samsung galaxy s7 first look aa-9

Update (March 1st): After receiving shipment notifications from T-Mobile just yesterday, many customers were obviously excited that they may receive their new Galaxy S7 before the official release date given by Samsung. However, T-Mobile had been silent on the matter, so no-one could be quite sure if these emails were accurate or just being sent out in preparation of the release date.

It turns out that the shipment notices were on point, as some Galaxy S7 units have already made their way into lucky customers’ hands. T-Mobile’s Twitter account has also piped up and responded to a question about the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge delivery dates, stating that “the official launch date is 3/11 and we’re working to get them out as quickly as possible. You may even get it before.” Furthermore, a number of T-Mobile representatives have told expectant customers that the company is actively shipping out the S7 and S7 Edge as soon as possible.

Samsung Galaxy S7 owners have even begun posting up pictures of their new deliveries to tantalise us, and comment sections, including our own, suggest that more devices are heading out for delivery too. Enjoy your new phone T-Mobile customers. It looks like the rest of us will be waiting until the official March 11th release date.

The new Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are two of the best smartphones to come out in recent months, so it’s no wonder why folks are chomping at the bit to get their orders in. Pre-orders for both of these devices just began a few days ago, with the official launch not taking place until Friday, March 11th. That may be true if you pre-ordered a device from Verizon, Sprint or AT&T, but not T-Mobile. According to a few users on Reddit, T-Mobile has already begun shipping out Galaxy S7 and S7 edge pre-orders. The users who have spoken up on Reddit claim that their devices should arrive by the end of the week, which is just about a whole week before the official launch date. Not bad!

It’s not entirely clear as to whether or not Samsung has given the Un-carrier the OK to begin shipping these devices to users. Either way, it looks like T-Mobile customers will be getting their devices early, which definitely isn’t a bad thing.

Did you pre-order either the Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge? If so, let us know if you’ve received your shipping confirmation from any of the major carriers.
