AT&T’s Galaxy S 4 will go up for preorder on April 16, still no release date in sight

Wondering when you can start the process of getting your hands on a Samsung Galaxy S 4? If you’re an AT&T customer, April 16 is the magical date. AT&T has announced on their consumer blog that their variant of the Galaxy S 4 will be available for preorder next month. Among mentioning that they were first out of the gate with the original Galaxy S, and that they have the best smartphone line-up in the industry, AT&T dropped a $249 on-contract price tag, but failed to mention when the device will actually be released.

At Tuesday’s T-Mobile event, the un-carrier announced that their S 4 variant would be available on May 1. There’s a good chance that’s close to when AT&T’s, along with Sprint and Verizon’s, will be available as well.

With a 5-inch Super AMOLED HD display, 13 megapixel camera, and Android 4.2, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 is undoubtedly one of the most highly anticipated Android handsets of the year. T-Minus one month until it finally drops.

    I wonder if this is the 16gb model or 32? Hopefully verizon sticks with $199 but then again with how they were pricing devices at $299 I can see them going $250 for the s4 since samsung probably didn’t let them plaster their logo on the home button like they did with the note 2

    I wont be getting it regardless, but they better get it out before I/O if they wanna keep the hype train going. Although, I’m sure it’ll sell like hotcakes any. About 95% of my android using friends have galaxy phones. Unfortunately, it’s the first thing that comes to mind for most casual users.

    I hope $250 is for the 32GB model because I was expecting to spend $300 for the 32GB version so a $50 savings could be used to buy some accessories.
