samsung galaxy note 5 first look aa (39 of 41)

Looking to get yourself a brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 or Galaxy S6 Edge+? You know these phones will be hot, and with the release coming up this Friday, August 21st, everyone is looking to sign up for those pre-orders before stocks run out.

But what if your carrier is not holding any pre-orders yet? Such was the case with T-Mobile, but the carrier decided to surprise us with an even better treat. Magenta is skipping pre-orders altogether and will go straight to direct sales.


T-Mobile CEO John Legere took it to Twitter to give us the good news. You can put your name to a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and/or a Galaxy S6 Edge+ starting tomorrow, August 18th. Sales start at 6 AM Pacific, so make sure you have your credit card ready!

As we had already heard, T-Mobile will be selling the Note 5 at $699.99 for the 32 GB version or $779.99 for the 64 GB one. Of course, you can get these on their respective installment plans. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ will cost $779.99 for the 32 GB version, or $859.99 for the 64 GB handset. And don’t forget you can also score a year of Netflix service if you get one of these smartphones from T-Mobile (read the details here)!


Legere goes on to mention that the devices will be “shipped ASAP”. We are not quite sure what that means, but it can be assumed you will at least have your phone by Friday… hopefully. Who is signing up?! If you still aren’t sure, you can learn more about these handsets by checking out our Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ hands-on posts.
