Galaxy S4 specs leak showing they’re poised for a big launch

The date is growing closer and closer for when Samsung will take the stage in New York City and announce "The Next Galaxy" which of course will be their new flagship Galaxy S4. This week we are starting to see even more rumors, leaks, details, and reports claiming what the next device will be all about. Either way, this looks to be the biggest launch in Samsung's history.

T-Mobile HTC One S available now

The wait is over, T-Mobile customers - you can finally grab an HTC One S of your very own. As promised, the carrier has made its new flagship available today, though it doesn't look like the phone has landed on its customer-facing website just yet. If you just can't wait a few hours, head down to your local T-Mobile retail store, and bask in the glory of being one of the first in the US to get a hold of an HTC One-series phone.

HTC One S units arrive at T-Mobile – launch date impending

The HTC One S is headed to T-Mobile and will be one awesome smartphone for this summer. Sadly they've been completely quite regarding any official launch date of the new flagship phone. While we still wait for T-Mobile to confirm a date we are now starting to see dummy units arriving in T-Mobile stores, along with advertisements. April 25th could still be the day.

T-Mobile gives the HTC One S a launch party on April 18th

T-Mobile customers have been waiting for months to get their hands on the HTC One S, and while the carrier has yet to officially set a date for the svelte Android 4.0 smartphone, it looks like it's getting pretty close. After rumors of a late April launch, T-Mobile has sent out press invitations to a launch party on April 18th, precisely one week from today. That would certainly seem to imply that they're ready to start up a marketing campaign, if nothing else. There's no verification on the actual launch date, but sometime the following week seems likely. The last we heard, T-Mobile's internal systems pegged the phone for release on April 25th, the Wednesday following the launch event. With press info sent out, it seems to be a done deal, so start saving your pennies. There's been no official word on a price either, but given their current lineup, I'd bet on $249 with a two-year contract. T-Mobile's still using HSPA+ technology for its network, so the the American version of the phone should be almost identical to its European counterpart, which we reviewed last week. And by the way T-Mobile users, if you've been waiting for a next-generation phone with a subsidy, this is it. Never mind the slim aluminum chassis or the 8 megapixel camera. Never mind the Snapdragon S4 processor, which (at least in some tests) beats the Tegra 3 quad-core with a stick. Never mind the 4.3-inch display. No, the real draw is Ice Cream Sandwich, and the One S will be HTC's first US phone to get the updated software at launch, along with Sense 4.0. It's about time. Also, attendees of the launch party will be serenaded by "Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.", which is apparently a pop band and not the unborn progeny of a NASCAR driver. You live and learn.
