AT&T says it will start taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 in a couple of weeks.
It's the season's most eagerly awaited smartphone and you can put your order in on April 16.
The new Samsung Galaxy will sell for $250, 50 bucks more than the usual introductory price for high-end smartphones.
AT&T didn't say when the phone will go on sale in stores, or when the pre-orders will be delivered. But pre-orders usually start a week or two before deliveries.
The S 4 is the successor to the Galaxy S III, which has been the biggest competitor to Apple's iPhone. AT&T is the first U.S. carrier to announce a price and pre-order date.
The Galaxy S 4 comes with a slightly bigger screen, a larger battery and a faster processor.
