Mobile providers are now taking pre-orders
TORONTO—Samsung’s next flagship phone, the Galaxy S4, will hit Canada as early as April 27. Mobile providers are now taking pre-orders for the new five-inch smartphone, Samsung’s rival to Apple’s iPhone.
Those who pre-order a phone in advance, for about $200 on a three-year contract or $700 without a contract, should get it by the end of the month. The phone is then expected to go on sale on May 3.
Samsung is highlighting a slew of software features as the main differentiators for its latest Galaxy phone, including a bolstered photo app and gestures that allow the device to be controlled without touching the screen.
