I’ve got my eye on you: Virgin Media to Stock Samsung Galaxy S4


-Pre-registration now live on
-Eye scrolling technology to turn heads for Virgin Media customers

London, UK – Virgin Media has announced that pre-registration for the newly unveiled Samsung Galaxy S4, the slimmest, fastest and most powerful member of the Samsung Galaxy has gone live on

The Samsung Galaxy S4 will offer never seen before features including Samsung Smart Pause and Samsung Smart Scroll which allow users to intuitively control their phone with their eyes and for entertainment fanatics, the Samsung Galaxy S4 offers a stunning 441ppi 5-inch screen and will even double up as an infrared remote control.

Graeme Oxby, Executive Director of Mobile & Home Phone at Virgin Media said: “We’re absolutely thrilled with the prospect of offering the Samsung Galaxy S4 – it’s an epic phone so we’ll be making some epic deals for our broadband and TiVo customers to match. Samsung devices like the Galaxy Ace II and Galaxy SIII have consistently topped our sales charts so we’re expecting the Galaxy S4 to go down a treat with Virgin Media customers.”

“The Galaxy S4 is far more then a bigger-screened, more powerful version of its predecessors, but has some genuinely head-turning features like eye scrolling technology which is why we’re urging smartphone fans to register online now so they don’t miss out when the Galaxy S4 hits the shelves. Even though the pricing is still to be confirmed, one thing we do know is that our broadband and TiVo customers who chose the Samsung Galaxy S4 will get plenty of extras including £5 off their monthly tariff and inclusive phone insurance.” Oxby added.
