Best Buy Offering Exclusive Arctic Blue Galaxy S4 for AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint Starting Nov. 14

Blue Arctic Galaxy S4

Beginning November 14, Best Buy will begin to offer an exclusive Blue Arctic Galaxy S4 from Samsung, for three of the four major U.S. carriers. Customers on Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint can pick up this new colorway for an unknown price, but you can expect it to be in the $199+ on contract range. Besides the color, it’s the same exact GS4 that we have known for months now. 

Pre-orders for the Blue Arctic variant will begin tomorrow on Friday, November 8 through Best Buy’s online store. Once the 14th hits though, you can pick up the device in any Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile location throughout the country.

The Galaxy S4 launched from Samsung in two colors; white and black. If Arctic Blue would have been an option, we’d have jumped on that. It’s pretty and sparkly, don’t you think?

  • Instead of buying Galaxy S4 I will buy Galaxy Note 3. Google Nexus 5 is also a good chice too. !

    Too bad these blue devices are released 4 months or so after these phones are relevant.

    No one is saying it? Stop copying the Blue HTC One.

      Ever think that Best Buy requests their phone editions to be in blue? That they specifically requested a blue HTC One to sell and now a blue S4? Might have something to do with Best Buy’s branding. You know, like how they use a lot of blue on their website, their employees wear blue shirts, how their signs are blue, etc. Plus it’s a way to get customer’s to buy an edition from them. For the specific color. Might just be Best Buy asking for it and not the phone manufacturers copying one another…

  • who honestly would buy the s4 when theres the G2, N5, Note 3…

      Yeah who the hell likes a removable battery with an option of expandable storage. OVERRATED!

      • HarvesterX

        No one with a G2 needs a removable battery (dissembly guide is out if you need to ever replace one)….removable storage? Nah don’t keep giant media files on when not using. OTG works fine for. But yes, sdcards can be of great use.

    it looks pretty nice.

    the Best Buy Blue exclusive colors are nice. I said it in a prior post, the Vivid Blue HTC One is a very vibrant color especially on that Metal frame. Its a thing of beauty. i could only guess this is the same type of “best buy blue” just named according to Samsung.

  • The only Galaxy S4 I care about is the one sold here: https://play.google.com/store/devices/details?id=samsung_galaxy_s4

    The problem is that this will come with the newer firmware out of the box that doesn’t allow you to bypass the bootloader and install a custom recovery. You will be stuck with using Safestrap and only stock based ROMs… Makes the S4 lose some of it’s appeal IMO… So glad I was able to Loki and use custom kernels… 🙂
