Samsung confirms S III's India launch on May 31

A few days ago, it was reported that Samsung had put up a dedicated page allowing one to pre-order the flagship handset. Though the exact price of the smartphone is not known yet, one who preorders it will have to shell out Rs.2,000, in order to reserve a handset. This may come as an interesting piece of information for those who wish to purchase the smartphone, as they get first dibs on it. To sweeten the deal, Samsung is also throwing in a Bluetooth headset, for those who pay the full amount three days before it is launched. Just last week, all rumours surrounding the probable launch date of the Galaxy S III were doused, when it was revealed that the handset would make an appearance on May 31, 2012.

The folks at Flamboyz received a coupon that was sent out to a consumer who preordered the handset. The website states, “Samsung started the pre-order system in India via their e-store taking Rs 2000 as a pre-order payment, in return thanking the customers by giving them a free bluetooth headset along with the phone. Customers who have pre-ordered their devices have received a confirmation on the release date - 31st May 2012 along with a coupon code which will redeem their Rs 2000 paid while pre-booking the handset.”
But what comes as a surprise that only the marble white version of the smartphone will be up for grabs on the date of launch. If one happened to have preordered the pebble blue model, and now do not care what colour the handset is in and just want to lay their hands on it, can opt for the marble white version, instead. If not, then the pebble blue version of the Samsung Galaxy S III will be made available by the second week of June 2012.

Though Samsung have shed details on the availability of their Galaxy S III, what remains to be known is the price of the model. As soon as any concrete information is available regarding the S III's pricing, we will definitely let you know.
