Sprint holding a Samsung Galaxy S III launch event June 12 in Boston

This was revealed by Samsung itself today, but now the carriers themselves are starting to send invitations for their special launch event dates, and the first in line is Sprint, which has pegged Tuesday, June 12 for the party, in the fine city of Boston.
Sprint's memo reads: "Join us at an exclusive Samsung event. Come experience the smartphone redefined. There will be hands-on demonstrations, world-class technologists, games, prizes, and refreshments during this two-hour cocktail reception."
Our scales are tipped as much by the possible Samsung Galaxy S III launch as they are by the words "cocktail reception", and all the mystery left now is at what price will the handset arrive on Sprint.
- Display 4.8" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.9 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus, Dual-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2100 mAh(9.20h talk time)

Sprint's "Epic" line has always brought something to differentiate itself from other Galaxy S'. The OG Epic had a keyboard, and the Epic Touch had a larger screen. Eith every carrier expected to use the same variant, I'm not sure Sprint will use the Epic name.

According to the Wall Street Journal - Samsung has made agreements w/ all the carriers to keep the name Samsung Galaxy SIII. Quoted from the article "In interviews previewing the announcement, Samsung executives emphasized that the Galaxy S III will be the company's first top-of-the-line phone to use the same name at all four national wireless carriers in the U.S."
