Verizon confirms the Samsung Galaxy S4 will arrive in May

Verizon has taken to Twitter to finally give us launch details for the Samsung Galaxy S4, revealing it will arrive in May.

While Sprint and T-Mobile were the first of the major U.S. networks to confirm details about when the Galaxy S4 was landing on their networks, Verizon had yet to give us the skinny. The good news is that they have finally taken to Twitter to give us launch details.

The bad news is that Verizon just states the S4 is coming in May, telling us that they will have more information soon. We might not have an official date yet, but if a Staples document is to be believed, we could see the phone on May 30th.


That’s quite a bit later than the rest of the big carrier’s late-April release plans, but it isn’t out of character for Verizon and Samsung. Both the Galaxy S3 and Note 2 launched quite a bit later to Verizon than they did other major networks. Better late than never, we suppose.

Again, that date is far from confirmed, and nothing is official until Verizon says so. As for when they might tell us more, earlier today Verizon sent out “save the date” invites for May 22nd, so it’s possible that they could tell us more at their CTIA event.
