March 7th, 2012

Samsung Galaxy S AdvanceThe Samsung Galaxy S Advance has been delayed yet again, and will now start shipping at the end of March.

That’s according to SIM free phone shop Clove, which has pushed back the handset’s availability until “the week commencing March 26”, despite previous expectations for a late-Feb release. The reason for the delay still remains a mystery, but we’ve been in touch with Samsung for further information.

The Galaxy S Advance, if you’ve lost track of Samsung‘s ever-growing Galaxy line-up, is yet another updated version of the original Galaxy S. On the spec-front you’ll find a 4-inch WVGA touchscreen, Android 2.3 and a decent 1GHz dual-core processor, alongside Samsung’s typical TouchWiz overlay.

There’s also a 5 megapixel camera with HD video, a 1.3 megapixel video call camera, HSDPA and WiFi connectivity, a 1500mAh battery and either 8GB or 16GB of built-in storage.

Don’t mind waiting to get your hands on the smartphone? It’s available to pre-order from Clove for £354 SIM free.
