Galaxy S4 won't come in 32GB or 64GB models on U.S. Cellular
Samsung’s Galaxy S4 has been picking up a lot of traction in the U.S., but for the most part, the 32GB and 64GB versions remain to be seen. Now, U.S. Cellular has sent word to Gotta Be Mobile that, at the time being, they don’t have plans to carry 32GB and 64GB versions of Samsung’s “Next Big Thing”.
To quote U.S. Cellular word for word:
At this time we don’t have plans to carry the 32GB or 64GB versions of the Galaxy S 4
It’s quite disappointing news to hear when you consider that the 16GB model of the Galaxy S4 only has 8.82GB of storage available to the user, as the Android OS, preloaded apps and Samsung’s additions take up the rest. If you’re a power user, you really may want to consider a microSD card if you plan on grabbing a Galaxy S4.
We’re not sure why we haven’t seen 32GB or 64GB Galaxy S4 models available from carriers just yet, but it may have something to deal with an “overwhelming global demand” and supply issues Samsung earlier mentioned.
Keep in mind that nobody, aside from U.S. Cellular, hasn’t confirmed or denied 32GB and 64GB versions, so there’s still hope to see these larger storage options in the future. Let’s just hope we see these larger storage options sooner than later.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 supports a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED 1920 x 1080 Full HD display with 441ppi. It has a 1.9GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing shooter, a 2MP front-facing camera and has a microSD slot with support for up to 64GB of expandable storage. On the software front, the device is running Samsung’s TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 atop of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
