Samsung Galaxy S4 sold out – Pre-Orders and new stock delayed

Samsung launched its latest flagship Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S4, last week on the 26th of April and with just 3 days passing since its release many people are still without the handset despite pre-ordering or attempting to purchase on the day.

The S4 has already been delayed with customers who are looking for the handset having to wait a further week for stock of the phone due to an “unprecedented demand”.

The delay in stock will affect customers all across the board, including network supplied S4’s and SIM-free devices, with retailers of the latter now seeing stocking dates put back a week to around the 3rd of May.

Samsung has added that it is working hard to ensure that pre-orders and sales across all channels are fulfilled as soon as possible, but with the demand only escalating due to lack of stock, Samsung and the UK networks could expect a serious amount of backlash.

We have had hands on time with the S4 and can see why the handset is so popular but with pre-orders and interest being high since the smartphone’s announcement it’s hard to see how just a few days after release Samsung has not provided enough handsets to meet the demand.
