Samsung reportedly cancels 64GB Galaxy S III [UPDATE: False]

EDIT: Samsung has responded, and told us they are, in fact, shipping the 64GB units. You can read the full story here.

When the GSIII was announced a few months ago, it was supposed to come in 3 different variants: 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. But the 64GB seems to be removed from the line of great devices because a UK retailer has cancelled all their pre-orders.

One customer told us that the retailer explained that his his order could not be processed because:

Samsung  has decided not to release the unit.

Looks like Samsung has decided that the 64GB model of the S III hasn’t generated enough user interest and manufacturing it won’t be worth it. That’s not surprising, considering the device’s microSD card slot, which allows for far cheaper memory expansion.

Just remember: at this point in time, this is just rumor, and is not official. We will release more details as they become available to us! So, were you planning on the the 64GB variation of the GSIII? Let us know in the comments below!
