AT&T (T) saw a fair amount of consumer backlash following its recent announcement that Samsung’s Galaxy S4 would start at $249.99, so the carrier has seemingly had a change of heart. When the announcement was first made, AT&T was careful to avoid mentioning the amount of storage its $250 Galaxy S4 would ship with, and now it has confirmed in a blog post that the 32GB version will be the handset that costs $249.99 while the 16GB model will cost a customary $199.99 on contract. Samsung’s (005930) Galaxy S4 features a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, a quad-core Snapdragon processor (U.S. model), up to 64GB of storage, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. AT&T subscribers will be able to preorder the Galaxy S4 beginning on April 16th.
