Pebble Blue Samsung Galaxy S3 Officially Delayed Because....

Eric McBride

….of a potentially pretty nasty problem. Previous reports had cited a small issue with the paint on the Pebble Blue Galaxy S3, but thanks to Mobile Bulgaria and  Phandroid, we now have a picture of how serious the issue actually is.

If you have a look at the photo above, you can see that there are spots of white running all along the back of the device, which is a clear indicator that the paint isn’t staying on the surface as it should. Samsung is still stating that it should be available for purchase in 2 to 3 weeks, and I can’t help but wonder how they will correct the issue in such a short amount of time. Do they plan on repainting ALL of them? Why are these issues always discovered AFTER the phone is released?

We will bring you more details as we receive them. I just hope we aren’t looking at the same problem HTC had with the release of the One S.

UPDATE: More pictures of the issue can be viewed directly here at Mobile Bulgaria's website. 

Samsung has also released the following statement in regards to the issue (via Slashgear):

Samsung’s Galaxy SIII Pebble Blue version comes with a newly invented blue colour and special hyper-glaze material.

In order to meet the highest internal quality standards and to provide the best quality Galaxy SIII to customers, a short supply of Pebble Blue version is expected in some regions in the next 2-3 weeks.

Samsung is working hard to ensure that customers will get the Pebble Blue coloured devices as soon as possible.”

    You guys need to be careful when you provide the source and credits for information that you publish.
    If you check phandroid, that you have credited for the article and the picture, you will see that they got it from DroidLife which obtain the pictures from MobileBulgaria.
    So if you would like to give credit where credit is due, you should give the credit to MobileBulgaria.
    I would expect that from a serious site like AndroidPit, right?

    Hi Uzunoff!

    Thanks for writing. We normally credit where we initially got the information from, as that source naturally has the original source link and where it came from. To put source as "Phandroid obtained from DroidLife obtained from Mobile Bulgaria" is a bit much, but we do our best to keep as close to the original source as possible.

    There are universal citation rules, and the reason why we do citations is to give credit to the original author/creator of certain materials.
    It is great that you guys are trying to give credit, but you should follow the rules and give credit to the creator and not to the place where you got the information.
    If you need more information about how to cite, check the MLA citation style,
    I don't think that AndroidPit has the right to "reinvent" how to cite.
    There are rules out there for a reason and they should be followed.
    You can list the citation, by "Images originally obtained from MobileBulgaria"

    Hi Uzunoff,

    We are very glad Mobile Bulgaria was able to obtain this information, and because of the nature of this story, we will gladly change the source of it to Mobile Bulgaria.

    Thank you for bringing it to our attention :-D
