So there might no sign of the Samsung Galaxy S3 at next month’s MWC—but thanks to a photo obtained by PocketNow, we have a new Samsung smartphone to gush over: the Samsung Epic 2 (first revealed as a mystery phone on its way to Sprint). According to PocketNow, the photo is not the device, but how images would look like when captured by the device’s camera. Along with this photo, ACS also got an image which indicates that the Epic 2 has already showed up on the system of CelleBrite as the SPH-D705 Epic 2. While many speculate that the device is a successor of the original Epic 4G phone, its model number says so much: Epic 4G’s model number is SPH-D700, while the Epic 4G Touch’s numberis SPH-D710.

As for the features of the Epic 2, the phone is rumored to have a 1.2GHz single-core Hummingbird processor, 4-inch qHD display, and 8MP camera. Since these aren’t final specs of the phone, many believe that it will go through more changes before its release. Judging by the blurriness of the photo, it might not have an 8MP camera after all.

While ACS claims that the unit will arrive in Sprint, The Verge is claiming otherwise—especially since Sprint is considering more high-end devices now.


We don’t know any specifics yet, but as soon as more reports show, we’ll be sure to update you.
