Samsung Galaxy S4 Delayed At A Few Canadian Carriers: Are You Affected?

The much-awaited Samsung Galaxy S4 has already started reaching customers globally but it seems that some Canadian carriers are struggling to keep pace with the high demand of the handset. Canadian carriers Mobilicity and WIND Mobile have urged its customers to "just wait a bit longer" for the Galaxy S4.

"Due to overwhelming demand for the S4, shipments have been temporarily delayed and we expect it to arrive by early next week. Stay tuned!" tweeted Mobilicity.

WIND Mobile sent an email to its customers which said "just a little bit longer for the new Samsung Galaxy S4. We're sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but due to unforeseen circumstances there has been a delay with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4."

Previously, Samsung also released a statement which said that initial supply of the handset may be limited "due to overwhelming global demand of Galaxy S4."

"The Samsung GALAXY S 4 will be available Q2 in Canada from Bell, Eastlink, Fido, Koodo, Mobilicity, Rogers, SaskTel, TELUS, Videotron, Virgin Mobile and Wind Mobile and their authorized channels. Further details will be released closer to Canadian availability," stated Samsung Canada.

The only carrier missing from the list is MTS in Manitoba. Samsung announced that the Galaxy S4 will come in both 3G and 4G LTE-ready versions. Depending on your region, you can expect Samsung's next flagship to sport a 1.6GHz Exynos octa-core CPU or a 1.9GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600. Just like the U.S. version of the handset, the Canadian version also has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor.

Currently, the Galaxy S4 is undoubtedly the most wanted Android smartphone. Many smartphone enthusiasts are keenly waiting to lay their hands on the handset and a delay in the shipments will definitely cause disappointment.
