According to an update on Verizon's news page, the Galaxy S4 will now be available in Verizon stores on May 23.
The Verizon version of the Galaxy S4 is rumored to support international roaming.
According to an Android Authority report, "An FCC filing for the SCH-I545, which is most likely the model number for Verizon's Galaxy S4 considering that SCH-I535 is the model number for Verizon's current Galaxy S3, says the device will support the 700MHz LTE band (Band 13) right alongside Verizon's 1700MHz AWS frequencies (Band 4)."
The FCC filing also reveals the device number SPH-L720 that is supposed to be the Galaxy S4 device for Sprint as the Galaxy S3 device on the same carrier carries the number SPH-L710. The Galaxy S4 for Sprint is also said to be coming with CDMA, LTE, GSM and WCDMA 850/1900 support.
The Galaxy S 4 introduces new photo features like Dual Shot, paired with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera to take professional looking photographs. Dual Shot allows the use of both the rear and front facing cameras at the same time and lets phone users to include themselves in pictures or videos.
The Galaxy S 4 is Global Ready and can travel overseas with anyone, but the software may make it an essential item for the world traveler. S TranslatorTM operates as a multilingual pocket dictionary native to the phone, translating words and phrases when typed or spoken into the app.
