Samsung Galaxy S III breaks cover early in Dubai

Samsung Galaxy S III breaks cover early in DubaiIf you're one of the apparently quite large number of people twitching in anticipation of the Samsung Galaxy S III going on sale next Tuesday, we'd advise looking away now.

Seems Sammy lovers over in Dubai have been given the chance to jump the gun and get their hands on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich powerhouse early. So much for it going on sale in Europe first.

Samsung certainly kept us waiting for the Galaxy S III to break cover, but ultimately the on-sale date of May 29 isn't actually that far from what most people were expecting at the start of the year, before Sammy started playing hard to get.

But the torture isn't over, it seems, as several sources have confirmed that the S3 is already on sale in Dubai and is being pawed at even as we speak.

The Verge says a Reddit user has been in touch to report having seen a “now available” poster for the Galaxy S III in a local shopping centre, with a sales clerk reckoning the white variant of the phone was available for around £424.

Another reader, meanwhile, has sent in several unboxing-style pics of a Galaxy S III along with its accessories, apparently purchased for the equivalent of around £433.

Take a look, take a good long look. Six more days...

Our 'torture' is almost over? Glad to hear that. Dubai, ironically, does still have it, even with SGS3s in the shop ;)

Strong rumours from store staff in both Carphone Warehouse & Phones 4U suggests that Samsung haven't made enough for launch....
