Samsung gives clue to Epic 4G through online video

Samsung has dropped clues as to the launch of the Epic 4G through a schedule for its demo videos. Sprint's 4G version of the Android phone is slated to get a video presentation on August 20. As both the related AT&T Captivate and T-Mobile Vibrant had their videos posted virtually in sync with the actual launch, the posting implies the Epic 4G may be ready on or near the August 20 timeframe.

Sprint often prefers to make phones available on a Sunday, so the actual ship date may be August 22.

The Epic 4G's delay beyond the other versions hasn't been explained by Samsung or Sprint, but its use of WiMAX and the slide-out QWERTY keyboard make it much different than any other Galaxy S. It primarily shares the Super AMOLED screen, 1GHz processor and five-megapixel camera. [via Android Police]
