Ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S4 release date, which is set to arrive first at the end of April, comes word that one retailer will start pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S4 March 28th and offer several free accessories for those that purchase the phone early.
Earlier this month, Samsung unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S4, its successor to the Galaxy S3, and a device that is coming with a powerful set of features. Samsung’s new high-end device features a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, 13MP camera, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and a host of smart Samsung software features. It also features a release date that is weeks away.
Samsung announced that the Galaxy S4 release date would first touch down in late April and retailers and carriers in the United Kingdom have confirmed both April 25th and April 26th as release dates. And now, one of those retailers is set to kick off pre-orders about a month ahead of the Galaxy S4′s eventual release.
Carphone Warehouse, a retailer in the UK, has announced that it will kick off Galaxy S4 pre-orders starting March 28th. The retailer will be releasing the phone on April 26th, which means that those who do pre-order the device will have to wait a little less than a month for the device to arrive.
In order to make the wait bearable, Carphone Warehouse says that it will be throwing in some free stuff for those that pre-order. The accessory bundle for Galaxy S4 pre-orders will include an in-car charger, screen protector and Galaxy S4 case.
This is the first time that we’ve seen a pre-order go live for the Galaxy S4 and we imagine that it will be followed by several other companies vying for the attention from consumers looking to snag the Samsung Galaxy S4 when it goes on sale.
Other than the UK, the Galaxy S4 doesn’t have any firm dates. Italy and India are supposedly getting the device in early May while the United States has been rumored to be getting it sometime in May or June. Carriers in the U.S. have yet to make their plans known.
