Verizon confirms May launch for the Samsung Galaxy S4

Verizon confirms May launch for the Samsung Galaxy S4
Last weekend, a leaked document from Staples showed a tentative launch date of May 30th for the Samsung Galaxy S4 via Verizon. Considering that this is more than three weeks longer than the launch date for the same phone from some other carriers, Big Red customers were aghast with the idea that they would have to wait so long for the eagerly awaited device.

A tweet today from Verizon itself confirmed the May launch of the phone, although it did not reveal the specific day. T-Mobile has already announced that it will be releasing the phone online April 24th and in stores May 1st. AT&T has an April 30th release date and Sprint will launch the phone on April 27th.

Verizon's tweet means that the phone could conceivably launch on May 1st, but if the previously leaked information holds true, don't expect to see the Samsung Galaxy S4 at your local Verizon store until the end of next month. As we noted before, the carrier is known for rigorously testing its phones.
