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.

The "Epic 2" could be a GS3, but we won't know until it actually comes out. I'm thinking that it might be a variant of the Galaxy S Plus, a Galaxy S with higher clocked processor and higher data speed possibilities.

it's probably going to be Sprint's version of the Captivate Glide.

i work at sprint, and i never seen such a thing on my celebrite, but i can say for a fact that the phone you see pictured and im surprised that phonearena couldnt tell is a Samsung Conquer, look at the physical buttons. Which to my knowledge did come out 3rd quarter of last year like the previous rumor said. it is single core, and does have a 4 inch screen. So there u go

I work at Sprint, and it is on our Cellebrite. Your machine must be out of date and/or a bootleg one. In fact, I brought it up to a couple of my co-workers a few weeks ago when it appeared.

That picture looks like the Conquer, but they're describing the Transform Ultra. Both came out right around the same time, and have been out for awhile.

The fact that you work for Sprint and never heard of it isn't new. Sprint doesn't let anyone know about anything until everyone knows. You can state otherwise, but that would be a lie.

the conquer screen is 3.5 inches not 4

if this is going to have LTE then it might be a little competition for the Droid 4.
