Verizon drops Samsung Galaxy S3 price to just $99, Galaxy S4 announcement coming soon?

Samsung Galaxy S3 unboxed

While we haven’t heard an official Samsung Galaxy S4 release date yet, Verizon Wireless will probably begin offering the smartphone sometime in the near future, that means a price drop for the Galaxy S3 was bound to happen soon. Well, as of yesterday, the wait for a Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy S3 price drop is officially over. Verizon has lowered their price for the 16GB version of the Galaxy S3 to just $99 with a new two-year agreement.

We loved the Samsung Galaxy S III when we had the opportunity to review it last year. In fact, we picked it as the best Verizon Wireless smartphone of 2012. $99 is a very good price for last year’s best smartphone, and the Galaxy S III still offers great hardware and a bunch of unique and useful software features. For the price, I don’t think you’ll find a better smartphone on Verizon’s network.

Verizon hasn’t announced when we will see the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch on their network, but this week’s S3 price drop leads us to believe that we might get some more information soon. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more about Verizon’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S4.
