Samsung Galaxy S3 vanishes, Jelly Bean in Sept

By Daniel Chubb - Aug 31, 2012

There are plenty of reasons for the Samsung Galaxy S3 stock to start vanishing, which is exactly what’s happening right now, and we believe it’s due to more than the court win for Apple, but that has to be the major factor. The recent news of more colors for the Galaxy S3 is sure to increase sales, although these aren’t available in stores just yet, so are no relation to low stock.

Recent survey points to Samsung Galaxy S3 vanishing – Trip Chowdhry, Equity Research LinkedIn profile seen here, has reported that stores are selling out of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S3 and this includes Verizon, AT&T, and Costco stores. He mentions that Verizon stores are also seeing the Galaxy S3 outselling the iPhone over the last month. It is worth noting that Chowdhry polled a number of AT&T stores, five in total, and they all reported an increase in Galaxy S3 sales after the Apple vs. Samsung verdict.

There are a number of reasons why there has been an increase in Galaxy S3 sales, which is creating low stock across the US, and this includes the fact that the S3 is not in Apple’s targets like the S2 is. Some people believe it’s the opposite to this, and that it could be in fact due to some buyers wanting the Galaxy S3 before it gets a ban. We’d love to hear your thoughts on this, and why you might think the Galaxy S3 is seeing low stock all of a sudden?

Increased sales thanks to people supporting Samsung – It is worth noting that we have also seen Samsung fans offering a lot of support for their favorite phone maker, and each time we reported news about the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 it has been met with comments of support, which includes some people stating they will get these devices just to help Samsung in their battle with Apple. Are you more supportive of Samsung after the Apple verdict?

Samsung Galaxy S3 gaining Jelly Bean in September – you’ll be able to download the new Android 4.1 software within the next 4 weeks if the rumor mill is correct, which is what we’re hearing from insiders. We reported a couple of days ago that the Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update had missed a launch at the Unpacked event, but there had been a promise by Samsung that it’s coming really soon, so the latest rumors of a release date in September seem pretty spot on.
