Samsung Galaxy S4 UK release delayed! (Er, by one day)

Samsung Galaxy S4 UK release delayed! (Er, by one day)It seems like only yesterday that Jeremy Maxwell tap-danced his way into no one’s heart, but it’s actually been five long weeks since the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch, and the wait for Sammo’s latest flagship is finally almost over.

However, if you’d planned a stonking great party for next Friday, think again. See, the Samsung Galaxy S4’s UK release has been delayed. For, uhm, 24 hours.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 UK release date was initially conveyed as April 26, a week on Friday, however it appears to have slipped back to the Saturday.

A tweet from Samsung Mobile UK confirms April 27 as the amended release date for the Samsung Galaxy S4 in the UK, and the countdown on the Samsung Experience Store site has been updated too.

The Inquirer’s thoroughly pleasant Carly Page heard the following cries from Samsung’s flagship Stratford Westfield store: “We received word from Samsung on Wednesday telling us that the Samsung Galaxy S4 now won't go on sale until 27 April. We don't know why."

There seems to be some confusion among buyers on various forums and that. It’s been pointed out that Carphone Warehouse, for one, still touts April 26 for the Samsung Galaxy S4’s UK release, though that might well change.

Have any readers pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy S4? Have you been told it’ll be Saturday instead of Friday? Hit us up with a comment, duders.

I've pre-ordered a launch day S4 through O2 and I've not received any notification of any launch delays. Since it was being delivered to the office on Friday I now have the dilemma of whether to switch the delivery address to home for Saturday (and wait around all day) so I dont have to wait til Monday when the guys at the loading bay are back in work!

Mines comming today 26th i ordered with vodafone and i have the delivery tracking since last night. Im wathing it now, its at the delivery depot waiting to be out for delivery. the dpd sight currently says "Your parcel is going out for delivery" I cant belive it, i will get mine a day before samsung stratford launch. I just did a search for samsung stratford and read about the note 2 launch party and what an absolute joke that was. Terrible staff knowledge and badly organised, sounds like its happening again
