verizons4The US smartphone market will heat up shortly with the release of Samsung’s next flagship Galaxy smartphone.

The Galaxy S4 is widely anticipated and although it’ll feature a much smaller (comparative) screen size compared with the Galaxy Mega, it’ll be the performance phone, powered by Qualcomm’s super-quick Snapdragon 600 APQ8064 quad-core processor.

So far, most of the US telcos have either made or leaked announcements about availability of the latest Samsung smartphone. Here are the dates we know:

* Sprint – April 27
* T-Mobile – April 24
* Verizon – ‘May’

In Australia, Samsung is having an official press launch for the S4 on April 23, although the only official statement so far is that yes, the phone is coming to Australia and will include the Snapdragon 600 quad-core CPU and have 4G/LTE connectivity.

According to its statement, the majority of LTE Galaxy S4 phones will include 4G/LTE whereas 3G versions will include Samsung’s own Exynos processor.
