On the heels of the Samsung Galaxy S4 announcement, three American carriers have outright confirmed the Galaxy S4 for their 4G LTE networks as AT&T, Sprint and Verizon will be offering the Galaxy S4 in the future.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 was finally announced today at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City amongst a throng of onlookers and media coverage. The device had been rumored for months up until this date with rumors surfacing on a daily basis. Now, we know what to expect from Samsung’s Next Big Thing as the device has been confirmed to have a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, 13MP camera, Android Jelly Bean, a design similar to the Galaxy S3 and some powerful smart software from Samsung.
In other words, many of the rumors that we heard prior to the device’s launch today proved to be accurate. In the build up to the launch however, rumors about American carriers were scarce with only AT&T and Verizon surfacing in rumors. Before the announcement, only Sprint MVNO carrier Ting had confirmed the device for launch.
Now, U.S. carriers have joined the party as AT&T, Sprint and Verizon have all confirmed the Samsung Galaxy S4 for launch with Verizon delivering the news through a tweet and Sprint and AT&T delivering the announcements through their websites.
All three will be carrying the device on their 4G LTE networks and while specific timing is not yet known, Sprint is saying that the device will roll out some time in the second quarter of this year which means that it will be available sometime in the months of April, May or June.
AT&T and Verizon will be getting the device in the second quarter as well, along with T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular.
Samsung has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will roll out globally starting at the end of April and rumors have suggested that U.S. carriers will get the device in May or June.
T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Cricket Wireless have also confirmed that the Galaxy S4 will be coming to their networks in the second quarter of this year.
