AT&T’s landing page for the Samsung Galaxy S4 has been updated with a few more details on when the phone will be available from the carrier. The handset is now listed with an April 30th shipping date. For some folks who have already been able to pre-order their device, a delivery date of on or before May 3rd seems to be the consensus.
While we have been unable to initiate the pre-order process ourselves, those who have confirm that the Galaxy S4 will be available in both White Frost and Black Mist and the 16GB model will retail for $199 on a new two-year contract. It appears the pre-order has only gone live for customers in certain regions (either that or AT&T jumped the gun and has since halted orders).
The date on AT&T’s site contradicts info out of retailer Staples. Yesterday it was reported that the store expected to begin selling AT&T’s Galaxy S4 on April 26th. While that is still a possibility, it seems unlikely that official pre-orders would ship later than third-party retail availability.
