Samsung's next Android flagship smartphone is due to burst onto the scene next week, but it has reportedly already arrived in Dubai.
Despite the fact that the Galaxy S III should have been out next week in Dubai, the same as with the UK, it can now be purchased over in the country for the devilish price of $666 (about £425).
The news was spilled on Reddit, where a user spotted a big "in-stores now" type Galaxy S III display in a mall shop. He went inside, talked to the staff and discovered that the store had plenty of the handset in stock - although only the marble white version (not the dark blue, sorry, pebble blue).
Other reports have indicated that the phone is on sale at slightly more, $680, so it would seem that there are certainly some folks getting hold of an S III already. Indeed, a GSM Arena reader noted that his store had actually sold out of its stock completely (but with more on the way, apparently).
The Galaxy S III has also had just a little of the shine taken off its impending launch, as the phone's exclusive S Voice feature, Samsung's Siri-alike voice recognition system, has been leaked online. Not to mention some other apps, as we reported earlier this week.
