Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S4 visits FCC
The nation's largest carrier, Verizon, was finally able to book some time with the FCC so that the agency could see its version of the Samsung Galaxy S4. Just the other day, we saw both Sprint and MetroPCS get their version of the phone to visit the Feds. Before the U.S. carriers starting meeting with the FCC, the international version of the phone did the same thing.

Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S4 has visited the FCC

Verizon hasn't announced its pricing intention yet for the flagship Android model, but with AT&T announcing the other day that it will charge $249 for the phone with a signed two year contract, Big Red might fall into line and charge the same amount; that would be a $50 hike over the price of it's version of the Samsung Galaxy S III on contract.

Just in case you need to know, the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is model number SCH-I545 and offers support for lucky LTE band number 13. Verizon will also use some AWS LTE signals this year, and the phone works on AWS LTE band 4. The unit will also carry HSPA support for roaming capabilities.

I just stopped at Verizon and the rep there got to play with the S4 yesterday. He said the phone will blow you out of the water along with every other phone out there. He hinted at the phone note necessarily being plastic, but more of an aluminum kind of material. I think he's wrong on that, but the rest of the specs and the things this phone will be able to do are awesome he said with the smart scroll and swipe features...can't wait!!!

Trust me, he didn't get to play with the s4, the first people who get to play with the devices are Samsung's own rep's and the rep for my region was telling me the other day they are getting their shipment of verizon branded s4's in another weekish. I'll believe him before i'll believe anybody else since he always show's us the devices before we get our own demo's
