In a short Twitter message AT&T has confirmed that the in-store release date for the Galaxy S4 is set for Saturday, April 27:

Starting 4/27, #Samsung Galaxy S4 16GB available in our stores. #GalaxyS4

The carrier already has the handset available for pre-order – the 16GB Galaxy S4 version sells for $199.99 with new two-year contracts – but AT&T has failed to specify in its Galaxy S4 pre-order announcement when the device will hit its brick-and-mortar stores.


Furthermore, while AT&T lists April 30 as the ship date for Galaxy S4 pre-orders, it looks like some buyers will get their unit a few days earlier than expected. According to the AT&T notification in the screenshot below, some early Galaxy S4 buyers will be receiving it “as soon as April 25th.”


A few days ago, AT&T posted an April 23 ship date for the Galaxy S4 on the handset’s pre-order page, but the date was quickly replaced with the April 30 ship date that was initially offered by the carrier. At the time, we wondered whether it was just a glitch in the system or whether lucky early Galaxy S4 buyers will get their new toy a lot earlier than expected. It now appears that AT&T has indeed managed to ship early at least a few units.

    Samsung’s new smartphone sports an improved design over the Galaxy S3 and is packed with a ton of high-end features and specialized software. The device, which runs the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, has a super-size screen and higher resolution, more battery capacity, and faster processor than its predecessor.Until the next arrival of the iphone 6.
