Epic 4G to arrive at Sprint at 8am on August 11?

The second 4G network compatible handset with an Android OS will arrive on August 11 in Sprint stores, according to a leak published by BGR on Thursday. This is more than a week earlier than previously hinted by its maker, Samsung. The unofficial Sprint source also says stores will open early, at 8AM, in order to accommodate the expected higher demand.

The Epic 4G will share many Galaxy S features and styling cues, but be differentiated mainly by the slide-out QWERTY keyboard and WiMAX network support. It shares the Super AMOLED screen, 5-megapixel camera and 1GHz CPU with the other Samsung Galaxy S handsets, however.

Pricing isn't yet known, but is likely to be similar or slightly higher than the other 4G-capable handset at Sprint, the HTC Evo 4G, which costs $200 on a two-year contract.
