Phones 4u to range Samsung Galaxy SIII upon UK Launch

Share Article

Phones 4u makes the Samsung Galaxy SIII available for preorder.

Phones 4u has a strong history of successfully launching Samsung Galaxy devices.

Phones 4u, leading high street retailer of mobile phones and Samsung’s exclusive retail partner for the Korean manufacturer’s Samsung Experience Zone at Phones 4u Oxford Street, can confirm that it is to range the much talked about Samsung Galaxy S3 when it goes on sale in the UK on 30th May.

All of those who took advantage of the preorder initiative will receive an exclusive "premium accessory bundle" worth over £50 courtesy of Phones 4u and Samsung.

With anticipation reaching fever pitch prior to the launch of the new addition to Samsung’s Galaxy range, Phones 4u expect retail demand for Samsung’s ‘smartest’ phone yet to exceed that experienced online.

The level of interest in Samsung’s ‘Next Galaxy’ garnered by Phones 4u when it offered customers the chance to preregister for updates on the upcoming device was overwhelming and saw uptake three times that of the Galaxy SII in the first 24 hours alone.

Scott Hooton, Chief Commercial Officer at Phones 4u said: “Phones 4u has a strong history of successfully launching Samsung Galaxy devices, resulting in our recent collaboration with Samsung that saw the launch of a dedicated experience zone at our London Oxford Street store.

“Accounting for 44% of Galaxy SII contract sales on the high street in 2011*, and being the first retailer to ‘globally’ launch the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, we’re thrilled to be offering our customers the new Samsung Galaxy SIII in addition to the widest range of live Samsung handsets available for demonstration anywhere in the UK.”

Available free on contract from £36 a month, the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be available in-store and online at Phones 4u from 30th May, but can be preordered from Phones 4u online today.
