Samsung’s latest flagship Android smartphone, the Galaxy S III, is now up for pre-order in the UK via three of the country’s largest wireless carriers, namely O2, Three and Vodafone.
The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-powered handset can now be seen available for pre-order at O2 UK for free specific Pay Monthly plans.
Depending on the tariff they choose, however, users might end up to paying £299.99 for the smartphone.
The wireless carrier notes on its pre-order page
that Galaxy S III is set to arrive on shelves at the end of May, but does not offer a specific release date for it.
Both the Marble White and Pebble Blue flavors of the high-end device are listed over at O2, so that users would have more choices when it comes to making a purchase.
Three UK was one of the first operators in the country to announce
plans for ranging the new handset, and also among the first to add it to its website.
Users interested in getting the device with contracts on Three’s network would have to head over to their nearest store to place pre-orders for the device.
At the same time, they can also head to the carrier’s website
and enter their name and email address so as to receive details on when the mobile phone will become available for purchase.
Vodafone also confirmed plans to launch the new GALAXY S III, but it put the smartphone up for reservations only now.
The carrier will have exclusivity on the 32GB variant of Galaxy S III
, and users heading to its pre-order page
will be presented with the option to acquire either this variant, or the 16GB model.
At Vodafone, the handset will go for free on monthly plans that start at £41 per month. Its price goes up to £149 when a £26 per month plan is selected.
