Delays have hit the UK release of the Samsung Galaxy S2 smartphone, which originally was set to arrive at some point this month.
Now retailers who were providing pre-orders for the top of the range handset have said that it will not be made available to customers until May.
The specs of the Galaxy S II make it one of the most powerful handsets on the market, with a dual core processor and eye-popping 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus display, combined in a very slim, light body.
While its March launch date looks to have slipped by a couple of months, the price also seems to be falling, as retailers initially suggested it would breach the £600 mark for the SIM free edition, but it is now being offered for about £530.
Of course network providers will jump onboard to subsidise the smartphone and ensure that a wider audience can enjoy the Samsung Galaxy S II without investing so much cash upfront.
The delay could allow rival manufacturers to get more of a foothold as a rash of dual-core smartphones are set to launch in the interim and snap up market share.
