The Samsung Galaxy S Pro smartphone has been renamed as Epic 4G and has been announced to become available through mobile carrier Sprint. The phone will be equipped with a range of high-end features during its launch, which has not been announced yet.

The 4-inch screen of the Epic 4G will have a Super AMOLED touch screen display. The phone will feature a physical QWERTY keypad that will slide out from beneath the screen. A virtual keyboard as well as Swype will also be available on the phone as alternative means of text input.

A 5 megapixel camera that is capable of recording videos at 720p resolution will be present in the back of the camera along with an LED flash. The phone will also have a front facing VGA camera for making video calls. The functions of the phone will be powered by a 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor.

The operating software for the phone will be a custom version of Android 2.1 that has been modified by Samsung. The version will offer support for DLNA and integrate Samsung’s Social Hub. The phone will also be capable of functioning as a mobile hotspot by offering connectivity for up to 5 other devices in its range.

While the phone can connect to the internet using 4G and 3G networks, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n is also present in it. A 1500 mAh battery will also be a part of the device.

The Epic 4G has been categorized as a Galaxy S smartphone, like AT&T’s Samsung Captivate and T-Mobile’s Samsung Vibrant. The pricing for the Samsung Epic 4G as well as its launch date is yet to be announced by the company.
