It’s hard to wait for your brand new smartphone to arrive once you’ve placed a pre-order and are just counting down the days till it ships. Pre-orders for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge were opened on February 23 and the Samsung has declared March 11 as the official release date in 60 countries. However, it’s not uncommon to see carriers ship out units ahead of time, T-Mobile did it last year with the Galaxy S6 and it appears to be doing it again with the Galaxy S7.
Shipping notices have started to arrive for several T-Mobile customers who pre-ordered the flagship handsets from Magenta. Several reddit users reached out to T-Mobile through its official Twitter account and were told by representatives that devices that have already been ordered are being packed and getting ready to ship out on Monday, February 29. They may reach customers in a couple of days depending upon the shipping option they chose. If this is indeed true it would mean that customers would get their hands on the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge before the devices are even available in stores on March 11. Looks like several T-Mobile customers will receive the new flagships over the new couple of days, and they say Christmas only comes once a year.
