Samsung Galaxy S4

While we’ve yet to see an official release date announced for the Samsung Galaxy S4 in Canada, several carriers have now started offering pre-registration for the device. Included on this list is Virgin Mobile, which is also planning on giving away the handset to one lucky winner.

Virgin Mobile is offering several different methods of entry for the contest, including signing up through Facebook, Twitter, email, SMS and directly through their website.

The contest also reveals a few new details about the Canadian Galaxy S4, such as calling out its model number as i337M, and stating that the retail prize is valued at $699.99. This falls in line with the launch price of the Galaxy S3, which was around $600-$700.

Although you probably have already heard the specs for the Galaxy S4, we’ll go ahead and give you a brief recap. Depending on the region, some countries will see the Galaxy S4 powered by a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor, with others getting a 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor. If Canada’s Galaxy S4 follows the same pattern as the S3, Canadian users will get the Snapdragon model.

Outside of the processor, the phone features a 4.99-inch Full HD super AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP back cam, a 2MP front cam, microSD, an Infrared blaster and many new software improvements. As for the OS, the phone will ship with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean running the TouchWiz Nature UI.
