Bad news if you were looking to snap up Samsung’s sensational budget smartphone, the Galaxy M31: the device appears to have sold out.
The recently launched smartphone was an exclusive to Amazon U.K., but the handset is now out of stock on the site, with the device listed as “currently available” with no information on a date when it will be back in stock.
There is one version of the handset available from a third-party reseller on Amazon, but the price has been hiked to £299 ($390) – a significant increase on the £220 ($290) price that it was selling for on Amazon only last week.
A Google search reveals a couple of lesser-known stockists, but it’s not clear quite how they managed to get hold of the handset or whether they have anything other than a handful of units.
The Galaxy M31 is a 6.4in device, with a superb 1,080 x 2,340 super AMOLED screen, four cameras and two SIM-card slots. By far its most impressive feature is its astounding battery life, which has reached three full days of usage in my tests this week, thanks to its massive 6,000 mAh battery and mid-range processor.
It’s one of the most impressive budget handsets I’ve ever seen and has won a series of five-star reviews, which likely explains why the handset appears to be in such high demand.
Samsung has been approached for comment on whether the handset will be restocked, but had yet to reply at the time of publication.
