Samsung Epic 2, "full touch 4G" device both part of leaked Sprint Q3 roadmapAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Sprint today launched both the HTC EVO 3D and HTC EVO View 4G, but if neither of those devices tickles your fancy for whatever reason, a new leak has revealed that Sprint's got several other tempting products coming soon. The folks at This is my next have been tipped off on all of the details on Sprint's third quarter (July-September) roadmap and, although there aren't any specific launch dates included, there are juicy details about some upcoming handsets to be found. Here's what we can reportedly expect from Sprint over the next few months:
- Samsung Epic 2: 4-inch display, single-core 1.2GHz Hummingbird processor (likely the same as the Infuse 4G), 8-megapixel camera, and a physical QWERTY keyboard.
- Samsung "full touch 4G" device: Not much is known about this product, but it's very possible that it's the Samsung Galaxy Within, aka Sprint's Galaxy S II.
- BlackBerry Bold Touch: This 'Berry has appeared once before in a leaked Sprint inventory sheet. Last we heard, it was slated to arrive on August 21st. Said to be capable of GSM roaming.
- BlackBerry Monaco: Also appeared on a Sprint inventory sheet, also slated to land on August 21st. Could be arriving under the name "BlackBerry Torch 9850." Also said to be capable of GSM roaming.
- New push-to-talk BlackBerry: Details are light on this device, but it's about time Sprint replaced the aging 8350i.
So there you have it. There's nothing terribly mindblowing to be found, but it's good to hear that more high-end smartphones are on track to hit Sprint in the coming months. The Epic 2 sounds a tad underwhelming, but it'll still be nice to see another QWERTY-packin' Android make its way to Sprint. Rumors have claimed that the iPhone 4S may also be coming to Sprint in September, but it's nowhere to be found on this roadmap. Whether that's because Apple is super secretive or because the rumor isn't true remains to be seen, but it could probably go either way. So what do you all think of Sprint's Q3 roadmap? Is there a particular device you're looking forward to or are you disappointed with the upcoming stable of products?
