T-Mobile is already shipping Samsung Galaxy S8 orders, as first spotted by Phandroid and Android Forums. The company already said the S8 and S8 Plus would arrive by April 19th — two days ahead of other retailers — but it’s possible they now could arrive even sooner. Easter might mess with deliveries slightly, but still, the shipments are imminent. The company shipped the Galaxy S7 early, too. T-Mobile’s selling the regular S8 for $750, or $30 / per month for two years. As a reminder, the S8 and S8 Plus won’t be in stores until April 21st, including at T-Mobile. You’ll be able to find it at Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, and Best Buy.
Nvidia's been enjoying a long and uninterrupted run at the top of the graphics card heap, and it just extended its lead with the new Titan Xp. For $1,200, the card offers the same Pascal GP102 GPU as the $5,000-ish Quadro P6000, with all 3,840 CUDA cores to play with. It also has much faster memory than the Quadro, bumping up from the 10GHz of last year's Titan to 11.4Ghz. Like the Titan X (which can now be had for around $1,000, if you can find it in stock), the Xp has 12GB of GDDR5X RAM.
Nintendo plans to produce at least 16 million Switch consoles in the financial year starting this April, reports The Wall Street Journal, which claims this represents a doubling of the company’s initial plans on the back of strong demand. The only official indication of Switch sales to date is that Nintendo planned to ship 2 million units this month following its launch on March 3rd, though a WSJ source claims the true number may be 2.5 million or more. If the 16 million figure is true, that would put the new console, which is a tablet-style device that is also designed to be used on a TV, well on course to outsell its predecessor, the disappointing Wii U.
Samsung is planning to launch its Galaxy S8 handset on March 29th, but we’ve already seen photos, videos, and even press images leak ahead of its debut. A fresh round of hands-on images have leaked today, and they give us a slightly better look at some big design changes Samsung is making to its 2017 flagship smartphone.Slash Leaks has provided some close up images of the new on-screen home button for the Galaxy S8, and a good idea of just how small the front bezels are. They look incredibly small, which has clearly been aided by removing the physical home button from the front of the display. At the back of what is reportedly the larger Galaxy S8 Plus, you can see a separate sensor next to the camera that appears to be the fingerprint reader.
