T-Mobile Treating Early Galaxy S8 Adopters Very Well by Shipping Them Their Handsets Way Before Launch Date
Just like it did with the Galaxy S7, T-Mobile is treating its loyal customers like kings by shipping them their Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ units well before the official launch date, which happens to be April 21. Today is definitely a good day to be a T-Mobile customer.
T-Mobile Originally Set Expectations of Shipping Galaxy S8 Starting From April 19, But It Is Way Ahead of Schedule
T-Mobile hinted that it would be shipping handsets to early adopters of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ before the official launch date, and we’re not so sure that if T-Mobile was even aware that it would end up becoming this efficient with shipments of Samsung’s flagship. Heading over to Android Forums, one user displays a screenshot showing that his devices have been shipped today, meaning that T-Mobile is commencing operations five days earlier than when it intended to.
“It's well before the official launch date, but T-Mobile just shipped my Samsung Galaxy S8 and my Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus as well.”
The customer also reveals that those who pre-ordered the smartphone would get the following items in the bundle, but that would also require that they pay an additional sum for it.
“Samsung Gear VR with controller and some Oculus Content. There is also an offer for an additional 256GB MicroSD card and premium AKG headphones for $99, but I never saw this option when placing my order, so wondering exactly what versions I actually purchased!”
As for the pricing, T-Mobile is selling the regular 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 for $750, or $30/month for a period of two years. Both phones come with 64GB of internal memory coupled with some of the most powerful components to be found in a smartphone.
Samsung has also been praised for its Infinity Display on the Galaxy S8, and the screen itself melts towards the side and gives a great first impression of a wraparound panel.
Do you guys believe that other carriers and services should also move with the same pace as T-Mobile? Let us know your thoughts right away.
