During the official announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S4, JK Shin mentioned that the flagship device will be available from 327 network carriers in 155 countries, with a vague, “late April,” release date. As the picture has become clearer over the past few weeks, here is a roundup about the availability and pricing information of the highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S4.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 in the UK will be available on or around April 26 from major network carriers with one or two year contracts, as well as from retail stores off-contract. As far the as the pre-order availability goes, only the 16GB version can be found, with both Black and White color options listed. The UK version of the Galaxy S4 will likely feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with 4G LTE integration, even though not all networks offer 4G LTE at the moment. Here’s a quick look -
While the availability information for the UK is clear, things are still a little up in the air as far as the US is concerned. Only T-Mobile and AT&T have confirmed the pricing scheme for the Samsung Galaxy S4, but other network carriers like Sprint and and Verizon should maintain a similar price point as AT&T. As expected, the US version of the device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor.
Unfortunately, not much is set in stone as far as the Canadian launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is concerned. We do know the the device will be available from almost all network carriers in the country including Rogers, Bell, EastLink, Fido, Telus, Virgin Mobile, Mobilicity, Wind Mobile, Koodoo, SaskTel, and Videotron.
We also know that the “Samsung Galaxy S4 Road Show” will begin on April 8, and will continue till April 26, to showcase the device to employees, which indicates a possible launch after that date. Rumors have been all over the place, suggesting an April 19 release, with most reports agreeing on a mid-May availability.
As far the pricing is concerned, we’ll be looking at a price range of $199 to $299, with a 2 or 3-year contract.
