The Galaxy S4 is upon us. AT&T and US Cellular launched their respective pre-order pages just yesterday, and now Sprint and T-Mobile have announced official release date and pricing info.
The Now network will begin offering The Next Big Thing on April 27th for the expected price of $250 with a two-year agreement. However, if you're willing to ditch your current provider and port your number to Sprint, you'll get another hundred-spot off, bringing the price down to $150. Not bad. You'll be able to pre-order the device directly from Sprint beginning tomorrow.
Speaking of paying $150 for Samsung's newest flagship, that's how much you'll have to throw down for a down payment if you want the device on T-Mobile.

When it comes to pushing Jelly Bean to devices, Samsung wants us to know that it hasn't forgotten about any of its current-gen devices. Take today's update for example – do you remember the Galaxy Victory? Didn't think so. Still, Samsung and Sprint are sending the 4.1.2 update over-the-air right now.
The update brings several features to the less-than-memorable handset:
Jelly Bean offers users stunning graphical capabilities with expanded feature functionality, including:
- Google Now™
- Expandable, actionable notifications
- Android Beam™ now lets you send photos and more.
- Widgets work like magic as you place widgets on the screen, everything else automatically moves to make room; when they're too big, widgets resize on their own.
