Samsung Launches Pop-Up Stores Ahead Of Galaxy S3 Release

With consumer thirst for the Samsung Galaxy S3 reaching fever pitch, the company is set to launch two pop-up stores in London at the time of the smartphone's release.

The ‘Samsung Mobile PIN' will come to Westfield in Shepherd's Bush and Old Spitalfields Market on the 29th of May - the same day the ferociously anticipated S3 hits UK shelves. Samsung say the stores will offer "an immersive, premium pop-up experience", as customers browse the manufacturer's smartphones, tablets, TVs, notebooks and digital cameras.

The company adds, "We've focused on providing our customers with the opportunity to discover the best new technology available while demonstrating how our products interact together". Cashing in on the Olympics build-up as well as the S3 launch, the stores will host a series of events including the chance to meet Olympic athletes.

Samsung can be followed on Facebook and Twitter where news on the upcoming events will be revealed.

The phone is set to launch on the 30th of May across the United Kingdom. All the major mobile phone networks (including Talkmobile) have confirmed that they will be stocking the handset. The Galaxy S3 is available from £500 on SIM Free and from £26 per month on Pay Monthly.
