Leaked Samsung Epic 4G photo with Verizon logo

Samsung’s Epic 4G, which is currently available on Sprint, could possibly be bought via Verizon Wireless later this year. The leaked photos showed a Verizon Wireless logo on the device.

The newly leaked photographs suggested that Samsung is set to launch an Epic 4G on Verizon Wireless that will have Verizon’s 4G LTE network as compared to Sprint’s WiMAX.

The phone will have its original 4-inch display with a 5MP, 2592 x 1944 pixels, autofocus, LED flash camera, run on Android 2.2 or Eclair and will be powered by a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, PowerVR SGX540 GPU, Hummingbird chipset.

The only major upgrades the smartphone is rumored to receive are a front-facing 1.3MP camera (which previously was a VGA or 0.3MP camera) and LTE-compatibility as compared to the Sprint version of the smartphone. There will be no changes in the model however. Current Samsung Epic 4G available at Sprint

The device, at the moment, is available for $149.99 on a two-year agreement at Sprint. The Verizon version of the phone is expected to cost more as there are other powerful smartphones on Verizon at the same price, the androidcentral reported.
