Tipster spills beans on names of upcoming devices
An anonymous tipster has leaked the names of several forthcoming devices on the Sprint network. The Engadget source revealed that Samsung's multi-million selling Galaxy S II will be called the Epic 4G Touch. The rumored HTC handset codenamed Kingdom will be known as the EVO Design 4G. Meanwhile, a new Motorola handset without the 4G treatment will arrive badged as the Admiral.
The Samsung Epic 4G will be a variant of the global Galaxy S II model with a faster HSDPA+ radio and slightly altered, rounder design. It will retain the 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor of the overseas model, as well as the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display.
The HTC EVO Design 4G is rumored to run either a 1.2GHz or 1.4GHz single-core second-generation Snapdragon processor, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and HTC's latest UI skin, Sense 3.0.
No details have emerged with regard to the Motorola Admiral.
