Leaked image reveals the names of three devices bound for Sprint
Today, we came across a leak revealing the alleged names of three devices, all of which are said to be destined for Sprint. Starting with the most interesting among the bunch, the Samsung Epic 4G Touch is what Sprint's version of the almost iconic Galaxy S II smartphone will be known like, according to the rumor. That, of course, lines up well with other insider tips that we've stumbled upon, so the leak that we are dealing with today might be onto something after all.
The second smartphone that we are getting familiar with today is known as the HTC EVO Design 4G, which is the name suggested for the upcoming HTC Kingdom. Now, we are witnessing somewhat of a paradox forming here as the Kingdom might also hit the market as the HTC Hero 4G, yet this monicker has not been officially confirmed either. What is said about the HTC Kingdom is that it will pack a 4-inch qHD display, 1.2GHz Qualcomm chipset, 5-megapixel camera and, of course, a WiMAX radio.
the Motorola Admiral is rumored to be another Sprint-bound cellphone, and by the lack of the 4G designation in its name we are assuming that it will not be sitting anywhere near the carrier's top-tier smartphones. Sadly, the leak remains silent and does not reveal any further details about the device.
Bear in mind that all there is to back up the alleged names of these three devices is the black and white image you see here, so it would probably be wise if you file this under “rumors” for now. Chances are, however, that if the leak is on the right track, we will be hearing more news about these phones pretty soon.

I wonder if the Sammy will be the first edition of the GSII available with a faster than 3G radio? Although it is unfortunate how spotty the WiMax coverage is in the SF Bay Area. Literally, you can have good coverage in one area and go a 1/4 mile in another direction and there is no coverage. And this is happening outdoors....

@rican - I am wondering whether HTC will be upgrading the Shift as well. Although with the larger screen size, in landscape mode, the touch keyboard of the 3D I recently got is pretty good....

yea ive played with it at my job and i like it too but alot of people come in wanting physical keyboards and all there is on the lineup (android wise) is the outdated epic and the shift. What im trying to figure out is if htc will just come out with evo lineups from now on or are they gonna be like samsung and make high ends like the galaxy series and mid range like the transform and moments.
