The next device in the Galaxy range, expected to be the Samsung Galaxy S4, will be supported by the UK’s mobile operators when it’s announced on Thursday.
Three, Orange, T-Mobile and EE have all confirmed they will be offering the device.
EE, which is an amalgamation of Orange and T-Mobile in the UK, said it will be offering the handset across all three of its networks and has already got a ‘register your interest’ page live for customers wanting to be kept up to date on the handset’s progress.
Similarly, the Three network has also confirmed that it will be offering the device on its all-you-can-eat data packages.
Vodafone is the only UK network not to have confirmed that it will be offering the handset. A spokesman for the company told ZDNet on Wednesday that “Samsung hasn’t officially announced anything as yet. But we sell a range of the best phones on the market.” However, Vodafone has a page on its site which allows consumers to register their details to be kept “updated on everything about the next Galaxy”, suggesting it, too, will be offering the device.
None of the networks would give any indication of pricing, nor did they refer to the handset by name, opting only for “the next Galaxy” instead.
While none of the specs of the device have been officially revealed by Samsung, there have been a number of leaks suggesting that it will have an 8-core processor, 13-megapixel camera, and a five-inch low-power display.
It has also been suggested that Samsung will continue along the lines of its gesture features and introduce eye-tracking technology that automatically scrolls down or up the screen while reading.
The device is set to be unveiled in New York on Thursday.
