Samsung's Galaxy S3 64GB made no appearance at launch but it will arrive in October.

Smartphone retailer Clove has revealed that the illusive device will be available from early October. It has also been confirmed that the Galaxy S3 will come in the black colour which Samsung flaunted on its Facebook page recently.

Clove said: "There was rather exciting news earlier this week that the Samsung Galaxy S3 would soon be available in black. We now have some more exciting details to add to this – it will launch with 64GB internal storage and is due to be available in early October."

There are no details on pricing yet, but Clove hopes to have an indication when it opens pre-orders soon.

The launch of the black Galaxy S III will make it the first SIM-free smartphone to be released in the UK with 64GB of storage.
