Samsung Epic 4G Waits for FCC Approval; Release Date Could Be Soon

July 22, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Sprint’s 4G-enabled variant of the Samsung Galaxy S smartphone, called the Epic 4G, has reportedly reached Federal Communications Commission or the FCC, and is waiting for their approval. Once the phone gets approved by the FCC, it could become available in the market within a few weeks.

One of the outline sketches, that is pictured above, was among the sketches sent to the FCC for approval and can be clearly seen to be that of the Epic 4G handset. The phone has also been given the model number “SAMSUNG SPH-D700”, which is similar to previous model numbers given by Samsung to its phones that are headed to Sprint.

It is also mentioned in the phone’s test report that the SPH-D700 is a Cellular/PCS CDMA/EvDO phone with Bluetooth, WLAN and WiMax, which makes it clear that the phone in question is indeed the Epic 4G, as Sprint has not announced any other 4G phone on its network for launch in the coming months.

The Samsung Epic 4G has a 4-inch Super AMOLED display and runs on version 2.1 of the Android OS. It also packs a 1 GHz processor and features 512 MB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory, besides the 5 megapixel camera present on its back.
