In the wake of the recent Samsung Galaxy S4 unveiling, online retailer Unlocked Mobiles has revealed the Samsung Galaxy S4 price with the handset to set wannabe owners back a hefty £530.

With a Samsung Galaxy S4 UK release date confirmed for April 26, Unlocked Mobile has become the first to reveal the potential Samsung Galaxy S4 price, listing the 5-inch handset on a SIM-free basis for a not inconsiderable £529.98.

Whilst offering pricing details on the 16GB Samsung Galaxy S4, a price that although expensive is fitting with the handset’s high-end flagship billing, the online retailer has as yet failed to offer any indication of how much the device’s 32GB and 64GB storage option siblings will cost.

Available to pre-order now, Unlocked Mobile has listed the eagerly awaited iPhone 5 and HTC One rival ahead the upcoming April 26 Samsung Galaxy S4 UK release date.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Specs

Formally unveiled at a dedicated launch event in New York City last week, the Samsung Galaxy S4 specs sheet sees a high-end collection of innards paired with a raft of new and innovative software features such as Dual Camera shooting and Smart Pause eye-tracking capabilities.

With an eight-core processor set to run the show on the UK-bound Samsung Galaxy S4, a CPU that pairs four big cores for the grunt work with four power saving smaller cores, the Samsung Galaxy S4 specs sheet is further bolstered by a new 5-inch Super AMOLED HD display with a 1920 x 1080p Full HD resolution and stunning 441 pixels-per-inch image density.

Adding a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera alongside a second, 2-megapixel forward-facing snapper, the Samsung Galaxy S4 further benefits from 2GB of RAM and microSD card storage expansion. Lining up at a mere 7.9mm thick and just 130g in weight, the Samsung Galaxy S4, which features a design similar to that of its Samsung Galaxy S3 predecessor, also features a hefty 2,600mAh battery.

Set to be made available in Black Mist and White Frost colour schemes, the Samsung Galaxy S4 will see its connectivity options completed by the usual integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 options, as well as inbuilt NFC and 4G capabilities.

So it's the same price for the 16GB version as for the 32GB HTC One?

The samsung has expandable storage and the htc one doesnt, I think it balances out on that fact really.

But you have to pay for the expandable storage on top of the initial purchase price, although a 16GB micro-SD card isn't going to break the bank. But it does make the S4 more expensive. Seems surprising.

I would expect retailers to do bundle deals with a card included so it will end up balancing out.
Interesting that Samsung's share price has dropped following the product launch, guess the tech analysts were disappointed.

*Long* gone are the days of me shelling out that much cash for a flipping phone, any phone.

The Nexus 4 has permanently altered the landscape of value perception in the mobile market. (which I've always argued hardware was massively over-priced) Is this gadget worth paying £251 *more* than a Nexus 4. Does it give you an extra £251 worth of features & hardware? For me, it's a resounding 'no'. There's plenty of better things to spend the money on.

Don't get me wrong, i'm not a big fan of the N4, but I do appreciate realistic prices and a use of non plastics. Yes, fundamentally the market will decide. But that doesn't stop the market being, er, misguided!
