Samsung has announced the latest Galaxy S4, and with the announcement speculations about the smartphone's arrival in the U.S. have started.
While people are still trying to figure out which all carriers will be carrying the successor of Samsung's Galaxy S3, a recent report have given two answers in one shot.
The fourth largest carrier of the U.S. announced during its 'UnCarrier' conference that Samsung Galaxy S4 would be available for its customers somewhere around May 1.
Although the price range has not been revealed so far, but T-Mobile customers who were planning to buy HTC One or thinking of changing the carrier have got a new choice now.
T-Mobile has been doing quite extensive work to improve its image and give a tough competition to other three major U.S. carriers - Verizon, AT&T and Sprint - for some time.
The company has also started expanding its LTE network, and in the beginning of this month it completed its LTE network in major cities like Las Vegas and Kansas City.
Meanwhile, T-Mobile also announced that it is going to carry some newly released devices from major brands like HTC and BlackBerry.
The company is going to carry HTC's HTC One and BlackBerry's BlackBerry Z10 heandsets. There were reports that T-Mobile will also launch the LTE version of Samsung Galaxy S3, but so far only three LTE devices on T-Mobile network seem to be coming.
Apple's iPhone 5 is also going to be available on T-Mobile's upgraded network from April 12. According to a Redmond Pie report, the customers of iPhone 5 over T-Mobile will not be stuck to its plan as the company has spread out a nicely planned strategy for its new customers.
"A couple of years back, carriers across the world decided twelve month contracts were not enough, and now the vast majority of agreements stretch over two years. But T-Mobile, sensing the general feeling of angst among the consumer market, will allow buyers the option to pay for the device outright, or spread the cost over 24 months. This means that the 16GB iPhone 5 will cost $99 initially, and $20/month over 24 months, while the iPhone 4S will cost $69.99 and the iPhone 4 $14.99 - both with that $20 monthly cost," the report states.
