Some network providers have already created a wait list for those who want to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S IV in a bid to be the first to offer the most anticipated smartphone of the year. Some of those that are in the US are EE, Orange, Three and T-Mo. Interestingly, the Galaxy S IV is said to be LTE-enabled, immediately hinting at one variant.


It seems that the Samsung Galaxy S IV is indeed in the running for making its 100M sales mark, with the kind of reception that network providers from all over the world have shown. It is said to feature an octa-core, which was later on down played by a report from SammyHub showing benchmark photos of the device.


The Galaxy S IV will be introduced in a few hours in Times Squre NY, which is a decidedly Apple bastion.

The developers are advised to get ready because Samsung on the company's open source repository has started unleashing onslaught of kernel source of Galaxy S4. It has done so beginning with the unlocked phone editions (GT-I9505 and GT-I9500) and some other variant (SGH-I337M) which is targeted to Virgin Mobile Canada. In case you may not be are, the difference between GT-19505 and GT-19500 is the chipset.19500 is the Galaxy S4 edition which is Exynos Octa-powered but there is not official date of release which is attached to it. 19505 is the variant of Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 which will be available for purchase in most of the major markets of the world before end of the month. SGH-I337M is the version of Virgin Mobile Canada.


For those in the United States, there will not benefit from any of these developments because all S4 carrier branded versions in America have their unique and separate releases of kernel source and all will run different builds of software.
