Samsung’s latest flagship devices the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra could be in the hands of customers much earlier than expected with deliveries already taking place in Australia.

EFTM reader Alex in Queensland contacted us last night to advise that he had received a “shipment notification” and today, the parcel arrived:

EFTM understands this is not an error, Samsung’s strategy in 2020 has seen devices released into retail for display purposes so that Note fans and prospective customers can see the device, and it seems clear Samsung is happy to push actual pre-orders into the hands of customers early.

Surprise and Delight I think they call it.
