Samsung Galaxy Z release date: Will not launch in the UK

Budget-friendly Samsung Galaxy not coming to the UK.

Just days after new pictures of the Samsung Galaxy Z handset appeared online Samsung has announced that Sammy fans in Blighty will not be seeing the cut-down version of the Galaxy S II on these fair shores anytime soon.

"There are currently no plans to launch the Galaxy Z in the UK market" a spokesperson for Samsung has revealed to T3.

The Samsung Galaxy Z was spied over in Sweden earlier this week, where it may-or-may-not have been accidentally revealed by Three.

The Galaxy Z looked to be a more budget-friendly version of the UK's current leading smartphone, the Galaxy S II. With a 1GHz dual-core processor, the Galaxy Z is slightly out-specced by its 1.2GHz-toting bigger brother, with the handset's display also on the receiving end of a downgrade having been cut from a retina-burning Super AMOLED screen to a more standard Super Clear LCD. The camera also takes a hit in the name of pricing, dropping from 8-megapixels to a lowly 5.

Are you disappointed that the Samsung Galaxy Z will not be hitting UK stores in the near future forcing consumers to splash out on the premium priced Galaxy S II? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
