New evidence has surfaced telling of impending “end of life” statuses for several of Sprint’s devices. Some are Android, some aren’t. Highlights include the HTC EVO 4G, Sprint’s original “superphone” following their moderately successful debut Android, the HTC Hero.
Also on the list is the Samsung Epic 4G, the only Galaxy S phone with a hardware QWERTY keyboard to date. Other unsurprising appearances on this list include the short-lived Samsung Transform and the Motorola i1.
It’s important to note that “end of life” doesn’t necessarily mean support will be dropped, just that it will get pretty hard to find one of these on store shelves.
The EVO 4G has already been replaced by its dual-core 3D-enabled sibling, while the drops of both the Samsung Transform and the Samsung Epic 4G are making room for the Samsung Epic 4G 2 and the Samsung Conquer 4G, as well as an expected debut of their Galaxy S II. [SprintFeed]
