Verizon’s Galaxy S4 registration page is now online, letting interested buyers sign up to receive more details about the handset but not revealing any availability dates.
The page says the phone is “coming soon” but doesn’t mention pre-order or shipping details at this time. It’s just the regular sign up page many mobile operators set up for popular upcoming smartphones.
Verizon is one of the seven carriers in the USA that will stock the Galaxy S4 this year, but it will be launching its Galaxy S4 version later than its main competitors.
The carrier took to Twitter to confirm the Galaxy S4 will arrive at some point in May, without actually revealing pricing or release date.
Other Big Four mobile operators including AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile will have the handset in stores in late April, which is when U.S. Cellular’s version should also ship. Launch details for Cricket and C Spire aren’t available at this time.
This isn’t the first time Verizon is late launching Galaxy devices, as both the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 launched later with the carrier than with its competitors.
We’ll be back with pricing details and ship dates for the Galaxy S4 once Verizon makes them available.
