Samsung Epic-Slider to Ride Verizon

July 18, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We have been expecting it and now that expectation is going to take root. Samsung’s slider is going to come riding on Verizon.

Images of the Sprint Epic 4G Android smartphone is seen with Verizon Wireless branding, 4G LTE support instead of Sprint’s WiMax networking, and the Android operating system.  The look of the device from early leaked pictures suggests it to be a successor of Samsung’s Galaxy S 1′s instead of being a branded variant of the Galaxy S II.

The Epic-slider’s entry on Verizon will have the carrier see four variants of the original Galaxy S 1 smartphone. This handset will join the Verizon Fascinate as well as the Continuum in addition to the newly launched Droid Charge 4G LTE handset.

Going through the specifications, we see that it will most likely be a keyboarded version of the Droid Charge. It will run Android 2.3.4 and be powered by a 1.0 GHz single-core Hummingbird processor.

The device will pack 2GB of internal storage and 512MB of RAM. There’s a 5 megapixel shooter in the rear and a front camera for video chat. Verizon is also planning to bundle it with a 4G LTE radio as well.

Looks like Verizon’s got a good package in the offing and with a keyboard along, this might be a hit with fans who love tapping away.
