Lucky Samsung Galaxy S7 buyers report early deliveries

It seems some people who have ordered the new Samsung Galaxy S7 are receiving notice of an early delivery.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge were announced just over a week ago, and pre-orders opened up soon after on February 23 ahead of the official March 11 release date.

However, a number of customers are reporting that they have received notification of an early delivery. In particular, a number of T-Mobile customers over in the US have reported on Reddit that they been sent shipping notices for their new phones. This means that they could be with them over the next few days – more than a week before release day.

That’s been trumped by one European customer, who has posted an unboxing video of their own Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. That’s right, they’ve received it already.

While the rest of you wait impatiently for you own, annoyingly bang-on-time deliveries, let’s remind people of what you’ve got to look forward to.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 sports a similar but fuller design to last year’s Samsung Galaxy S7, and sports a much faster Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8 CPU and a 12-megapixel camera that looks like being a revelation in low-light.

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will sport a larger 5.5-inch display with, of course, those distinctive dual-curved edges.
