Earlier today we reported that T-Mobile Galaxy S4 had been delayed till April 29 and that Sprint too had announced Galaxy S4 delay. Both of these carriers will begin online sales first, there’s no word as yet when the device will reach their retail stores. Now Samsung has issued an official statement explaining that Galaxy S4 supplies are constrained because of the huge global demand. The company says that initial demand may be limited though it hopes to fulfill demands in the coming weeks.

We’ve normally seen supplies of Apple products being constrained as the Cupertino outfit depends upon various companies for components. Samsung manufactures most of the components that it uses in its products in-house, so it is a bit odd to hear that they don’t have enough supply to meet the demand. It is also unusual because even in the past Samsung has had enough supplies, the Galaxy S4 is not their first hit smartphone, they’ve seen unprecedented demands before too so why the constrains now? Whatever the case maybe, at least they won’t be facing delays like the HTC one did.
