Clove will not be ranging the Samsung Galaxy SIII 64GB


A few weeks ago we made the Samsung Galaxy SIII Black 64GB available to pre-order, with the intention of ranging it should the demand be high enough.

Unfortunately the number of pre-orders that we received did not meet the minimum required to bring stock into the UK, so we will not be ranging the handset.

This comes as unfortunate news and we would have loved to have ranged the handset, especially for those of you that have been expressing an interest in it for some time. Thank you to those of you that did place a pre-order and our apologies that we could not fulfil it for you.


p>The wait will now continue for a handset that offers large internal and external (microSD) storage. The closes equivalent to the S3 64GB is the HTC One X+, which has 64GB internal storage but no microSD slot, or the Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB with a 64GB card inserted.

HTC One X+: How does it differ to the HTC One X?

HTC One X vs HTC One X+

HTC’s new flagship, the One X+, is due to arrive in stock at Clove next week.

At a glance, the upgraded HTC One X is slimmer, 67% faster, has double the internal storage and up to 50% more battery life than its predecessor.

However, it’s more than just a bump in battery life and processing power that the addition of the ‘+’ symbol represents. 

Let’s have a look in more detail at what improvements the HTC One X+ has to offer.

HTC One X + stock delayed until the 30th October

We are very sorry to announce that stock for the HTC One X + has been pushed back to the 30th October. Rest assured; as soon as stock arrives we will endeavour to get all orders out ASAP!

We do apologise for this delay; but it is out of our hands and the situation remains the same for all resellers of the HTC One X +

HTC One X & One S Jelly Bean updates to begin rolling out this month

Along with announcing the HTC One X+ today, HTC has confirmed that the Jelly Bean update for the HTC One X and HTC One S ‘is scheduled begin rolling out this month’. Experience has taught us to take up date schedules with a pinch of salt, but the good news is that this is the most precise date we’ve had for the update so far and given HTC’s estimated timeframe, we can certainly expect international versions of the handset to receive the update by the end of November. Also included with the Jelly Bean update will be HTC Sense 4+, which will add some more features to the company’s custom Android skin. Unfortunately there has been no mention of the JB update for the HTC One V, but we’ll let you know as soon as we’ve had any news.
