Android enthusiasts in UK who are eager to get their hands on Samsung’s latest flagship device Galaxy S4 need not wait any longer as they can now pre-order through various online retailers and wireless carriers. This will ensure that they will have the Samsung Galaxy S4 in their hands on April 26, the official release date.
Most notable amongst the retailers is Carphone Warehouse, which is enticing customers with a special offer in which the first 2,000 customers pre-ordering Galaxy S4 online will get a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) and an accessory bundle including a case and screen protector.
“When the handset launches on 26 April we’re expecting our stores to be busier than at the height of the Christmas period, not least because we’ve got the widest range of networks available in the UK ensuring the best deals. We are planning to extend opening hours at our larger sites to cope with customer demand for the Samsung Galaxy S4”, said Graham Stapleton, Chief Operating Officer at Carphone Warehouse.
