Samsung Galaxy S III’s international ‘Pebble Blue’ version delayed due to production error
The Samsung Galaxy S III is expected to hit the shelves in major markets worldwide in the month of June but then it seems that there is probably going to be a delay in the Pebble Blue version of the S III due to a production error.
According to the source, Samsung found a production error in the Blue battery cover which went on to force the Korean giant to destroy about 600,000 units of the cover and this is resulting in a delay of the device.
It is also being said that the Marble White version is also facing delays for unknown reason. Online retailer, Negri Electronics has sent out an email to all the people who pre-ordered the white version read:
“To many, being first is a necessity. To us, it is a requirement. While we do not have great news for our customers, we still anticipate to be the first to carry the Galaxy S III, but the date has been set to the 29th. Our supplier originally gave us a firm date of arrival for the 25th, but has failed to follow through with the promise- putting us in a compromising position with our reputation and name. We anticipate having the Blue, 16GB Galaxy S III before the White. At this time we are not trying to assume a delay from Samsung; but the White is expected to arrive June 1st.”
But this delay doesn’t seem to affect the launch of the smartphone in the US which is expected to happen in June. Also the Galaxy S III is launching in India on the May 31 and is expected to be available soon after.
