Samsung offers Galaxy S III a day early for Brand Store pre-orders
Consumers who pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S III from the manufacturer's Westfield Stratford City store will be able to get their hands on the device the night before it launches.
The eagerly awaited device goes on sale on 30 May. However, pre-orders made at the Samsung Brand Store in the east London shopping complex can be picked up from 6pm on 29 May. Only customers that have pre-ordered the Galaxy S III will be able to get their hands on it on that date.
The manufacturer is also giving retailers the opportunity to make their pre-orders available for collection from 7pm on 29 May. Pre-orders from retentions or online will not be delivered to customers until 30 May.
Simon Stanford, VP for telecommunications and networks at Samsung UK & Ireland, said: 'We’ve 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.'
