Today, Samsung did much more than just officially announce the existence of the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3. The South Korean mobile giant also took the time to update prospective Galaxy S4 smartphone owners from around the world with info on their much-awaited handheld device’s availability.
According to Samsung, the Galaxy S4 is now slated to roll out in a total of 60 countries worldwide, and will be released in even more locations throughout the second quarter of this year. For now, the list of countries wherein the Samsung Galaxy S4 will first become available includes the Britain, France, Germany, and the United States.
A report from the English-language Yonhap News Agency of South Korea web site reveals that Samsung’s plans to roll out the Galaxy S4 in more places throughout Q2 2013 involves working with over 300 operators such as AT&T, Vodafone, and Telefonica among many others in a total of 155 countries. All of this will surely help make the company gain an even bigger chunk of the smartphone market than it already has.
Only last week, the company announced that it had scored an operating profit of nearly $8 billion USD, owing to the success of its popular Galaxy smartphone range. The number reported easily exceeded the company’s own profit forecast for the first quarter of this year, and if things keep up, it is likely that it will beat its profit forecast yet again for the next three months.
