Sprint compares new Samsung Epic 4G to EVO 4G

Sprint has yet to announce a launch date for the Samsung Epic 4G, but the handset is widely believed to be released later this month (rumored around August 21st). A promo site recently went live and now Sprint has uploaded a quick demo video of the Epic to their YouTube channel.

In the brief two minute clip, a Sprint employee highlights the major differences between the Samsung Epic and their first 4G handset, the HTC EVO. Distinguishing features of the Epic include the slide out QWERTY keyboard, Super AMOLED display, and the industry leading graphics processor (PowerVR SGX540).

Even though the Epic might be the faster of the two phones, the EVO still has its own advantages like a larger display, higher megapixel camera, HDMI out, and the recent Android 2.2 software update.

No pricing information has been provided yet, but we fully expect the Epic 4G will debut at $199 with 2-year contract.
