That's a week earlier than the previously confirmed release date of May 30.
"The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available for purchase online and in Verizon Wireless Stores starting May 23," read an update posted to Verizon's news center this morning.
However, the Galaxy S4's $200 price tag with a two-year contract remains the same.
Supply blues and release news
The Galaxy S4's original release date of May 30 on Verizon first surfaced in mid-April when an alleged Staples memo revealed several key dates for the device.
Samsung appeared to be entering troubled waters, though, when supply issues were rumored to be causing Galaxy S4 delays toward the end of April.

Those delays don't seem to have affected Verizon, and if the carrier's newly bumped up release date holds true, then it will be a mere 10 days until Verizon users can get their hands on the Galaxy S4.
