Blue Samsung Galaxy S3 UK release date 22nd June

Long-awaited blue Galaxy S3 to get UK general release in just a few weeks

The Samsung Galaxy S3 launch marked the first true rival for the upcoming Apple iPhone 5 however its launch was not without a few hitches

The blue Samsung Galaxy S3 now has a general UK release date of the 22nd June according to Samsung's flagship store. The delay of the blue handset was revealed just a few weeks after the Android Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone had its launch.

Those who pre-ordered the Pebble Blue Galaxy S3 will be getting theirs through the post soon after it was revealed to The Inquirer that the long-awaited handsets had started to be sent out with limited numbers heading to stores in a few weeks.

While this means good news for Android fans in the UK, those in the US are facing a slightly more worrying situation where Apple has sought a Galaxy S3 ban.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Specs:

Officially launched earlier this month the Samsung Galaxy S3 is larger than its predecessor the Samsung Galaxy S2, with a colossal 4.8-inch HD Screen giving you 720p resolution on a smartphone.

Big, bold and beautiful, the new Samsung Galaxy comes running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on a stunning 4.8-inch AMOLED screen, and boasts a 1.4GHz Exynos 4 quad-core processor and an 8-megapixel rear-mounted snapper.
