Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch may be making its way to Boost MobileAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Looks like another Sprint handset may be making the jump from the Now Network to Boost Mobile. A user agent profile for a device referred to as the "SPH-D710BST" has been discovered on Sprint's website, and since the regular Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch features the model number SPH-D710, it's thought that the addition of "BST" at the end of this new number could indicate that the Epic 4G Touch is Boost-bound. Included in the user agent profile are some specs that line up with the original EpTouch's, including a 480x800 resolution, 16GB storage and Android 4.0.4.
While this is obviously all still unofficial at this point, an Epic 4G Touch on Boost Mobile would make sense. We've already seen several Sprint devices make their way to Boost after spending some time on the Now Network's shelves, including the Samsung Replenish and HTC EVO Design 4G. There's also the fact that Sprint is now offering the Galaxy S III and is running a promo that'll give away a free EpTouch to anyone that buys one for $99.99. Unfortunately, there's no word yet on when this Boost Mobile Epic 4G Touch might launch or how much it could cost when it does. If you're a Boost customer that's shopping for a new smartphone, though, you may want to stay tuned.
