Samsung unveiled its new flagship Galaxy S4 earlier this month, saying the device would be available in the U.S. in April. Wireless carrier AT&T (NYSE:T) today officially announced pricing and pre-orders of the South Korean company's latest smartphone.

AT&T will begin taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S4 on April 16 and will price the smartphone at $250 with a standard two-year contract. That's on the higher end of typical flagship pricing, which is normally $200 on contract. AT&T did not announce a specific launch date for retail availability.

Smaller rival T-Mobile said earlier this week at its "Un-carrier" event that it would launch the Galaxy S4 by May 1, but has not set exact pricing.
