Looks like samsung has 1800 mAh battery for the new Epic touch 4G. Looks very similar to Galaxy S series battery. It will be great if it fits vibrant!

Look at 1:50 into the below video

Don't quote me but it might be slightly taller, it's hard to tell from the video though.

Some guy that works for sprint tried to claim yes it 100% will in another thread.

But I don't really believe him.

If its like the international SGS2 battery then as posted, its too tall.

Someone go to a sprint store when those hit and try one. Just ask for a device, debox and try the battery haha.

Two things I noticed since I posted....the connectors on the battery are on right side for epic touch and left side for vibrant? And epic touch being 4.5 inch screen phone it is possible that battery is bigger albeit same shape :(

Thanks for pointing me to that thread. One thing for sure the epic touch 4G battery is different from other galaxy s2 variants as it is seen in the video I posted. They guy may be even right it physically fits into old epic (that means vibrant too). But I have to see if the connectors on the right versus left is a deal braker.

Okay, looking at the video the battery goes into the new phone with the side with mAh printed inwards. In vibrant that side is outwards! So this could mean position of the connectors is not an issue :) I am still hopeful.
