Unlocked Note 8 preorders directly from Samsung are also shipping early

Unlocked Note 8 preorders directly from Samsung are also shipping early
After carrier customers noticed that their Note 8 preorders have shipped much earlier than expected, those who ordered directly from Samsung will seemingly land perks other than the Samsung Gear 360 camera or the "Galaxy Foundation Kit" that consists of a Fast Wireless Charging Convertible plus a 128GB Samsung EVO+ memory card, too. A user boasts that their Note 8 preorder from Samsung.com is now listed as "shipped," and they might get the phablet as soon as tomorrow, if the planets align. 

Given that Samsung's official release date is September 15th, that would be ten days ahead of schedule. Eager fans often get their preordered phones 2-3 days earlier, but ten days would be a pretty impressive feat, and we can only imagine the pleasantly-surprised looks on those who might eventually see a Note 8 on their front porch this week. Did you preorder Samsung's finest last week?

Thanks for the tip, Sergio!

I ordered from Samsung and it is on the way.... Finally my year old wait is over. Best reason for ordering from Samsung is it is unlocked, and should not have carrier bloat. I hope that this is so.

I was going to FINALLY order an unlocked to use on Verizon in NY but I heard a few of the features like wifi calling, visual voicemail, etc. wouldn't work so I ordered the Verizon model.

Where did you see this? I'm mulling going unlocked so it'd be great to know what is lost versus gained. I don't care about VVM, I use Google voice. But wifi calling can be handy.

I think Skype can handle that WiFi calling. Dang, but you reminded me that ATT Wifi Calling wont be on the unlocked. Oh well, I did use that in certain situations. Back to Skype for that I guess.

I watched a ton of videos, asked a few of the better YouTubers I follow and read a bunch of articles too. It seems that the unlocked also get updates later too.

teddy stop bullsh!tting, you'll be "mulling" until the Note 9 comes out. You're not getting the Note 8, and your pretend act is getting tiresome.

Oh no. The unlocked version comes with all the preloaded and unremovable apps from VZW, ATT, Sprint, TMob, and Cricket. Did you not hear?

That leaves you about 450mb of storage on the device for loading your own apps.

:-D

And those who bought from Samsung will still get the phone before T-Mobile customers.

Many people who ordered from Samsung even on Day 1 haven't received it or even received any courtesy updates on what the delay is about. Everyone is complaining on Samsung's forums on how Samsung treats their customers.
