We have heard very strong rumors about the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 launching in May, but now we’re pleased to be able to confirm it at last. Verizon has now revealed via Twitter that the device will be going on sale sometime in May. Surprise surprise though, they are still being reluctant to reveal an actual release date for the highly anticipated phone.
Perhaps even more importantly, Verizon has not revealed the date in which interested consumers will be able to pre-order the device ahead of expected unprecedented demand. However, it’s nice to see some official news from Verizon for once and consumers will at least be revealed to hear that the wait for the Galaxy S4 won’t be too long from when AT&T and T-Mobile sell their version of the device to respective customers.
Verizon has said in the Tweet that more details are on the way soon, whilst at the same time revealing an image of the Verizon Galaxy S4 which also confirms our previous report on how there will be no home screen button branding – which is obviously fantastic news.
Verizon has revealed the device in White Frost, but you should also be able to choose from Black Mist upon launch as well. Hopefully it won’t be too long until pre-orders become available, as Verizon really should be getting the word across that their version is worth waiting for, with the AT&T and T-Mobile variants due out significantly earlier.
A pre-order incentive wouldn’t go a miss as well, although that will probably happen with various retailers online. Verizon are also advertising something special to happen on May 22, which could be related to the Galaxy S4 release. Other possibilities for the event include confirmation that Verizon will finally be offering a version of the popular HTC One, but we’ll have to wait for further rumors on this.
What are your thoughts on the Verizon Galaxy S4 – do you plan to wait and get one on May 30, if that is indeed the date of release?
