Samsung Galaxy S3 already available in Dubai

Folks living in the emirate of Dubai will be happy to know that they are among the first lucky souls to get a chance to own the Samsung Galaxy S3. The device have been spotted around retail stores starting today, with one user having the money on hand to take one home.

That user tipped images of it and its packaging to The Verge. Meanwhile, one redditor also posted a photo of a sign advertising the phone as being up for sale. It was originally believed that the UK would be the very first market to see the Samsung Galaxy S3, but that clearly isn’t the case.
If you have a friend around those parts see what you can do about an import. [via The Verge, Reddit, thanks Joel!]

    Dubai pays the premium price happily

    • Varun Shewakramani

      Not really a premium price, the phone will sell off contract for around $700 in most asian countries. You must have carrier subsidies in your country if you consider $666 premium

        the unlocked S3 price is AED 2,624 (USD 710), and for sure this price will decrease in next few weeks….
