Monday a spokesperson for AT&T confirmed that all customers who pre-ordered their 16 GB Samsung Galaxy S4 before 9 a.m. ET on Monday could receive the smartphone as soon as April 25.
Last week, AT&T started taking orders for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and ensured customers the delivery of Samsung’s newest smartphone by the end of April in an attempt to squash their competition.
For those customers who haven’t pre-ordered the device, they should be able to get it earlier than previously anticipated. According to a spokesperson for AT&T customers can purchase the 16 GB Samsung Galaxy S4 at AT&T stores starting April 27.
A reader of CNET sent the Company an email they received from AT&T confirming the information:
"Thank you for ordering the Samsung Galaxy S4 from AT&T," the e-mail reads. "We are excited to announce that we are able to ship devices earlier than originally expected. Customers who pre-ordered their smartphone early can begin receiving it as soon as April 25th."
