The Samsung Galaxy S 4 is one of the most anticipated smartphone launches of the year, and AT&T wants consumers to know that it will be the first carrier to start offering the device. In fact, consumers can start preordering it next month.
AT&T announced today that Galaxy S 4 preorders will start on April 16. If you go for a two-year contract, the price will come in at $250. There's no mention of the off contract price, but expect it to be expensive.
There's no word on when the phone will actually launch, but you can probably expect to see it in May. That's at least what T-Mobile thinks as the company's CEO said the device would be launching on its network on May 1. If true, we could see a late April launch on AT&T.
There has been nothing but radio silence from the other carriers in regards to their Galaxy S 4 plans. You can probably expect to see a Verizon launch not soon after the AT&T launch though. The price should remain pretty consistent across all carriers as well.
If you're dead set on getting the Galaxy S 4 with AT&T, you can set up shop at the carrier's landing page. You can also give 'em your email address so you know exactly when preorders open for the new device.[h/t: Engadget]
