July 11 according to this guy
Release Date? - Page 2 - Android Central Forums
The 11th would work for me...
That would be great, but I believe the Moment's successor, the Intercept, is rumored to be released on the 11th. I suppose it's possible for both to be released on the 11th, but I would think it's unlikely.
I think you are right.
The sooner the better, but I am still hoping for mid August.
My second line just became eligible for a full upgrade two days ago, so I am chomping at the bit and ready to get a new phone...lol.
My Evo had a heart attack during the second OTA update earlier this week, so I returned it. :-( Would love to have the Epic come out soon!
It's not going to be July 11th, that's the Samsung Intercept AKA Moment 2. It's most likley to be available no sooner than the first week of August with preorders being possible the last couple weeks of July.
Did you see a beginning of August rumor somewhere?
The sooner the better! I'm deciding between this and an Evo.
Well I guess one good thing that happened was tmo pushed up the release of the vibrant to july 15th. So if that's any indication, I hope here soon!
I am in the same boat...love the look of the EVO with kick stand...but love the specs of the epic as well.....
Form over function for me. Plus you can always add a fancy case to your Epic 4G
Yea I know... I just wish there was a release date.
I hope we hear something sometime soon too.
Quote from and Engadget post relating to the Samsung Captivate on AT&T:
"Still, all four US nationals are getting this thing in July, which is an extremely impressive Android coup for the boys and girls over at Sammy."
Samsung Captivate coming to AT&T on July 18 for $200 -- Engadget
at least this displaces all the rumors that Sammy and T-Mobile had some sort of temporary exclusivity for the American versions of the SGS.. now we can hope that the epic is not too far behind
my only hope is that the explanation for this alleged amoled shortage is because of this huge launch by Sammy in 110 countries, I would like to be guaranteed an epic through pre-order, but as long as I can get one by the end of august, with a super amoled screen, i'll be happy; i sure as hell hope they don't choose to start replacing them with lcds like they did with the incredible
AMOLED Shortage Might Last For Years | Android Phone Fans
email response from the Engadget writer of this article:
Rumors of T-Mobile having exclusivity of this phone was thrown out the window about a month ago when the Captivate was announced.
nah I meant having "exclusivity" in being able to release their phone and having it on the market for a month or two before the other galaxy s models made their way to the other big three, not in the sense that nobody else would have the phone
I really do wish sprint would hurry up and do it already!!!
Sitting here wanting to move from ATT to Sprint, was going to go for the EVO, but really do like the AMOLED screen of the Epic and trying to wait.....and, wait....and, wait....., but I have to tell once those Verizon and ATT Galaxy S phones come out, it is going to get harder, and harder, and harder!!!!
Yea i wish they would announce already too. Unfortunately sprint isnt very good at this whole process. They seem to like to wait until the phone has lost the momentum of the unveiling and then announce a release date. Then that phone will hit stores a month after that. Knowing sprint it will come out a day before the white Iphone 4 thus causing all hype and sales to go in the toilet. LOL....... Just like releasing the Palm Pre and Evo right before Apples WWDC. Come on sprint, get it right this time and make us all happy proud Epic owners.
Sprint needs get this to the masses before it becomes obsolete. Phones are advancing at light speed recently. Also while there is still a lot of hype surrounding the device.
The only thing Sprint has going for it right now is the other carriers keeping this phone alive and well while sprint sits and does nothing. I can understand Verizon not advertising their version much because they have the DroidX to focus on as well as the Droid 2.
I've heard everything from late July to early September. Not sure who to believe anymore.
I'm gonna speculate an August 15th release which is a Sunday. Sprint is giving $100 instant rebates on sprint.com (except for Evo) til the 14th of August.
Sprint is offering up to $100 in instant rebates when buying a phone online until 8/14 (Phone Arena News)
Purely speculation on my part. I hope it's no later.
I'm hoping for July 25th
