T-Mobile will launch the Samsung Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+ tomorrow, skips pre-orders
While Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint will all launch the Samsung Galaxy Note5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ on August 21, the two smartphones will be released on T-Mobile - the nation's third largest carrier by subscriber count - starting tomorrow.

This past weekend, we came across reports revealing that Samsung's two new premium phablets are already starting to ship to lucky AT&T customers who have pre-ordered the Galaxy Note5. More recently, other reports of early pre-order shipments surfaced online, this time from Verizon customers. However, despite these early shipments, the Galaxy Note5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ are not officially available for online orders from any of the two carriers.

T-Mobile, a carrier that has not announced pre-orders for the Note5 and the S6 edge+, will open up orders for the two Samsung phablets tomorrow at 6AM PST. T-Mobile CEO John Legere announced the move on Twitter, along with the mention that orders will start shipping ASAP.

T-Mobile is not allowing the hype - limited as it is - to slow down after Samsung's recent Unpacked event. Although the new Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ will not get mistaken for anything besides premium products, it looks like reception has been lukewarm generally speaking. 

If you're interested in learning more about Samsung's two new 5.7-inch phablets before T-Mobile opens up for orders tomorrow, make sure to check out our Note5 hands-on and S6 edge+ hands-on pieces, as well as the personal opinions of our team. One tiny caveat to T-Mobile's launch that should be mentioned is that those on the carrier's Jump! On Demand customers will have to wait until August 21 to get their hands on a new Samsung phablet.
