Samsung Galaxy S 4 AT&T, T-Mobile Verizon launch date leak

We know for sure that the Samsung Galaxy S 4 will be hitting AT&T, Cricket, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon, but if you ask any of those carriers when exactly they'll be launching the new device, they'd likely say that they'll share more details in the coming weeks. Thankfully, we've got leaks that can give us an idea of when Samsung's new flagship may arrive while we wait for the carriers to spill the (jelly) beans. The latest Galaxy S 4 leak that's made its way online is a new Staples document that comes to us from Engadget, and it's one that many AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon customers will likely be interested in.

This Staples training sheet outlines the store's Galaxy S 4 reservation process, and included in the document is a list dates on which the new Galaxy S handset may be available for purchase on three of the big four U.S. operators. The doc cautions that these dates are tentative, so anyone looking forward to the Galaxy S 4 will want to mark these dates on their calendars using pencil. According to the training sheet, AT&T will be bringing the S 4 to market on April 26. T-Mobile is expected to follow on May 1, a date that the magenta carrier has actually mentioned in the past, while Verizon could be the last of the trio to offer the S 4 with a May 30 launch.

The only official information that we've got on the Galaxy S 4's launch so far is that the device will begin rolling out globally sometime this quarter. Both AT&T and U.S. Cellular have said that they'll begin accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S 4 on April 16, though, and so it wouldn't be a surprise to see an actual launch go down shortly thereafter. As usual, nothing is official until the carriers make it so, but at least now customers on AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon have an idea of how much longer it'll be before they've got Samsung's new "Life Companion" in their pockets.
