Finally, Samsung USA’s official website has officially confirmed the existence of the Verizon branded Galaxy S4 handset. The company has built two separate pages on its official website — one for the white frost Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 model, and one for the black myst colored edition. You can clearly note that Verizon’s version is very much identical to other carrier variants in the US, except Verizon 4G LTE branding on back.
Good news is that there’s no Verizon 4G LTE branding on home button of the Verizon branded Galaxy S4 handset. So, you can stop worrying about that if you are planning to purchase the device from Big Red network.
If you need a specs refresher, here is the list of the specs of Galaxy S4:
# 5-inch Super AMOLED HD display with 1080p resolution
$ 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor
