Samsung's long-awaited Galaxy S4 has finally gone up for UK pre-order following its March 14 unveiling. The phone, due to be released next month, is now available for pre-order through Three UK, O2, Vodafone, EE, T-Mobile, and Orange. Vodafone and Three announced pre-order plans today, while retailers Phones 4u and Carphone Warehouse are offering the device on a range of different networks including EE, T-Mobile, O2, and Orange.
The Galaxy S4 is the follow on to Samsung's hugely successful Galaxy S3 and is the next in its Galaxy line of flagship smartphones. The S4 will pack a 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED PenTile display, either a 1.9GHz quad-core processor or a 1.6GHz octa-core processor (depending on the region you're buying the device), 2GB of RAM, 13-megapixel camera, a 2-megapixel camera up front, 16GB or 32GB of storage, and a 2,600mAh battery.
The Galaxy S4 is set to launch in the UK on April 26 and will feature a 1.9GHz quad-core processor as opposed the octa-core processor Samsung talked about during its announcement event. Samsung hasn't yet offered a reason as to why the UK (and other markets) will get a lower-powered S4. Still, it's not as though a quad-core CPU in your phone is anything to sniff at, is it?
Though the S4 has yet to be released, there are already reports doing the rounds of a lower-powered, cheaper Galaxy S4 Mini. Rumors point to a 1.6 GHz dual core processor as well as a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED qHD display with a resolution on 960x540 pixels (256 ppi).
