Pebble Blue Galaxy S3 delayed due to hyper-glazing issue
If you are waiting to get your hands on the “Pebble Blue” version of the new Samsung Galaxy S3 (you know, the a single made for humans) that wait just got longer. A 2-three week delay has been announced due to “quality manage concerns.”
The problem behind this delay is the truth that a large portion of the new smartphones have irregularities in the “hyper-glazing” that is performed when adding the Pebble Blue color at the factory. Mistakes in production have resulted in a blotchy finish like the one pictured above, causing Samsung to have to dispose of about 600,000 of the plastic casings. A new production run is at the moment underway with the manufacturing concern resolved, but clearly Samsung is now behind on its original delivery estimate.
Samsung has put out a PR statement that explains the delay is triggered by the firm wanting to make positive the best item gets into the hands of buyers. That’s a bit of spin on the fact a person fell asleep at the switch throughout the coloring procedure. Surely somebody was supposed to be carrying out spot-checks in the course of production?
The excellent news is that if you could care less about the color of your mobile device, the 16GB white version of the S3 is hitting shops proper on time. The only delays that are becoming related with the white S3 is for unlocked versions, but even those must only take a few much more days to arrive.
