More images of Samsung's upcoming 4G slider for Verizon show up online

Do you remember Sprints Epic 4G smartphone? You know, that epic smartphone which was released in the US way back in September last year and boasts a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen and was preloaded with version 2.1 of the Android operating system? Well, it seems that Sprints epic smartphone will now have to take a back seat where epic-ness is concerned, for images of what appears to be a successor to the Epic 4G has showed up online, and that it will be designed to work with Verizons network.

 


According to the report published by AndroidCentral, the yet-unnamed smartphone, while bearing a near-identical design to that of the Epic 4G, comes with a few tweaks and extra features that were not present in the latter. For one, the unnamed smartphones keyboard has had the placement of its "Shift" and "Fn" keys switched, while an additional shortcut button to allow quick access to the devices web browser has been added. On top of that, Android Central has pointed out that the superfluous dedicated emoticon button is now no more, having been moved as a secondary input for the smartphones spacebar.

In addition to the aforementioned differences, AndroidCentral is claiming that the unnamed Samsung slider phone will come preloaded with version 2.3.4 of the Android operating system, as opposed to the Epic 4Gs 2.1, and is supposedly capable of connecting to a 4G LTE network.

 


Last but definitely not least, it would seem that Samsungs unnamed smartphone will also newer and better hardware than the aforementioned Epic 4G: AndroidCentral has claimed through a tipster that the unnamed device could potentially sport a Super AMOLED Plus display which is reportedly capable of "packing in more subpixels than a mere Super AMOLED screen", and that it boasts up to 2GB of internal flash memory. And if that was not enough, AndroidCentral is also claiming that the smartphone boasts performance levels superior to that of the Fascinate, and sports both front and rear-facing cameras.

Of course, dont expect this powerhouse of a smartphone to ever make its way down to our shores in some other form or variant any time soon (if at all), especially if the fact that the Epic 4G, which is also known as the Galaxy S Pro in other parts of the world, has yet to find itself on our local retail shelves, is of any indication.

We have posted two stories about HTCs upcoming Bliss smartphone for the ladies, but to date, not once had we been able to provide a proper image of the smartphone, if only because HTC appeared to be extremely determined in keeping the smartphone tightly under wraps until its eventual release. However, the good news is that consumers who have been wanting to get a good look at the Bliss need not wait any longer, for XDA.cn has just published a handful of Bliss images that are of rather decent quality.

 

 

Once again, little is known about the HTC Blisss specifications, although XDA.cn is claiming that the smartphone will ship with version 3.5 of the HTC Sense UI, and that its design bears a great deal of similarity to HTCs Desire S smartphone. In fact, XDA.cn has also confirmed that the Blisss screen size is identical to that of the Desire S. Nice.
