant is still a killer phone. T-Mobile customers are drama queens. T-Mobile will still have nearly double the HSPA+ coverage (over spotty 4G) without any extra fees.

    • http://www.google.com/profiles/anakin78z anakin78z

      Sorry, but I don’t agree. Without the front facing camera and flash, this is really just an ok phone, and nothing great. It’s still got the screen going for it, but then you also have to consider Samsungs horrible history with Android, and I’m not sure the screen is worth the future frustration. If it DID however have the front facing camera and flash, then at least hardware wise I would consider it future proof. As is, it feels like you’re getting technology which was really cool 6 months ago, but will feel dated 6 months from now. Their demo unit was pretty much on the technology curve. This device is below it. This is not a killer phone.

      • http://Website watbetch

        The iPhone 4 would be just OK without the front facing camera? LOLPLZ lets FACE it, this feature is WORTHLESS. It doesn’t make it an OK phone, you people are sickening. I guess it’s akin to the myTouch Slide and LG Ally because it doesn’t have a front facing camera? The Hummingbird is suddenly garbage because it doesn’t have a front facing camera? The SuperAMOLED screen is suddenly garbage because it doesn’t have a front facing camera? The 5MP camera with 720P recording is suddenly garbage because it doesn’t come with a front facing camera on the front? The 16GB of builtin memory is suddenly worthless because it doesn’t have a FRONT FACING CAMERA?

        Seriously, stfu

        • http://www.google.com/profiles/anakin78z anakin78z

          Oh please, you’re listing old specs. Sure, the hummingbird is fine, but 720p video on these devices is indeed crap (just watch the videos.), 16gb built in memory is nothing to get excited about since that’s been available in other phones for years, and a 5mp camera without flash is sub standard these days. The front facing camera presents a new way to use these devices, and that’s what’s missing, and why it’s missing the curve. You’re still thinking about the old and not even the current. Yes, this is a great device for 6 months ago. Everyone was giving the Xperia X10 shit for coming out 6 months late, and if you look at it’s specs, they’re still fantastic. But nobody gives a crap about it anymore because it’s running an old version of Android and will never support multi-touch. The Galaxy S, as is, is in the same boat. Runs an old version of Android and doesn’t have the hardware to make it future proof for even 6 months. Sure, it’ll run fine, but you won’t be able to use it in the ways that will soon become standard. And don’t even tell me it’ll be updated to Froyo soon. I’ll believe that when I see it.

          The iPhone 4 IS just ok. Sure, it’s faster, and has some make believe version of multitasking, but it’s just keeping with the times. The things that make it interesting are the front facing camera and the gyroscope. They allow you to use the device in new ways.

          This is just a rehash of a superphone from 6 months ago. Today, it’s not enough.

      • http://Website str8_krazy

        It does have a front facing camera and flash. This is from the spec sheet on the sprint site:

        Dual camera: 5 MP camera/camcorder with autofocus, Power LED flash and 3x digital zoom for HD video (720p) recording for capture and playback on an HD television and front facing VGA camera for video chat and more

    Battery life! The battery life on this device is going to be awful. Absolute garbage. The Samsung Moment needs to be charged twice a day as it is, and the HTC Evo 4G the same. Now Samsung is trying to pull off an Evo-style phone with their same inefficient Samsung-made hardware, and the battery is the same size as in the Samsung Moment? You’re going to have to charge this 3 times a day! That’s not a mobile phone, it’s a really small laptop you can’t leave the house with.

    Reviews and even previews need to start talking about battery life, because this is really getting ridiculous. If it’s not useful as a phone, don’t help the company that makes it with free marketing for their crap devices.

      Yah that battery life really does suck. Or maybe its just you?

    • http://Website funtastic

      Chris, there is plenty of information regarding the battery life of the Epic 4G. I will quote my fav review guys for you:

      “One of the big selling points of the Epic will be the battery life. We were able to achieve a full day’s use and have plenty left over when we plugged in before bed. For some this alone will be worth the $50 over the EVO 4G, which often needs to be charged mid-day.”
