Samsung Galaxy S3 comes a day early for pre-order customers in the UK

May 18, 2012

We’ve given you the nitty-gritty details of where you can buy the Samsung Galaxy S3 in the UK. Now there’s some good news for those who have pre-ordered the phone from the Samsung Brand store at Westfield Stratford City. According to Samsung Mobile UK, you will be able to collect the curvaceous phone the night before its official launch date of May 30. So, if you’re in town on May 29, pay the store a visit starting from 6 PM, and you’ll be coming home with the Samsung Galaxy S3.

For those who haven’t pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy S3, note that you won’t be able to buy the phone on May 29 in stores, as the stocks are strictly reserved for those who have made the pre-order. Your best bet is to show up a day after.

Don’t feel too bad if you didn’t pre-order your Galaxy S3 from the Samsung Brand store, as there’s a possibility that you can pick up the phone on the same date from the retailer you’re preordering the phone from, albeit an hour later from 7 PM, as per Samsung’s policy. But you’ll have to confirm this with the retailer, because it all depends on each retailer preferences.

Moving up the availability of the Samsung Galaxy S3 a day early for people who pre-ordered the phone is Samsung’s idea of a surprise. Samsung UK and Ireland VP Simon Stanford said that the company “had an overwhelming response from our retail partners and customers alike since announcing the Galaxy S III on 3 May. 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.”

Or, this could simply be Samsung’s way to boost the pre-order numbers of the phone, which we already know are spectacular. Either way, there’s still time to make that Samsung Galaxy S3 pre-order, if you want to get it earlier than the rest of UK folks.
