Customers interested in the latest Galaxy S III in the pebble blue finish will have a hard time finding it available in stores for the next several weeks. After numerous rumors indicating that Samsung’s special colored Galaxy S III SIM-free version was delayed, Samsung officially came out with a statement confirming the delay.
Citing low quality, Samsung requires the Galaxy S III in pebble blue must meet certain standards and until they are met it will not launch. Basically, Samsung expects a 2-3 week delay until the pebble blue version of the Galaxy S III will launch in multiple markets worldwide.
It’s nice to see Samsung being forward about the production issue facing the GS3, and hopefully the Korean based company can rectify the remaining issues in an efficient manner.
Samsung’s statement can be read below:
“Samsung’s Galaxy SIII Pebble Blue version comes with a newly invented blue colour and special hyper-glaze material.
In order to meet the highest internal quality standards and to provide the best quality Galaxy SIII to customers, a short supply of Pebble Blue version is expected in some regions in the next 2-3 weeks.
Samsung is working hard to ensure that customers will get the Pebble Blue coloured devices as soon as possible.”
