Unfortunately (or maybe this can be otherwise fortunately), if you happened to preorder the pebble blue variant of Samsung GALAXY S III, apparently, you will still need to wait much longer than you’ve been expecting before because a new floating rumor has it that the release date of Samsung GALAXY S III, the pebble blue model, which is expected to land on May 29th, reportedly just got cancelled by Samsung itself.
This can be really disappointing for many loyal fans of this phone because they had been made believed that the phone would launch on May 29th. However, Samsung has a strong reason why it decided to cancel the release date of this phone.
According to Tweekers.net, around 600.000 battery covers of Samsung GALAXY SIII’s pebble blue version are considered defective, so Samsung has nothing to do except to destroy them all.
As a matter of fact, one of the pre-ordering customer in Scandinavia just told on Reddit website that he just got an email saying that his Samsung GALAXY SIII’s pebble blue order was delayed from the original release date (on May 29th) for the reason that the supplier decided to stop shipping the phones for Scandinavia regions.
Another tech website called Phandroid, also received a similar email from the other retailer named Negri Electronics regarding the cancellation of this device launch. But weirdly, the model that got cancelled in Phandroid’s case was the white version of Samsung GALAXY S III, not the pebble blue.
However, the story from Scandinavian user is more likely to happen since it’s supported by the fact that recently, the white variant of Samsung GALAXY S III is already available to buy by now, not just preorder, at the store in Dubai and UAE. Besides, according to Android NZ, some carriers and retailers just made an announcement that the white version of the phone is the one that will be available to get on the release date, not the pebble blue.
So for those of you who already pre-ordered the pebble blue model, it looks like your patience will be tested again. And as I said earlier, this news could actually be your fortune because I don’t think you want to receive the phone if some components are defective, right? So be grateful for that.
