AT&T was the only carrier in the U.S. to offer the Garnet Red version of the Samsung Galaxy S III last year, and it looks like the operator has gotten itself a similar deal for the Galaxy S 4. AT&T just announced that it plans to launch an exclusive Red Aurora version of the 16GB Samsung Galaxy S 4 on June 16, with pricing set at $199.99 with a two-year contract. Interested customers will be able to pre-order the red Galaxy S 4 from AT&T starting on May 24.
Samsung revealed last night that it will release the Galaxy S 4 in Blue Arctic, Red Aurora, Purple Mirage and Brown Autumn. So far, NTT DoCoMo and AT&T have announced plans to offer the blue and red models, but it's not clear which carriers might offer the purple and brown variants. We saw Sprint and Verizon sell purple and brown versions of the Galaxy S III, so those two carriers could end up offering the Purple Mirage and Brown Autumn Galaxy S 4 units, but we'll just have to wait to find out for sure. Do you plan on waiting for one of these new Galaxy S 4 colors to be released before you buy Samsung's new flagship? Or will you be snagging the currently-available Black Mist or White Frost version?
