Home / News / The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ launch today

After waiting for what felt like an eternity, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have finally launched. Although, Samsung’s claiming the handsets are only available in four markets — Canada, Korea, Puerto Rico and the United States — but that’s not technically true, as customers all over the globe started receiving pre-orders as early as Wednesday.

The Galaxy S8+, on the other hand, packs almost identical internals, with the main differences being it has a larger 6.2-inch screen and a 3,500mAh cell.

Have my Galaxy S8 plus on pre-order and ordered Thin Fit from Spigen a week ago as they ship internationally. Idea was to receive Spigen case by the time S8 plus arrives.

Good news!

But most of the customers who pre-ordered from Samsung website directly have lots of problems. My order was “cancelled” today at 4AM. Wonderful news to wake up to!!
Its still “Preparing Order for Shipment” according to Samsung website. Two different operators from Samsung Support told me two different things.

Kind of surprised that this issue was not a “news” in Sammobile.

I also preordered on the Samsung site and although they didn’t cancel my order they also didn’t ship me my S8+ either. My order also shows the status “Preparing Order for Shipment”. Strangely the site states that my $100.00 ecard you got when ordering the S8 as being DELIVERED even though I have not received it. I’m a little depressed over this turn of events. I emailed their customer support regarding all of this and I am anxiously awaiting their reply.
