The official launch date for the Samsung Galaxy S6 is Friday, April 10, but that's not stopping carriers like Sprint from shipping phones early.
Sprint, as it would turn out, has opted to follow down the path of T-Mobile and start shipping the Samsung Galaxy S6 early. Though while T-Mobile's been shipping at least some of the Galaxy S6 pre-orders since last week, Sprint will start shipping theirs on Monday, April 6.
Samsung GS6 starts shipping Monday! Pre-order now to be among the first to get yours. http://t.co/JItKnSad1p— Sprint (@sprint) April 3, 2015
In-store availability for all carriers is still set for April 10, and we've yet to see any indication from any other carrier that they're going to start shipping their phones early as well. Then again, T-Mobile and a newly-rejuvinated Sprint are something of the rebels in the U.S. carrier market, so it's no surprise to see their larger and less feisty competitors opting to stick with the schedule (at least so far).
