UK Samsung Galaxy S3 Clove & Vodafone stock delay
We have more news covering the Samsung Galaxy S3 stock delay, it has been said a couple of days ago that this handset will release in the UK and the rest of Europe on May 29th, but this was a little shady until now.
On Saturday we reported that the SGS3 smartphone would release on the date mentioned above, and also covered a few details about the possible lack of stock for both Blue and White versions.
Well today we can report via Pocket-lint that customers who pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy S3 white 32GB and 16GB/32GB Pebble Blue versions may not get these handsets when they officially go on sale on May 30th. Pocket-lint was told via a Vodafone spokesman that it is unlikely that customers will get their phones on May 30th, Vodafone did however mention that they are working very hard and close with Samsung to make sure that these devices reach its customers as soon as possible, and yes they will be contacting then directly to let them know on the orders progress.
Apparently it could be around 2 to 4 weeks, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is the most pre-ordered device to date and it is unclear why there is a delay, there has been a few speculations that it could be something to do with the back cover of the pebble blue version, but not sure why about the white version.
We decided to look into this a little more and came across clove.co.uk; they have news about the Samsung Galaxy S3 stock and report that their information is correct as of today. The Samsung Galaxy S3 Marble White has been delayed and will start shipping on June 1 and not May 30, and the SGS3 Pebble Blue could see stock arrive by June 5 but this has yet to be confirmed. This means that Clove will not be able to deliver these smartphones as planned.
Please do let us know if you have pre-ordered your Samsung Galaxy S3?
