We have some important news for consumers who have already put down a pre-order for the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone on AT&T. The carrier has sent out the word that those who have ordered a device can now expect to receive their handset earlier than expected, even as soon as this week if AT&T maintains their word.
We have been keeping you updated with the release status of the device over the last few weeks, recently telling you that the AT&T Galaxy S4 had initially been scheduled for an official launch on April 30. If you head to AT&T’s product page, you’ll still see the April 30 date still stands, but the carrier has been sending out emails stating that those who have pre-ordered can look forward to receiving their Galaxy S4 as early as April 25.

On top of that, AT&T has also revealed on Twitter that the Galaxy S4 will be available in stores this Saturday on April 27, so those who have pre-ordered are definitely the big winners here. It also means that if you haven’t ordered a Galaxy S4 from AT&T yet, it may be better heading to your nearest store on Saturday, rather than having to wait until a later shipment from AT&T online on April 30.
Basically put, it is going to be a very happy weekend indeed for those who are now set to receive their Galaxy S4 earlier on Thursday. Credit has to go to AT&T this time actually, as the carrier has done a good job keeping consumers informed of status updates for their Galaxy S4 inventory, unlike over on Verizon with the frustrating silence ongoing.
The question is, did you pre-order a Galaxy S4 from AT&T and have you received the email from the carrier stating that you’ll be getting yours on April 25?
