KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung might have kept us waiting five months, but the 64GB Galaxy S3 smartphone has finally gone on sale in the UK.
Sticking to its promise of releasing the handset in the second half of the year, Samsung has given online retailer Clove the green light to start selling the storage heavy Samsung Galaxy S3 model.
However, don't get too excited, as Clove has said that it won't start shipping for another two months yet, adding that if it doesn't receive enough preorders, it won't be shipping the device at all.
The retailer explains, "If we have received enough pre-order interest for the handset and decide to range it, we will ask customers to confirm these pre-orders and to make payment.
"At this stage we will provide an updated ETA for the arrival of stock. Do be aware that from this point onwards there is likely to be a [five to six] week lead time."
Of course, the 64GB Samsung Galaxy S3 handset sports specifications that are identical to those of its smaller storage siblings, of which resellers have already managed to shift 30 million units. These specifications include a 4.8in HD AMOLED screen, a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, an 8MP rear-facing camera, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and microSD card memory expansion, which means that it can support up to 128GB of storage.
The 64GB model will also be sold only in black, as opposed to both black and white flavours.
If you want to help ensure that the 64GB Samsung Galaxy S3 will tip up here in the UK, it's available to preorder at Clove for £600 SIM free. µ
