KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung's latest Galaxy S4 variants, the Galaxy S4 Zoom and Galaxy S4 Active smartphones have gone up for preorder at Carphone Warehouse.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, which we got some hands-on time with at Samsung's Galaxy and Ativ Premiere event on Thursday, is a bit more expensive that we had hoped. Despite the Galaxy S4 Zoom featuring mid-range specifications aside from its 16MP camera, Carphone Warehouse is offering the phone from £33 a month. This Vodafone tariff includes a free handset, 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data.
The handset can also be ordered on tariffs with O2, Orange, T-Mobile, Talktalk and Three, and will start shipping on 9 July.
Samsung's rugged Galaxy S4 variant, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is also available on the same £33 Vodafone tariff ahead of its release on 1 July. However, for those looking for more than 500MB of monthly data, the cheapest contract is priced at £37 a month, complete with unlimited minutes and texts.
Unlike the Galaxy S4 Zoom, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active can also be picked up on a contract with EE, thanks to its support for 4G LTE. The cheapest EE tariff costs £41 a month, complete with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of data.
Carphone Warehouse has also put the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini up for preorder, following in the footsteps of Orange and T-Mobile. This handset is available from £26 a month, and will start shipping on 1 July.
Samsung's latest Galaxy S4 variants arrive amid rumours that the original Samsung Galaxy S4 hasn't been selling too well. Samsung reportedly has scaled back production of its flagship Android smartphone, despite denying rumours that the handset isn't selling well. µ
