Samsung Galaxy S 4 coming to T-Mobile on May 1st

gs4-top-630

When Samsung announced the Galaxy S 4 they said it would launch in Q2, and now the first US carrier has revealed an actual date. Today T-Mobile announced that the Galaxy S 4 will be available on their network starting May 1. No other US carriers have provided specific launch dates, but we will assume that May will be a popular month to launch the device.

T-Mobile did not reveal their pricing, but the Galaxy S 4 is expected to debut around $579 without a contract. Customers who opt for the equipment installation plan should be able to pick up the GS4 for a $99 down payment, and then owe T-Mobile an additional 24 monthly payments of $20.

The jury is still out on the Samsung Galaxy S 4 vs HTC One debate, but it now appears the HTC One will be the first device available for purchase from US carriers when it launches sometime in April.

    There is nothing about the GS4 or the HTC One that would even remotely cause me to consider giving up my Nexus 4.

    • JMo916

      That’s great, glad you chimed in just to let us know how awesome your outdated device is. :)

      I have the Nexus 4, and the upgraded camera and front-facing speakers on the HTC One are the reasons I switched.

      • Don Boogie

        The front-facing speakers are a distinct improvement. Not sure if the camera will be sooo much better as to make up for the Touchwiz/Sense and carrier bloatware. Can’t see myself going back from stock Android.

      • Adrien C.

        Yeah, I’m seriously considering making the change due to this. With good CPU and 2GB ram, I guess Sense won’t be much in the way. The ability to take better pictures, specially in low light is a big game changer…
        Just keep wondering if I won’t hate the locked bootloader and slow updates…

        Bah, my Nexus 4 takes awesome pictures!! In daylight. When I hold it against something. And pray for it to focus.

  • Vance

    …ironically the G4 gets an official launch date on my carrier before the One does. Awesome.

  • John Patrick

    Taylor, knowing your “love” for phone carriers and contracts, I’ll bet you are just giggling over this whole T-Mobile thing.

  • alexanderharri3

    Now that T-Mobile has announced, Verizon is surely to announce…May 23rd availability on May 19th.

    • kazahani

      Well if everyone else is getting it in may, then it should definitley hit Big Red in time for the holidays, I would think.

  • Paul Atreides

    Still no concrete U.S. dates for the HTC One’s appearance. As the sloth Belt would say ” duh duh duh!”. They need to get those dates out along with an advertisement push right now.

    • Deon Davis

      It least you know its in April before the GS4. Both our great phones and will sell great I believe.

      • Paul Atreides

        You’re correct, I just don’t want to see HTC choke again this year. I know Samsung will do what they need to do for the S4.

  • Nathan D.

    Even with the htc one month head start, the g4 will still sell better unfortunately for them. Hopefully, htc will have a better year this time around.

  • donger

    Nice, HTC better sell their HTC One better.

  • rr2009

    Hopefully, there won’t be any delay.

    If T-MO was really wise they would be the first carrier to offer stock phones from carriers with out any bloteware. That with everything else they are doing would be a great thing. Imagine, a buyer wants to test out these new non contract plans, so they jump in, and the phone runs better than any other network because it is stock. That would make a lot of happy customers and they wouldn’t even understand why they liked T-Mobile phones better.
