We have recently seen AT&T disclose valuable information on the upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy S4, and now we’re pleased to say that we have a brief update on the status of the highly anticipated Verizon version of the device. Big Red has been noticeably silent on Samsung’s next big flagship handset, although they have committed to releasing the device along with three other main carriers in the US.
This week we have a good indication that the Verizon availability for the handset, shouldn’t be too far off from when AT&T roll out the device in April. Although Verizon are yet to speak out publicly on their pricing plans for the Galaxy S4, we can tell you that the Verizon Galaxy S4 has now stealthily made its way past the FCC barriers and it could be a sign that official news is coming soon.
Verizon customers will be praying that there isn’t another delay that has plagued some of the previous Verizon releases throughout 2012. The Galaxy Note 2 was a prime example of the painful wait that consumers had to endure and hopefully we won’t see a repeat of it for the Galaxy S4.
The FCC listing reveals that the Verizon model name will be identified as SCH-1545, as expected. It’s important to note that while AT&T has already confirmed a pre-order launch date of April 16, Verizon has yet to say anything at all. The big question that we want to know is whether you are willing to wait for the Verizon version if the likes of AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile get their hands on the device a few weeks earlier.
We also have no idea what the Verizon version will look like and whether it will be plastered with Verizon branding again. If you are thinking of picking up this device, let us know your main fears as we wait for a pre-order date.
