Samsung Epix Leak

The third generation of Samsung's BlackJack line for AT&T should get a new name along with a substantially new design, a promo leak to BGR shows. Now called the Epix, the internally named i780 will keep the QWERTY keyboard of the earlier phones but switch to a much more advanced design that includes a mini-touchpad in place of the directional pad as well as direct touchscreen interface for Windows Mobile 6.1; 3G over AT&T's HSPA network and real GPS are also understood to be givens for the design.

Samsung's refresh is said to be coming quickly and should be available at or near October 23rd for a predicted $199 after including a carrier discount and a rebate. It's not known whether the phone will replace the BlackJack II outright or serve as a higher-end alternative.
