Those looking forward to the Samsung Epic 4G will probably be pleased to hear that the phone’s full spec sheet has finally been leaked. We’ve known about the basics like the 4 inch Super AMOLED display, five row QWERTY keyboard, 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor, LED flash and 720p HD video recording for quite some time. The leaked specs help fill in the gaps, revealing 1GB of ROM, 512 MB of RAM, 1500 mAh battery, six-axis motion sensor, and a few other details.
Since the phone’s announcement, we have been wondering what the size difference would be between the Epic 4G and the other Galaxy S phones. The Epic 4G measures in at 124.8 x 64.6 x 14.2 which isn’t too much larger than the original Galaxy S which measures 122.4 x 64.2 x 9.9 mm. Overall, the only noticeable size increase is the extra 4.3mm added to the phone’s thickness to accommodate the QWERTY keyboard.
Like the other Galaxy S handsets in the U.S. market, the Epic 4G will be running on Android 2.1 with Touch Wiz 3.0 and will feature the typicall Google services and applications. What really makes the Epic stand out though is the full QWERTY and the retention of the front facing VGA camera.
Sprint is trying to differentiate their Android phones from the rest of the crowd and they are the only carrier to offer Android phones with front-facing cameras. How many of you would actually be willing to switch over to Sprint’s 4G network and pay the premium $10 fee in order to get your hands on the Samsung Epic 4G?
