The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the new flagship for Samsung smartphones, replacing the Samsung Galaxy S3. While it features a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, 13MP camera, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, its release date and pricing is still unmentioned.
As how well Verizon continued to hide specific details about their version of the S4, we at PentagonPost finally squared the mum as one of our sources had the chance to get better information during the carrier’s stop in the FCC on its way to the United States.
As you may already know, Samsung announced the Galaxy S4 in the mid-March at an event in New York. After the event, Unted States’ top 5 largest phone carriers confirmed each arrival for Galaxy S4 in a list that includes AT&T, Verizn, T-Mobile, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular
Because of the emergence of an FCC filing which transcribes the device’s passing on all the tests on its way to Verizon’s LTE network, base on our source, it seems that Verizon’s version of the Galaxy S4 is nearing to a release. It is already confirmed that the Verizon model has the SCH-i545 tag, which utilizes over 700MHZ and AWS frequency from its 4G LTE speed.
There is also an on board HSPA+ 3G for the Galaxy S4. This means that Verizon’s Galaxy S4 is a global device also fitted for individuals that wish to travel outside U.S.
While our rumor suggests Verizon Galaxy S4’s nearing, the FCC filing didn’t disclosed two important information that most people are speculating – its pricing and release date is still far-fetched. So far, we haven’t heard of new rumors regarding the information, and so remains its mystery.
While we are waiting for a hint for the device’s pricing and release date, we have confirmed certain facts that are likely to take place. AT&T and U.S. Cellular are said to be offering their models up for a pre-order on April 16th while T-Mobile later on May 1st. It looks like that May is the probable Month of all these Galaxy variants. However, other carriers like Sprint and Verizon remained silent.
And for the pricing, AT&T has already announced that their Galaxy S4 will cost starting at 249 USD not specifying which storage option. T-Mobile has also announced that their Galaxy S4 variant will start at a 99 USD plan.
