This afternoon, Telecom NZ have confirmed the Samsung Galaxy S4 will launch late April and be available to purchase outright for $1149. Preorders begin immediately.
The Galaxy S4 is expected to be Samsung's biggest selling device yet - following from the Galaxy SIII which has sold some 40-million units globally. The S4 has been dubbed as the 'Life Companion' by the Samsung marketing team. And in some ways that's exactly what devices such as the S4 are becoming.
Telecom's Chief Marketing Officer, Jason Paris indicated that there was a huge amount of interest in the new Samsung Galaxy S4 "This phone has some very exciting features, and we know our customers are looking forward to putting it through its paces on our Smartphone Network. We wanted them to be at the front of the queue when the phone is released in New Zealand - and so we are opening for pre-orders early."
The Galaxy S4 will also be available for $0 upfront on Telecom's 24-month $139 smartphone plan (which equates to $3336 over 2-years).
Telecom advise that by customers who pre-order at www.telecom.co.nz/galaxysivpreorder will be able to pick-up their new Galaxy S4 from selected Telecom stores on the day of launch, or have the device delivered.
