While rumors were hinting that the Samsung Epic 4G — perhaps the most excitement-worthy Galaxy S variant coming to the US — might get its release as soon as next week, a report over at Engadget is suggesting the phone probably won’t launch until at least the 17th. This date is based off of knowledge they have gained suggesting the Epic 4G could in fact be going on pre-order today, a pre-order that will run until the 17th. If pre-orders do begin and end within that time frame it’s no guarantee that the phone will release on the 17th or even 18th, but we should get a better idea once reservations are being taken.
The current landing page for the Epic 4G remains a simple teaser with dolphins and an area to sign up for a mailer, but this should be the same place where you will be able to sign up for pre-orders once available. Only one reservation per customer will be allowed, and there will be no up front downpayment. The catch? You’ll have to act quick and pick up your phone by noon on launch day. So you may want to check the page periodically throughout the day if you’d like to be one of the first to get a truly epic Galaxy S phone.
