Reminder: the Galaxy S8 shipping date is April 18, exactly one week from now


Heads up! Those of you who pre-ordered their Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+  should start their 7-day countdowns today, for Samsung's hot new phones will start shipping as early as April 18 – exactly a week from now.

However, the early start is only for the USA, Canada, and South Korea. Pre-ordering customers there will receive and will be ready to use their new smartphones before April 21, which is the global shipping date for the Galaxy S8 and S8+. This means the rest of the world will have to wait just a little longer.

What's more, fifty thousand Galaxy S8 owners who bought their handsets before May 31 will be treated to a year-long warranty, covering both battery exchanges and 50% discounts for broken screen replacements.
