Samsung Galaxy S3 To Be Available A Day Early

Samsung Mobile UK has announced that some lucky customers will receive their pre-ordered Samsung Galaxy S3 the night before its official release.

Customers who ordered their new Galaxy S3 from the Samsung Brand Store in Westfield Stratford City will be able to receive their device - the night before general release, on the 30th May.

Any consumer who ordered their new device from the Samsung Brand Store can collect their smartphone from 6pm on the 29th May.

The option has been given to other retailers to release pre-ordered devices, from 7pm on the same day. However, the choice whether to allow customers to collect their new devices is with the individual retailer.

"We've had an overwhelming response from our retail partners and customers alike since announcing the Galaxy S III on 3 May", said Simon Stanford, Vice President, Telecommunications and Networks, Samsung UK and Ireland.

"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. We believe we have created our best smartphone yet, designed specifically with daily human needs in mind, and we are proud to provide our customers with a truly unique mobile user experience."
