Samsung Epic 2 shows up on CelleBrite, launching soon?

There’s no better way to start the week than with a blurry photo and information about a new upcoming Android smartphone. The device in the photo above is supposedly the upcoming Samsung Epic 2, which will be the successor to the original Epic 4G. Our friends over at ACS got their hands on an image which indicates that the device showed up on CelleBrite’s system as the SPH-D705 Epic 2.The model number of the original Epic 4G is SPH-D700, and the Epic 4G Touch is SPH-D710, so this device is probably somewhere in between.

The Epic 2 is rumored to be packing a 4-inch qHD display, 1.2GHz single-core Hummingbird processor, and a 8-megapixel camera. These are not the final specs, so we will hopefully might see some changes before it’s released. ACS is reporting that the device will hit Sprint, but Verge is saying that it may not, because they are considering more high-end devices right now. More on this as it develops.

EDITOR UPDATE: Just got word from PocketNow which clears things up a little bit…

“The image comes from and we never claim that the phone pictured is the SPH-D705, only that the image is taken BY the SPH-D705.

So who’s planning to get this Samsung device? Any OG Epic 4G owners out there that aren’t impressed with the specs? Drop a comment below!

    Too little specs, too late. Why bring such mediocre devices to market?
