EE is also the only UK network which is rolling out Cat 9 connectivity, meaning on EE, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ users will enjoy the fastest download speeds available in the UK.

As a limited time offer, EE is providing a free 64GB memory card with any Galaxy S8 and S8+ purchased on a 4GEE Max plan. What’s more, customers who pre-order the Galaxy S8 by 17:00 on 18th April will receive their handset EIGHT days before the official launch.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are on the cutting-edge of innovation, from a stunning Infinity Display to enjoy BT Sport in crystal clear clarity, through to an exceptional camera so adventures can be shared on-the-go across EE’s expansive 4G network, keeping people connected in more places. EE is unique in its commitment to covering 95% of the UK’s geography with superfast 4G by 2020.

Customers wanting to experience the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ before they pre-order can do so in EE stores nationwide from 30th March.

Sharon Meadows, Director of Devices at EE, said: “Samsung’s Galaxy handsets are amongst the most hotly anticipated by our customers, and with good reason as they’re packed with the latest innovation. If you want to get the most from the new Galaxy S8 - you really need to pair it with the best network.
