Verizon will be the last of the four major US carriers to release the Samsung Galaxy S3, and it now appears those who didn’t pre-order the device will be in for a slightly longer wait than expected. 48 hours longer, to be exact. Verizon’s site is now showing July 12th as the date the Galaxy S3 will be available for purchase after the carrier announced last week that the phone would launch on the 10th. VZW has not issued an official statement on the matter.
The change shouldn’t effect the shipping status of current pre-orders, as plenty of customers have already received their GS3 handsets in the mail. As for new online orders, the site is now showing a ship date of July 11th, meaning overnight orders will show up the same day as Verizon’s general retail availability.
