Samsung Galaxy S3 'most popular phone of the year'

Ahead of next week's official Samsung Galaxy S3 UK release date, retailer Carphone Warehouse has branded the handset the 'phone of the year'

 

Following its official unveiling earlier this month, the Samsung Galaxy S3 has risen to become the ‘most popular phone of the year’ as pre-order figures catapult the handset to iPhone rivalling stardom.

Whilst Samsung has yet to release official pre-order figures for its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich touting Galaxy S2 follow-on, retailer Carphone Warehouse has suggested pre-release demand for the handset has been unrivalled, marking the device out as a true smartphone leader.

"Pre-order demand for the new Galaxy S3 has surpassed expectations since the handset was first unveiled two weeks ago. The first 24 hours alone saw thousands placing their pre-order at Carphone Warehouse,” the company’s Chief Commercial Officer, Graham Stapleton, said.

With the Samsung Galaxy S3 set to hit stores next week, new reports have suggested that more than 9 million of the 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display touting handsets have been shifted with consumers and networks eager to tout the 8-megapixel camera and 1080p Full HD video recording capable HTC One X rival.

Sporting a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, the Samsung Galaxy S3, which is available in blue and white forms, is set to hit stores across the UK on May 30th with advanced orders available for collection hours earlier with select retailers offering the Android device from 7pm on the 29th.
