Will it be a world phone or is it CDMA only?? I would really like a high end sprint phone with GSM capabilities so that i can travel to europe with it.

UPDATE: The answer is yes, it will indeed be a global phone, according to the FCC

I have been with Sprint for a very long time, and since Sprint is the top seller of the S3, I hope that means that the S4 will be coming to Sprint before the other carriers.  Come on Sprint!  Let us pre order the S4 ASAP!!!!

if you pull up the release dates for the past samsung S phones you can usually get a rough guess on when they will probably release it.

if you look at the HTC phones they usually kicked out in june-july if im remembering right..it was one of the months with a J in it lol..but its always been in that same month with the last 4 phones they kicked out.

Thanks fireguy

It looks to me like the S2 was released on Sprint 9/20/11 and the S3 was released on 7/1/12. I think the Galaxy is on its own timeframe!

Looks like AT&T is starting pre-orders on April 16th with delivery on May 1st, just like T-Mobile. I wonder if that means Sprint will be releasing the S4 on May 1st too?  Since Sprint was the best seller of S3's you would think that Sprint would have it first.

Looks like Verizon is about to join T-Mobile and AT&T in announcing their S4 release.  Sprint-- are you really going to be the last one to announce?  Come on!!!! Get ahead of the game!!

The HTC one is not a global phone. It will be sold by sprint with only CDMA bands, no GSM.
