The Verizon Galaxy S4 Developer Edition is now available for purchase directly from Samsung.com for full retail price ($649.99).
We’re still looking at the 16GB version of the SCH-I545 model (Verizon’s Galaxy S4) but, as always with developer edition phones, you can expect the device to arrive carrier unlocked and, more importantly, sport an unlocked bootloader.
The Developer Edition version of the Verizon Galaxy S4 isn’t available on Big Red at this time. The mobile operator sells the 16GB model for $199.99 with a new two-year contract, and the handset is available both in black and white. Off-contract, the handset is also priced at $649.99.
However, the Galaxy S4 model sold by Verizon comes with a locked bootloader, which means you’d have to unlock it yourself before customizing your Android experience – there are ways of doing that in case you don’t necessarily want to pay full price for the device.
In case you still haven’t purchased a Galaxy S4 version, you can always check our thorough review of the device (video above).
