    ZDNet Article: ​Samsung to ship Galaxy S8 pre-orders on April 18 | ZDNet

    Pre-ordering customers in South Korea will get the phones on April 18, and will be able to use them before official sales begin on April 21.

    In the US and Canada, the phones will arrive as early as April 18. Those who get their phones before April 21 will also be able to use them right away, a Samsung spokesman confirmed.

    This announcement comes directly from Samsung Mobile.


    I'm still trying to figure out if that also goes for the preorders done through the carriers, or if it's just preorders done on Samsung's website. They also indicate "as early as the 18th" to probably protect themselves in case of a shipping backlash.

    Samsung had on their website pre orders arrive 8 days early. I assume this didn't include carrier orders but now it's only 3 days early?

    I really hope Best Buy sends theirs out early. Does anyone remember if their S7s came a little early last year?

    the S7 was supposed to release on March 11th or 12th last year. when T-Mobile customers started receiving them early, Best Buy responded. i picked up my S7 edge on Monday, March 7th last year.
