Samsung announced Wednesday morning that its flagship Galaxy S4 will be available on a staggering seven U.S. carriers later in the month, including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, U.S. Cellular, Cricket and C Spire. And while Samsung left it to those individual carriers to announce their own release dates and prices, it did say that customers can expect to see the S4 in stores by the end of April.
We’re still waiting for the largest of those carriers — Verizon and AT&T — to make announcements. We do, however, have Galaxy S4 launch information from T-Mobile and Sprint, both of whom have already shared details of when customers can expect to purchase the GS4 on their respective networks.
On Sprint, a 16GB Galaxy S4 will cost $250 with a two-year contract, or $149 for new customers, and will be available on April 27th. Sprint notes in a press release that it will offer unlimited data with the Galaxy S4, potentially distinguishing it from AT&T and Verizon.
T-Mobile, meanwhile, which just unveiled its new “un-carrier” mobile plans that do away with two-year contracts, has announced that its Galaxy S4 will be available starting at $150, plus monthly device payments. (For the iPhone 5, those payments came out to $20 per month). On T-Mobile’s recently unveiled plans, you are not locked into a contract, and you receive unlimited data, voice minutes and text messages.
