Cool smartphones that didn’t launch in SA

A few of 2012’s interesting smartphone releases didn’t make their way to South Africa (yet)

From the rumour-mongering around the Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5 to their eventual launch and fresh rumour-mongering around the Samsung Galaxy S4, 2012 has been a smartphone-filled year.

As has become the norm, this past year saw a gamut of smartphone announcements and releases from the world’s top manufacturers.

For the most part South Africans have had a good year in terms of receiving the latest and greatest smart devices within a short period after they launch internationally.

However, a few devices that are available elsewhere did not make it to our shores at all.

These are some of the more sought-after smartphones South Africans didn’t have the option of buying through official channels in 2012:
