It was originally rumored that the Galaxy S III would be available for purchase on May 29th. However after the official announcement was made retailers began announcing the sale of the S III on May 30th. Well the original date of the 29th may be true for some individuals as some UK retailers have made it known that those who pre-ordered Samsung‘s newest device will be getting it a day early.
Samsung UK announced today that customers who pre-ordered the S III at the Samsung store in London’s Westfield Stratford City will get their phone as early as 6pm (local time) May 29th. Worry not non-London dwellers because Samsung is allowing other retailers to hold their own early launch events but no earlier than 7pm that night. So if you’re wanting to snag this device hours before your friends you’ll have to check local listings of your favorite carrier store for information regarding its early release.
While the official unveiling was exciting in itself this announcement should get you just as excited. Getting Samsung’s latest and greatest a day earlier than most is always exciting. Otherwise the device will be available on the major UK networks a day later. Of course you’ll have to be on Vodafone UK’s network to snag the 32GB model. Here’s hoping you have a better first impression than we did!
