Yes thanks @BrendonH s8+ pre ordered I went for orchid gray for a change from my black S7 edge is the 8 days early the 19th or 8 days before that do you think?


 

It releases on 28th So I would expect to get it on 20th. (Rota myself off that day. Perks of being the Manager and doing own rotas)

 

It does state on their pre-order site that if you order by 19th you get it 8 days early. So I guess 20th if you include next day delivery.

 

Don't really like Gray. And I was thinking black before blue anyway as the front is all black regardless of color option anyway to hide the sensors at the front.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus Launch

So everywhere is doing the 8 days early offer then.

 

Probably cheaper than bundling in a VR etc. (Don't want one them anyway)

 

I am disappointed with lack of Samsun Pay UK though. We were promised 2016 but I do believe its the UK banks holding this up.

 

Knowing my luck Barclays won't be supported as they decided not to support Android Pay.

Hi @Gigabit and @BrendonH

 

I will certainly find the information out in regards to 4G/WIFI calling asap.

 

Many thanks,

Re: Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus Launch

Can you also check about the software that will come with it.  Will it be subject to delays as seen on previous devices and will it receive the regular security updates.

 

This is a big thing for a lot of people and will sway my decision whether to get a Pixel or S8 or buy direct from Samsung or EE.

Hi @Bellyman

 

It looks like the S8 will be available with Android 7 Nougat and looks like Bixpy personal assistant will be on it too.

 

Cheers

@Bellyman can we not hijack my post with your tirade of update policy etc.

 

The S8 will come with the latest firmware as stated in the specificationstore of the phone.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus Launch

Just read Bixby won't support British English from launch.  Not a big issue i guess and no doubt updates will roll out thick and fast.

Afternoon Everyone!

 

Just to confirm WiFi Calling will be available on both direct & indirect versions of the Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus.

 

4G Calling will only be available on the Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus if purchased directly from EE.

 

Thanks - Karen. Smiley Happy
