AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile have begun shipping Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge preorders to customers days before both smartphones get officially released on April 10.
The old saying "the early bird catches the worm" certainly applies to U.S. customers who preordered Samsung's new flagship Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile customers who placed preorders for either the Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge will be delighted to know that they will receive their new smartphone ahead of Samsung's official April 10 release date.
Verizon was the first U.S. carrier to announce its Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge preorder plans, but the carrier's April 1 preorder date came days after AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile began accepting preorders for the new handsets.
Verizon's late start appears to be AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile's gain, as new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge owners took to Reddit to boast that they have either already received their new devices or the smartphones are on the way, with most expected to be delivered on April 7.
At this point, there has been no word from Verizon on its plans to ship its Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge early, and it's very likely that Verizon customers who preordered the smartphones will receive the handsets on Samsung's official April 10 release date.
As a reminder, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge share identical specs, which include 5.1-inch 2560 by 1440 quad-HD displays, and in the case of the S6 Edge, it features a unique dual-edge display, which will cost users more.
Each device is using a Samsung Exynos octa-core processor, has 3 GB of RAM, a high-end 16 megapixel rear camera with OIS (optical image stabilization) and a 5 megapixel front-facing shooter for video chat and selfies. Both smartphones run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box and include 32 GB, 64 GB or 128 GB of internal storage. Unlike previous Galaxy S flagships, the S6 and S6 Edge have been designed using premium materials like metal and glass, which also means they no longer include microSD expansion slots or a removable battery.
