The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was scheduled to go on sale tomorrow in the UK, along with delivery of pre-orders placed since September 19th. Disappointingly however, the smartphone has had its launched pushed back a week until October 17th.

The reason for the delay, according to Samsung, is overly high demand for the handset. Perhaps the company decided that it would be best to wait for more stock to ensure that everyone receives their Note 4 at the same time. This also puts the shipping date back in-line with the US release.

@Faryaab Hi. Due to the amazing interest and demand for the Galaxy Note 4, the device will now go on sale in the UK from the 17th October.

An extra week isn’t an overly long delay, but it’s bound to be frustrating for those who placed their pre-order nearly a month ago. Fortunately, the Galaxy Note 4 is a handset worth waiting for.
