The Sprint variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone is reportedly known as the Samsung Epic Touch 4G. Obviously, the device is the successor to the original Galaxy S (Epic 4G), so Sprint wants to continue the brand name but reveal to potential customers that it doesn’t sport the same slider QWERTY keyboard. In any event, Samsung is hosting a special event on August 29th presumably to introduce the Galaxy S II in the United States. According to a rumor by SprintFeed, Sprint will launch the Epic Touch 4G on September 9th, making it the first American carrier to launch the iconic Galaxy S II. As of now, this is only a rumor so keep that in mind before you plan to take a day off from work on the 9th to be the first to get the Galaxy S II. We should know more after August 29th, when Samsung introduces the phone.
