Walmart Puts $99 Tag on Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Pre-order

US based retail outfit Walmart is now accepting pre-orders of Samsung Galaxy S II from Sprint, dubbed Epic 4G Touch, the company announced. Amazingly, this new offering from the retail giant has been priced at just $99.

Previously, consumers were expecting the Epic 4G Touch to come with a price tag of somewhere around $199, bound by a two year contract. However, much to the joy of the fans, Walmart has brought down the price of the device to just $99. The duration of the contract and other obligations remain the same though.

Samsung had unveiled on August 30 three unique versions of the Galaxy S II for all the major US based telecom carriers excluding Verizon Wireless.

Amongst these three different versions, Sprint’s Epic 4G Touch is likely to be the first product to be hitting store shelves. The release date has been scheduled on September 16.

All these three versions, aimed at the AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile users differ from the original version of the Galaxy S II in terms of screen size, as well as physical dimensions.

The Epic 4G Touch brings along with it a large 4.52 inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.2 GHz dual core processor, WiMAX 4G, 16GB internal storage, 1 GB RAM, 8 megapixel rear and 2 megapixel front facing camera.
