Samsung just officially introduced the GALAXY S4 to the world here in New York City, and right off the bat the company is talking about all of its new features. They've also revealed details about the phone's availability, as well as the carriers that will carry the phone once it's out.

The GALAXY S4 will be available sometime toward the end of April, and will be supported by 327 mobile carriers in 155 different countries. The phone will be available in 3G and 4G LTE in multiple bands. Samsung president JK Shin says that the phone supports all frequencies and standards, and there's even global roaming on LTE.

We should hear more information about which carriers will get the GALAXY S4 and when the phone will be available. Pricing details are also another topic that hasn't come up yet, but we're guessing the carriers will decide on their own how much they'll sell the phone for, and when it'll be available.

UPDATE: We've heard word from both AT&T and T-Mobile about the GALAXY S 4. T-Mobile will carry the phone, but they haven't yet announced any details except for a sign-up page where you can enter in your email address for more details when they arrive. As for AT&T, they too have a landing page for the new phone, but no details yet.

As for the device itself, it has a 5-inch 1080p display and weighs just 130 grams. As expected, the phone will come in both black and white variants, with a silver band outlining both of the devices. The phone has Bluetooth 4.0 and even an IR blaster just like in the HTC One. It's also packing 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera, and up to 64GB of storage. We'll be updating as we hear more info about availability and carriers.
