Verizon and T-Mobile already shipping the Galaxy Note7
Samsung Galaxy Note7 is expected to hit the market later this week, more precisely on August 19th. However, it is not a first time to see that various carriers begin shipping the first units before the official launch date. This time, we heard about Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile customers who were notified their new Samsung phablets are already headed their way and would arrive before the 19th.
Last year, T-Mobile shipped the first Galaxy S6 units before the official launch date. Earlier this year, they did the same with the Galaxy S7. Now, more customers who pre-ordered the Galaxy Note7 from Magenta are being charged (this meaning the orders have been processed) and some of them also received the shipment notification emails.
Verizon Wireless customers also received shipment notifications and tracking numbers via email, and some of them have the delivery scheduled for August 17th or 18th. An unlocked international version Galaxy Note7 is also available for pre-order on Amazon in blue, black, or silver. Its price is $959 USD, comes with free shipping, but apparently without warranty.
