AT&T clarifies Galaxy S4 price: Now it starts at $199.99

Preorders for the smartphone will begin on April 16, although the carrier has yet to provide a release date.

AT&T clarified the pricing on the Samsung Galaxy S4, adding that it would start as low as $199.99 with a two-year contract.

On its Web site, AT&T notes now that the 16-gigabyte version of the Galaxy S4 will cost $199.99, while the 32GB version will cost $249.99.

The company will begin taking preorders for the phone on April 16. The company hasn't provided a launch date yet.

AT&T previously told CNET that the $249.99 price tag was for the base model of the Galaxy S4.

Still, at $199.99, the 16GB Galaxy S4 falls a bit short (on a spec perspective) to the comparably priced HTC One, which comes with 32GB of built-in memory.

The Galaxy S4 is expected to be a monster seller when it hits stores. Samsung's flagship smartphone debuted with a huge amount of fanfare, and virtually every carrier will offer the phone.
