Samsung Galaxy S III now on sale in Dubai, yours for $667

0. phoneArena 22 May 2012, 08:13 posted on

Although it is not supposed to be on the market just yet, the Samsung Galaxy S III can already be purchased in Dubai, apparently. Advertisements for the highly-anticipated smartphone were spotted at a mall by a fellow Reddit user, who initially presumed that only pre-orders were being accepted. However, after a brief conversation with a store employee, it turned out that the white version of the next Galaxy was in stock indeed with plenty of units waiting to meet their new owners...

I can confirm that the device is being sold in the Middle East, but i'm still on the line on whether to buy the S3 or wait for the Note 2.

The device in person looks much better than in the pictures, it's actually not ugly at all, I personally like it.

they started selling it here to fight as Samsung employee called it " gray market "

Well, gray market is pretty strong here. Here are some prices on the gray market:
Galaxy Nexus - 380$
Galaxy S II - 420$
Galaxy Note - 490$
HTC One X - 530$
So, you can understand why they are forced to sell it for this price (Now this price is for the Galaxy Nexus in the malls).

Going to check Galaxy S III, I am 100% sure the price will be around 580-600$.

It's available in Pakistan too but for a much higher price tag:79999 PKR($865):http://homeshopping.pk/products/Samsung-Galaxy-S-III-3-White-in-Pakistan-.html and while on the other side HTC One X is available for 51500 PKR($564):http://homeshopping.pk/products/HTC-One-X-in-Pakistan-.html To be very frank i am not willing to pay $300 for Galaxy S3 when both the phones are almost equal in every department especially when One X which has a much better build quality is available for $300 less!!!!

The cheapest Galaxy S III I have seen in Dubai is around 520$, no way they can be 400$; this country is tax-free, so you get the minimum price tag for electronics, how come in Malaysia they are so cheap..

i have no idea but this guy called Hassan has a new genuine S3 according to him for $400 and he can ship world wide within 2-3 days, can you believe that, i emailed him telling him to prove it and asking him"is it true or is it another Chinese remake" you know, Chinese can make anything and it looks exactly the same as the original.
kindly advice
