Anticipation for the Samsung Galaxy S4 release date is really starting to reach fever pitch now. The highly anticipated superphone is due out in the US at the end of this month and we now have some potentially crucial launch dates to bring you now on the Galaxy S4 on Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile.
It is Big Red’s version of the device that is getting the most attention it seems though, partly due to the fact that Verizon are insisting on staying true to their now infamous silent tactics. AT&T and T-Mobile have already provided customers with a solid order-date, but Verizon is keeping everyone waiting.
In our previous report, we told you that it was likely that a Galaxy S4 release date on AT&T would happen on April 26, followed by a T-Mobile launch on May 1. While this is still a rumor at this point, we do have some new evidence to back it up with the release of an internal document courtesy of Engadget.
This document name drops the April 26 and May 1 launch dates for the AT&T and T-Mobile launches respectively, but we also have a potential Verizon Galaxy S4 release date as well to share with you, for the very first time. Considering that the dates for AT&T and T-Mobile match up, we could be seeing a Verizon release a month later than their rivals with a May 30 release date.
After what happened with the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 2, consumers are probably expecting a delay of some sort on the S4, especially with the continued silence from the company. How will you feel though if the device really is scheduled for a release one month after AT&T and T-Mobile customers receive their handsets?
Are Verizon starting to lose some reputation over the staggered releases, or will they actually benefit from increased hype in this situation? Perhaps the question that we should be asking you, is whether you are willing to wait another month until May 30 to get one.
Don’t forget that the dates are not confirmed yet, but definitely look promising and are something to bear in mind. The document cites the dates as ‘tentative’, but are you now feeling a bit ‘tentative’ yourself about buying the Galaxy S4 on Verizon?
