The race of the carriers is now on for providing the latest smartphone from Samsung, the Galaxy S4, and each carrier wants to have exclusivity for trading this smartphone. But it’s not Australia’s case, because more than 4 carriers have already announced the availability of S4. And this is good for the customers as they will have the opportunity to choose the smartphone at the lowest price; life’s good when competition occurs.
Now, let’s put in the real data: Australia will embrace the Galaxy S4 in Q2, most probably at the end of May, with 4 carriers: Vodafone, Optus, Telestra and Virgin. Two of them actually started some sort of “sign-up” pages where potential customers will keep in touch with the exact date when the devices will be available and also what price plan they will have to follow in order to get their hands on the superphone. If you are interested on those pages, here they are: for Vodafone click here and for Optus click here.
We don’t know the price of the S4 yet, but if we take a look at the other pricing list of countries who gave more information, we could expect to see them at around $600 – $700 with no contract. But these are only speculations as nothing official is released yet.
As far as we know the device will be available with the 16GB of internal memory and the Octa-Core Exynos 5 1.6 GHz processor with 2 GB of RAM. But this could slightly change as they are not confirmed by any officials of the carriers. We’ll get you informed as soon as any other kind of information will pop-up for your region, and if you have some extra info, leave it in the comment section.
