The Galaxy S4 smartphone will arrive on all four major carriers in the U.S. in the coming weeks. AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile announced availability earlier this month, however Verizon has remained mum on its plans to offer the device. The carrier finally announced on Wednesday that preorders for the smartphone will begin on Thursday, April 25th starting at $249.99 before a $50 mail-in rebate. The Galaxy S4 is equipped with a 5-inch full HD display, a 1.9GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor and a 13-megapixel camera. The handset also features 2GB of RAM, up to 64GB of internal storage, NFC, a microSD slot and Android 4.2.2. Samsung’s flagship smartphone will be available from AT&T and Sprint on April 27th, and from T-Mobile on April 29th. Verizon has not yet announced a release date for the phone.

UPDATE: According to Phone Scoop, the phone will be available in Verizon Wireless stores beginning May 30th. A Verizon Wireless spokesperson subsequently confirmed the launch date.

An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that the phone would cost $249.99 after the $50 mail-in rebate. It has been updated to reflect the proper starting price.
