While Samsung has been coy about release dates and pricing for the numerous Samsung Galaxy S4 accessories that will be hitting shelves for the Galaxy S4, new leaks seem to have detailed both Galaxy S4 accessory release dates and pricing ahead of the official announcements.
At the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch event, Samsung revealed a number of official Galaxy S4 accessories that will be coming to the market with Samsung’s new flagship smartphone. Samsung unfortunately did not reveal any of the pertinent details about the Galaxy S4 accessories including their release date and their pricing. However, thanks to a new leak, it looks like future Galaxy S4 owners have their information ahead of schedule.
Thanks to leaks from Czech website SamsungMania and SamMobile, we now have a bead on what to expect from the release dates and pricing for Samsung’s Galaxy S4 accessories. According to documents that the websites have uncovered, Samsung plans on releasing its official Galaxy S4 accessories with a staggered approach. That means that they all won’t be released at once. Instead, their releases will span across several months including April, May and July.
Evidently, the Galaxy S4 S View Cover, Flip Cover, and Protective Cover+ will all go on sale between April 1st and April 7th. While it may mean pre-order, the reports suggest that this time refers to their release dates. Look for release dates to vary by region. The S View cover will apparently cost $69.99, the Flip Cover $34.99 and Protective Cover+ $19.99. None of those prices are set in stone which means they are subject to change.
In between April 8th and April 14th, Samsung will evidently release the Galaxy S4 Pouch, Headset, the Extra Battery Kit, HRM and the Galaxy S4 scale. The Pouch will evidently go for $59.99, the Headset for $29.99 and the Extra Battery Kit for $29.99 as well. The HRM is said to be priced at $79.99 while the scale is thought to be $129.99.
Two of the more popular accessories, the GamePad and the Wireless Charging Kit are thought to be going on sale later. The Wireless Charging Kit is supposedly going to arrive sometime between April 22nd and April 28th for $49.99 while the GamePad is thought to be coming in July for $99.99.That price is cheaper than the price that we saw the GamePad emerge for through a pre-order at a third-party retailer.
So, it appears that the accessories will go on sale in just a few weeks, just like the Galaxy S4, which is slated to arrive at the end of April. Today in fact, we received word of our first Galaxy S4 release date in the U.S. as well with T-Mobile planning to release the Galaxy S4 on May 1st.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is Samsung’s latest smartphone and it comes with a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, 13MP camera, Android 4.2, and Samsung smart software amongst other features.
