Verizon GALAXY S 4 pre-orders open tomorrow as shipments remain secret

Posted In News - By AndroidPress on Wednesday, April 24th, 2013 With No Comments »

While we have yet to see some of the specifics from Verizon Wireless, we now know they will have GALAXY S 4 pre-orders available as of tomorrow. The details have arrived by way of their official @VZnews Twitter account, however despite being able to move forward with a pre-order on April 25 — we are still yet to see an official release date.

Verizon Wireless has previously said the GALAXY S 4 would be available in May, but aside from offering that tidbit, the specific release date remains a mystery at the moment. Needless to say, we suspect some are ready and willing to move forward regardless. That being the case you should probably be aware of the pricing. Verizon has said the 16GB GALAXY S 4 will be selling for $199.99.

The catch with that price is how it comes after a $50 mail-in rebate. In other words, be prepared to shell out $249.99 on the day of purchase. This of course places the Verizon GALAXY S 4 at the same price as the AT&T GALAXY S 4. T-Mobile on the other hand is still using their UNcarrier approach which means the GALAXY S 4 will be available with a downpayment of $149.99 with an additional 24 payments of $20.

Taking the May release timeframe into consideration, and we can only hope that doesn’t mean May 30. Otherwise, one point that Verizon Wireless users will not have to worry about is deciding between the GALAXY S 4 and the HTC One. That being the case, our recently published GALAXY S 4 review may help to answer any lingering questions that you may have.

[Update] Verizon hasn’t said when the GALAXY S 4 pre-orders would ship just yet, however they have since confirmed the in-store availability date. The details were posted by Ken Muche (@VZWken) who has said the handset will be available in-stores on May 30.
