Samsung will offer the Galaxy S III a day early in UK to some customers that pre-ordered it
It’s not something we hear about too often, especially when delays are more prevalent amongst smartphone releases, but it seems as though our friends over in the UK are getting treated to something good.

Specifically, it was confirmed today through Samsung UK that the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III will be launching a single day earlier than expected – well, it’s actually for those customers who managed to pre-order the smartphone through the Samsung owned store at Westfield Stratford City. No doubt it’s probably a small percentage of people, but nonetheless, those lucky individuals are surely going to be ecstatic knowing they’ll be able to show off the handset earlier than everyone else.

For those who qualify for the early bird special, they’ll be able to nab the handset come May 29th at 6:00 PM.  However, for those customers that made a pre-order with another retailer, they’ll be given the opportunity to pick up the handset after 7:00 PM – that’s as long as the retailer agrees to it all. Everyone else, however, will simply need to wait until May 30th when the handset’s launch is expected to kick off.
