It looks like Clove UK and Verizon won't be alone in having had to deal with Galaxy S III delays: Samsung has announced that the entire Canadian launch has been pushed back a week. The phone was originally scheduled to hit carriers in Canada on June 20th, but according to a tweet from Samsung the date needed to be changed due to "unprecedented demand." To be certain, the company has already sold a lot of phones — Samsung announced in May that it had received over 9 million pre-orders for its latest flagship device — but there have been issues reported with the finish of the Pebble Blue variant as well. No matter what the reason, the Galaxy S III will be available in Canada on June 27th.
