Galaxy S8 and S8+ will not have pesky carrier branding in the US

Home / News / Galaxy S8 and S8+ will not have pesky carrier branding in the US

Samsung started crafting gorgeous smartphones right from the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, and continued to improve the hardware design even further with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. However, the company used to ruin its design efforts in a way by slapping carrier logos on the devices. However, that seems to be changing this year with the Galaxy S8 and S8+.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ look nothing short of gorgeous, and they will also be the first Samsung smartphone to be launched in the US without any additional carrier branding (at least on the four big networks). This is akin to Apple’s iPhones which do not feature any form of carrier branding, be it their logos or any additional software or apps. Samsung has even removed its own logo from the front of the Galaxy S8 to make it look even better.

In comparison, the LG G6 still has carrier logos on its back. The next big step for Samsung would be to stop carriers from putting any of their apps or splash screens on its smartphones. Even better, it would be brilliant on Samsung’s part to roll out software updates to carrier variants of its smartphones from its own servers.

Unfortunately it still has ‘CE0618’, crossed-out-dumpster-logo, ‘manufactured in Vietnam’ etc. printed on the back. Whyyyyyy?!

T-Mobile hasn’t put logos on their Samsung phones for quite awhile now.

Same as Sprint. AT&T and Verizon were the only 2 still doing it. I guess since Samsung couldn’t put their own logo on the front of the device they finally decided enough is enough. And to that I say it’s about time. It’s about time that Samsung flexed a bit of their brand muscle. AT&T is even packaging the phones in the correct boxes. Unlike the Note7 which was packaged in those horridly cheap blue and white AT&T boxes…
