AT&T announced via Twitter the launch date of its 32GB Galaxy S4, confirming pricing details in the process:

As you can see, the AT&T 32GB Galaxy S4 will be available starting with May 10, for $249.99 with new two-year agreements

AT&T was the first U.S. carrier to mention 32GB Galaxy S4 prices, although we’re not sure whether it intended to do so in the first place. In case you forgot, we’ll remind you that initially AT&T announced that the Galaxy S4 will be available for pre-order for $249.99 with new two-year contracts. Then, after some backslash from the media, AT&T said that the 32GB Galaxy S4 would cost $249.99, while the 16GB model will cost $199.99.

However, AT&T did not launch the 32GB model simultaneously with the 16GB version. In fact no mobile operator or electronics retailer stocked the handset yet, and AT&T could be the first one to offer it to buyers.

A few days ago, the media took an interest in the available storage to the user on the 16GB Galaxy S4 version – only around 9GB out of the 16GB – with Samsung rather annoyingly responding that those users that need more storage could always buy microSD cards (the phone supports cards of up to 64GB).

Now, at least some Galaxy S4 buyers will be able to get more on-board storage by buying the AT&T 32GB version.

At this time, we have no idea when the 64GB model will be available, or what carriers will offer the 32GB version in the near future. However, we do know that U.S. Cellular will only have the 16GB model in stock.

In case the fact that handset has been confirmed to come with a locked bootloader from AT&T, you should also know that the bootloader has apparently been unlocked, but a public version of the procedure will be released only after Verizon launches its own Galaxy S4 model.

    Too late, I already ordered the LG Optimus G Pro, bigger screen, same 1080p, got 32GB instead of waiting week, months or who knew when. Disappointed it wasn’t announce before I ordered but oh well I missed the GN2 screen size and now I have it back but with real internal storage.
