Samsung Confirms UK Release Date for Galaxy S4

Samsung last night put us out of our misery and unveiled the next iteration of its Galaxy smartphone, the Galaxy S4. Set for launch in Q2 globally, we weren't holding our breath for a precise UK release date. That said, it seems we've gotten one anyway!

 

According to Pocket-Lint, the Galaxy S4 will launch on April 26 at the Samsung Experience Store at Westfield Stratford City and all other major operators. As we reported earlier, Three, EE, T-Mobile, and Orange will all stock the device, as well as third-party retailers like Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4u. No word on pricing just yet, but we'll keep you posted.

As far as specs are concerned, previous rumors were pretty spot on. The Galaxy S4 will pack a 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED PenTile display, either an Exynos 5 or Snapdragon (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.

    either an Exynos 5 or Snapdragon (depending on the region you're buying the device)

    I can't describe how much I hate that region-dependent hardware. WHY?! Why can't you just make ONE version - or at least sell both versions in all regions? >_

    So, it's either going to be a Nexus 4 with an octa-core, or a vanilla Nexus 4, with the only difference that Samsung has tampered with the OS and it's going to be unsupported and obsolete earlier.
    Let's talk about price, then.
