Samsung Galaxy Note 7 shipping ahead of schedule in at least one European country
In fact, the strong demand for the Galaxy Note 7 forced the South Korean company to adjust the release date of the smartphone in many European countries. Although the phablet should have been made available in late August, many customers have been informed that the device won't arrive until the first week of September.
Germany is one of the countries that didn't got any delays, at least until now, so the Galaxy Note 7 pre-orders should still ship on August 30, as initially confirmed by Samsung.
But it looks like many customers who pre-ordered the Galaxy Note 7 have already started to receive their units. Most of the smartphones delivered by Samsung in Germany come from the same warehouse in the Netherlands.
Furthermore, a little bit of investigation revealed all shipped devices have something in common: they pack 64GB storage and are Black Onyx. Also, all customers who receive their pre-ordered Galaxy Note 7 units opted for the same free gift: the Gear VR.
This leads us to believe that Samsung has a surplus of Black Galaxy Note 7 units, so it can easily fulfill all pre-orders and still have some stock left for launch. However, the Silver and Blue Coral version might be in short supply, as Samsung confirmed it has temporary issues fulfilling these pre-orders.
Customers in Germany should know that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 pre-orders are scheduled to begin on August 30, but the smartphone won't be available for purchase at retail stores across the country until 3 days later on September 2.
