samsung-galaxy-s-iiWe first heard rumors the Samsung Galaxy S II was headed Sprint a few weeks ago. Now Boy Genius Report has learned that Sprint will indeed be getting the handset, launching the Sprint model as the "Samsung Epic Touch 4G."

BGR's sources claim the Gingerbread handset will be launching in September, will have 4G WiMAX connectivity, and will lack the QWERTY keyboard found on the original Epic 4G.

Pictures of the Sprint-branded Galaxy S II surfaced on the web mid-July. Samsung sold an astounding 5 million of the handsets in its first 85 days on the market, with none of those sales taking place in the U.S.
