The Samsung Galaxy S3 UK release date is still set for May 30 but the handset will be made available earlier for customers who pre-ordered the device

The Samsung Galaxy S3 will be available early to those customers who pre-ordered the Android Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone from the Samsung Brand Store in Westfield Shopping Center London.

Those wishing to get their Galaxy S3 before everyone else will have needed to pre-order the handset from the story where they will be able to pick up their phone at 6pm the night before the release date of 30th May.

 

This offer doesn't just apply to the Samsung Brand Store, Samsung is also offering a 7pm pick-up to other smartphone retailers giving the remaining customers an opportunity to grab the S3 early from a store more convenient to them.

Simon Stanford, Vice President of Telecommunications and Networks for Samsung UK had this to say:

"We’ve had an overwhelming response from our retail partners and customers alike since announcing the Galaxy S III on 3 May. So we wanted to delight our customers and reward them for pre-ordering by letting them get their hands on the device a day before anyone else."

Boasting some incredible specs, the Samsung Galaxy S3 clearly has the likes of the upcoming Apple iPhone 5 in its sights and by offering it early Samsung will be hoping to cater for both the hardcore Android fans and for those who want it on release day.

Samsung Galaxy S3: Price

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is available for £499 via Samsung directly, however, The Carphone Warehouse and other high street retailers are also offering the handset at a similar SIM-free price tag.

Meanwhile, O2 is offering the S3 for free on a £46 a month, 24 month contract, which comes with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of data usage.

Mobile network Three is offering the new Galaxy for free on its ‘The One Plan’, which includes unlimited data for a reasonable £34 per month (24 month contract).

Samsung Galaxy S3 Specs

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.

At 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6mm, the S3 is slightly longer, wider and chubbier than its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S2 (125.3 x 66.1 x 8.49mm).

It’s also been reported that a Samsung Galaxy S3 4G version will be made available to US buyers, although information about this has been quite thin on the ground. We’ll ensure to keep you updated as soon as we hear more.
