So says Phones 4u which has confirmed that it will be offering its customers the new Galaxy S4 from 26th April.
I can't imagine that other retailers will get the phone earlier. So there is your date.
Scott Hooton, Chief Commercial Officer at Phones 4u, comments: 'The anticipation surrounding the next Samsung Galaxy device has been astounding and it has already received the most pre-registrations at Phones 4u of any other smartphone launch in 2013, as well as a 40% increase on pre-registrations for the Galaxy SIII in the first 48 hours. We know from YouGov research that 46% of smartphone owners in the UK are considering getting a Samsung smartphone next, and so we're predicting that the Galaxy S 4 could be in with a strong chance of becoming the biggest selling smartphone of 2013'.
