About a week ago, AT&T announced that the pre-order price for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 would be $249 on a two year contract. The information provided by AT&T was slightly confusing and misleading since the carrier failed to provide the exact model.
Today, AT&T clarified the original pre-order statement by explaining the 16GB model will cost $199 on a two year contract, and the 32GB Galaxy S 4 will cost $249 on a two year contract. The price points for the two Galaxy S 4 models matches up with what occurred for the Galaxy S III a year ago. Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 are expected to begin April 16th.
It is interesting to compare the Galaxy S 4 models with the HTC One models purely on price. The 32GB HTC One costs $199 on a two year contract, while the 64GB model costs $299 on a two year contract. The Samsung Galaxy S 4 16GB costs $199 and the 32GB model costs $249. However, it is important to keep in mind the Galaxy S 4 includes microSD memory expansion, whereas the HTC One does not.
