AT&T’s the first carrier to announce pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S 4. According to a small announcement posted on its website today, AT&T will begin pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 beginning on April 16. In terms of pricing, the Galaxy S 4 16GB model will set you back $249 on a two year contract.
The typical Galaxy S 16GB model price is $199, so the increase in price is a bit surprising, but perhaps that is the trend of new flagship devices. A couple of days ago, T-Mobile provided us with its launch date for the Galaxy S 4, which is May 1st. Perhaps we can expect a similar launch date for AT&T, but at the very least, interested customers may secure their own Galaxy S 4 beginning April 16th. The full announcement can be read below:
Continuing our legacy as the first carrier to launch Samsung’s Galaxy series, we are excited to announce AT&T customers will be able to begin pre-ordering the Galaxy S® 4 beginning April 16 for $249.99 with a two-year commitment. We are proud to offer this iconic device and continue to offer our customers the best smartphone line-up, with a variety of devices for every lifestyle and budget.
