Back in August we revealed that the black variant of the SGS3 would be available in a variant that has 64GB internal storage.
We have now had some indicative pricing and availability through for the SGS3 Black 64GB and have made it available to pre-order for £500 (£600 including VAT). Stock is expected to be available in approximately two months time. However, at this stage it is not guaranteed that we will range the handset as we will need to place an order for a minimum number of units. We are therefore taking the following course of action:
- The SGS3 Black 64GB is now available to pre-order on the Clove website (placing a pre-order will not result in your card being charged).
- In two weeks time we will decide whether or not to take stock of the handset based on the number of pre-orders that we have received for the handset.
- If we have received enough pre-order interest for the handset and decide to range it, we will ask customers to confirm these pre-orders and to make payment. At this stage we will provide an updated ETA for the arrival of stock. Do be aware that from this point onwards there is likely to be a 5-6 week lead time.
- We will then ship orders as soon as stock arrives.
Here in the UK, the majority of high end Android handsets are released with 16 or 32GB internal storage. The recently released HTC One X+ is the first Android handset to feature 64GB internal storage. However, unlike the S3, the One X+ does not include a microSD slot. The S3 64GB will therefore be the first handset to offer a combined total of 128GB storage (64GB internal + 64GB microSDXC slot).
We’ll provide any further updates via the Clove Blog and website as and when they are available. If you do want an SGS3 64GB, please place a pre-order on the Clove website as soon as possible in order to stand the best possible chance of it happening.
