Samsung’s latest flagship Galaxy S4 was finally revealed to the word this week at a press conference at Radio City Music Hall in New York. The handset was presented in a truly Broadway-like fashion and a handful of new information was added to what we already knew from previous leaks and rumors. If you ask for price and availability in the US, here is what is going to be.
Galaxy S4 confirmed for AT&T and T-Mobile
Samsung’s JK Shin confirmed that the phone will be available late in April, though he did not reveal specific dates. We expect carriers to start announcing launch dates individually soon. Just like previous Samsung products, the Galaxy S4 will launch simultaneously in multiple markets. The handset will be available in 155 countries and will be carried by as many as 327 service providers. In the UK, Everything Everywhere’s customers will be able to pre-order the device starting March 28, and the phone will go on sale on April 26.
In the US, AT&T and T-Mobile have confirmed that they will carry the Galaxy S4 and have launched signup pages. All you have to do to get notification when the handset becomes available is to enter your email address. Other carriers, Verizon, Sprint, Cricket and US Cellular, also have plans to offer the device later this year. There is no official information on pricing yet, but we expect the 16 GB model to sell for $199 with 2-year contract. The 32 G and 64 GB version will obviously be more expensive.
