Verizon Galaxy S4 already shipping to customersVerizon Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphones will soon be on their way to shoppers who pre-ordered them.

The report comes from Droid Life: customers who pre-ordered the device through the carrier have begun to receive notifications that orders are being prepped for shipment.

The delivery date had previously been pushed to May 23, but it looks like the phone could reach customers sooner than expected.

The handset is expected to be available in Verizon retail stores around May 23.

Verizon’s price for Galaxy S4 16 GB model is $199.99. That’s with a two-year contract and after a mail-in rebate of $50.

The device is available in two color options: White Frost and Black Mist.

There’s no word on a 32 GB version of the Galaxy S4 on Verizon. AT&T is offering 32gb version now. They are, so far, the only US carrier offering that version.

Galaxy S4 owners also have the option to go for the newly released NFC stickers.

Verizon is the last of the major four carriers to ship Galaxy S4.
