T-Mobile once again pushes the envelope for its Galaxy S10 unboxing video

There are a lot of things that T-Mobile is known for, including its outspoken CEO John Legere. The carrier and its content director Desmond Brown also have a reputation of producing the most unique and bizarre unboxing videos. For example, one of the more milder videos was produced last August for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. In that unboxing, Des (as Brown is known) took the phone on a long road trip to see who would last longer, him or the 4000mAh battery powering the device.

Today, with the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, Des and a team of three professional skydivers took all three phones up to an altitude of 13,000 feet. Each skydiver jumped out of the plane with one of the new phones in hand. The pair with the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ got together about 5,500 feet up to use the new Powershare feature by putting the phones back to back.

Powershare is Samsung's name for reverse wireless charging. This means that a Galaxy S10e, Galaxy 10 or Galaxy S10+ model can help charge a Qi-compatible phone by placing it together back-to-back with the Samsung unit. This will also work to charge up the new Samsung Galaxy Buds wireless earphones. The charging process is slow, and drains the battery of the Galaxy S10 model being used like a Qi wireless pad. This feature could come in handy at times, although the slow charging speed does limit its usefulness.

T-Mobile already has a deal on the new models. Pre-orders start tonight at 9pm PT (12:01am Thursday morning ET).
