Customers who pre-order the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus from Vodafone UK before April 19th can expect to receive their device by 20th April, which happens to be a Thursday. It should be noted that 20th April happens to be eight days before the official launch of the two handsets in the UK. If you would like to pre-order either handset, you may head to the official online store of Vodafone UK and do so.
