[Updated] Galaxy S20 Ultra 512GB release delayed until May in the Netherlands

We have come across some interesting news related to our home base here in the Netherlands. It appears that customers who wanted to buy the 512GB Galaxy S20 Ultra will now have to wait for much longer than they would have anticipated.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra 512GB release has been delayed until May in the Netherlands. It was supposed to be out by March 13 so we’re looking at a delay of at least a couple of months, that is if the situation remains the same. This variant is currently listed as out of stock on Samsung NL’s website.

It’s unclear at this point in time why the release has been pushed back significantly for the 512GB variant of the Galaxy S20 Ultra in the Netherlands. We have reached out to Samsung NL for a comment on the matter.

That could be one of the reasons why there’s such a significant delay in the release of this variant in the Netherlands, but it may also be something else entirely. We’ll only really have clarity on the matter once we hear back from Samsung about this.

It remains to be seen if this will also be the case for the Galaxy S20 Ultra 512GB in other markets across the globe. Have you heard of shipping times for this variant being delayed in your market as well? Do let us know by dropping a comment down below.

Update: We have received a statement from Samsung on the matter. The statement was provided in Dutch, a translated version is posted below.

Due to the unexpected success during the pre-order of the Galaxy S20 Ultra (512GB), we are unfortunately not able to deliver all pre-orders for this device at the moment. We expect to deliver these orders in May. We offer a suitable solution for consumers who have to wait a little longer.

In similar Switzerland I called my operator and I was told that there would be 6 to 8 weeks of delay instead of March 13 !!!

My order is cancelled S20 Ultra 128 GB. When I asked support team they don’t have any reasons. They are asking again to order but I will not get Buds+ with that. Really Sucks

S20 ultra black UK. Pre ordered direct from sammy the day after the launch event. Got a text from sammy today to say its delayed but I’ll receive a few days later than expected. To be fair they will be sending me a 50 quid voucher in next 72hrs as compensation

I hope Samsung releases something along the lines of deep fusion tech…like the rumours from last year. I wish Samsung gives a fitting image processing algorithms as anything else would be an insult to such great hardware.

That is atleast an option. In India, they are not even releasing the 512 GB model. It’s not even a choice for us. Also, they aren’t even selling the 3.5mm to usb type c dongle.

I went to Best Buy here in the States to Pre-Order The Ultra 512GB Black to get my 200.00 credit from Samsung and was told they ran out of stock at all locations including Verizon. The next day when it officially went on sale it was miraculously available again. I refused to buy it since they scammed me out of my pre-order promotion

I got a call on Monday from Samsung about my online pre-order. Seems that Cosmic Gray option was not available until May but they did offered switching my order to the Black option. My order is now in Preparation so should be arriving soon.

Probably they didn’t expect so much orders for the 512GB one and 128GB is still available everywhere.

Delays in UK. You can’t even order the 512 version on the Samsung website

they are delaying in UK too – is because of the camera issues and them trying to work on some further updates before releasing to wide public

Samsung CZECH clearly announced on their official website that availability of 512/16GB version will be in May 2020 so it’s not surprising. Release date of 128/12GB should be this Friday 13th of March.

“Dostupné od května” means available since May. 2nd official distributor in Czechia which can supply S20 ultra 512/16GB is also mentioning few weeks availability since May. In my opinion it’s caused only by late starting of production of 16GB memory chips.

Already replied to you, but it’t waiting for approval due to inserted link to Czech Samsung website. Btw it was clearly communicated by Samsung CZ since 17.2.2020, therefore I pre-ordered lower specs 128/12GB as not willing to wait till May and pay such a high price. Even I personally hate and don’t understand basic 128GB for ultra version with ultra price tag.
