Just about every carrier in the United States – except AT&T – has announced delays for the Galaxy S4, and a week delay has been announced in the UK as well. Now Samsung Canada has revealed that the initial supply in Canada will also be limited, an announcement that really comes as no surprise.
Samsung Galaxy S4 pre-orders should go out tomorrow as planned, but the in-store release on May 3rd will see a limited number of handsets. Likely the same situation will apply to folks that buy the handset online without a pre-order. Of course a limited supply is still better than a complete delay.
One thing is sure, just about every Canadian carrier has plans for the Galaxy S4, showing just how much attention already surrounds Samsung’s latest flagship. Canadian carriers planning to launch the handset include Rogers, Telus, Bell, Virgin, Fido, Koodo, Wind, Mobilicity, Videotron, SaskTel, Eastlink and MTS.
For those wondering how long will it be before Samsung works out its supply constraints, that’s a good question. Unfortunately, we have no immediate answer, but we will do our best to keep everyone up to date on the situation.
Do you plan on picking up the Samsung Galaxy S4 as soon as possible? If so, from which carrier?
