Samsung Galaxy S3 on sale ahead of official launch

New reports suggest Dubai based retailers have begun offering the S3 prematurely

Hitting the UK next week, the recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy S3 handset has begun hitting stores in Dubai as the Android handset goes on sale

With a week to go until the official Samsung Galaxy S3 UK release date, new reports have suggested the Android 4.0 handset has prematurely been made available for purchase in Dubai.

Whilst currently unconfirmed, recent reports have suggested a number of Dubai based Samsung Galaxy S3 fans have been allowed to snap up the eagerly awaited device earlier than planned with retailers beginning to shift early arrivals of the S2 follow-on stock.

Although UK consumers will have to wait until next Wednesday, May 30th, to snap up their own Samsung Galaxy S3 handset, a number of tech outlets have suggested the quad-core device has been hitting stores in the Emirate nation early with consumers claiming they acquired the device for around the £430 mark.
