Samsung Galaxy S4 delayed in the UK

Samsung's highly anticipated Galaxy S4 smartphone is delayed in the UK.

Samsung's much hyped and anticipated Galaxy S4 smartphone is delayed in the UK. 

After reports of delays to the Galaxy S4 in the US due to supply issues and overwhelming demand, we're seeing the handset delays at some outlets in the UK. The Galaxy S4 is due to go on sale across Blighty tomorrow but you might struggle to get your mits on a handset. See: Best Samsung Galaxy S4 contract deals.

Online retailer Clove has announced its Galaxy S4 stock has been delayed until 3 May which is next Friday. Unfortunately Clove could only say: "At the moment we cannot provide any official information on the cause of the delays."

Sharing the same problem, TalkTalk says its Galaxy S4 units will not be delivered until 3 May. Amazon's listings for the phone, albeit classed as 'used', equally state the same 3 May date. Expansys simply says 'Ordered on request' for the Galaxy S4.

Samsung said: "Due to overwhelming global demand of Galaxy S4, the initial supply may be limited. We expect to fulfil inventory to meet demands in the coming weeks,"

Tesco Mobile says the Galaxy S4 will go on sale from tomorrow in all Phone Shops but this message is accompanied with a warning: "High demand for this handset means they will sell quickly. We're expecting more deliveries shortly and will keep you updated here."

It's unclear how much stock has been made available for the UK so you're best off getting to shops nice and early tomorrow to get your hands on the Galaxy S4. Let us know how you get on in the comments below.
