Cellebrite Machine shows Samsung Epic 4G 2 coming

Cellebrite Machine shows Samsung Epic 4G 2 coming
You might remember the Cellebrite machine as being the device used by carriers to move over information (like your contacts list) from one handset to another. According to a source for ACS Syndicate, Sprint's version of the machine displayed the Samsung SPH-D705, aka the Samsung Epic 4G 2. This would be the sequel to Sprint's first-gen Samsung Epic 4G and has nothing to do with the Samsung Epic 4G Touch. The latter, of course, is Sprint's version of the Samsung Galaxy S II.

Back in August, Pocketnow had a leaked image of the Samsung Epic 4G 2 and said that the model was due to be released in the third quarter of last year. Expectations were for a minor refresh from the original unit; the phone was expected to have a 4 inch display and a single-core 1.2GHz processor. The camera was to receive a bump to 8MP from the 5MP on the original device.

Obviously, the Samsung Epic 4G 2 did not come out in the third quarter and the picture of the phone from last summer obtained by Pocketnow might not look anything like the handset now. With a single-core processor under the hood back in June, we might see some upgrade to the phone's innards as well.
