Verizon Galaxy S4 Shipping Ahead of Release Date

Verizon has started shipping off Samsung Galaxy S4 pre-orders and it appears that some of those Verizon Galaxy S4 pre-orders could arrive ahead of the device’s May 23rd release date that will take place both online and in stores.

We have received numerous tips from those who pre-ordered the Verizon Galaxy S4 through Verizon who say that the carrier has begun shipping out Verizon Galaxy S4 pre-orders, ahead of the device’s scheduled May 23rd release date, a release that other retailers will subscribe to as well.

Like AT&T though, it appears that Verizon may be rewarding those who pre-ordered with the device ahead of schedule as shipping projections for some put the device as arriving on Wednesday, though with devices shipping out on May 18th, that would not fall in line with two day shipping. That leaves the door open for an early release. This is great news for those that pre-ordered through Verizon and it should mean that many, or most of those who pre-ordered the device, at least through Verizon, will get the heralded phone either before or on release day.

The Verizon Galaxy S4 will arrive early for some.

The Verizon Galaxy S4 of course is also available through a number of other outlets as well including Best Buy, Staples, RadioShack and Walmart. Best Buy and Staples have informed us that they will have the device in stock on May 23rd as well, something that bodes extremely well for those that pre-ordered the device through them. RadioShack and Walmart have remained mum with us, though we imagine they will follow suit as well.

Verizon’s version of the Galaxy S4 will be the last variant from a major carrier to arrive, following in the footsteps of the AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular models, all of which arrived in some form or another in April.

This model won’t be the last Galaxy S4 to arrive though as several smaller carriers are in line to debut their models in the weeks ahead. Samsung will also be delivering several new Galaxy S4 devices in the coming months with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Activ and a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini in the cards for later this year.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is Samsung’s latest and greatest and it comes equipped with a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, 13MP camera, sleek and slim design and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
