Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch confirmed early

Samsung's much anticipated Galaxy S II smartphone is about to get its official US debut later this evening. It's set to launch on three of the four major US carriers with the device to vary slightly for each. One of these variants is a WiMAX version called the Samsung Epic 4G Touch, which has apparently outed itself a bit early.

A product slide showing the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch turned up on Samsung's Mobile Product site, essentially confirming the device ahead of schedule. We've already seen the device in leaked press shots, so it's not a complete surprise anyhow. But what's interesting is that the slides indicate that the handset will actually sport a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, which is a bump up from the 4.3-inch screen of the original Galaxy S II.

Still, there are variants for AT&T and T-Mobile that have yet to be leaked. We'll be covering the Samsung event live in NYC, so make sure to check back by 6pm EST for the full official details on the US debut of the Samsung Galaxy S II.
