Customers could have to wait as long as four weeks.
In the past two weeks, demand for the Samsung Galaxy S III has been incredible, with over nine million pre-orders – something the S and S II failed to achieve – while Carphone Warehouse called it 'the most pre-ordered phone of 2012'.
Now, Vodafone has told Pocket-lint that its customers may not receive the device for between two-four weeks, with the official launch penciled in for tomorrow – May 30th.
The S III comes in two colours, but eager beavers that pre-ordered the 32GB marble white and 16GB or 32GB pebble blue versions can expect the shipping delays, though the 16GB white model is expected to arrive on time.
A Vodafone spokesperson, said: "We’re working closely with Samsung to ensure devices reach our customers as soon as possible and will be contacting them directly to advise them on their order’s progress.
"The Galaxy SIII has already become the most pre-ordered device to join our line-up and we’re as keen as our customers are to get it into their hands as soon as possible."
