Getting pretty frustrated with this delay now and puts me off pre-ordering again in the future if I could have just gone into a retailer on release day and gone home with one instead - except the pre-order pricing was better with the storage upgrade etc. Did order a week after the announcement (although still only halfway through the pre-order period) so obviously didn't expect to be first in line but did think pre-ordering meant you would receive it around the release day. Can only get the same copy and paste response about there being overwhelming demand and they can't give an ETA. They certainly took the money at the time of ordering though. From a quick google it looks like this happens every year with the online exclusives so should have just gone with one of the standard colours.

 

It will arrive eventually but just getting a bit of FOMO now lots of people have them. Going on a little holiday for the first 2 weeks of March so hoping to have it for the good camera by then.

I ordered mine on 2nd Feb.  The order status has changed from `Picking` (I think, can't quite remember if that was it said) to yesterdayt `Awaiting Dispatch` and then `Start shipping from 13/02/24 Standard Delivery`.

Which did you order? I ordered on 24/01. Just checked and it's finally moved from "preparing order" to "awaiting dispatch" and says "start shipping from 12/02/24 standard delivery." Maybe there's hope for next week!

I ordered the blue online special with 512gb last Sunday 4th February and I just received email to say it has been dispatched ,probably will expect on Monday unless Saturday delivery and lucky. So your order cant be too far away.

I've taken oft the screen protector I tried spigen and one from jb hi fi I think spend close $80 on them after going threw numerous you tube videos I still had trouble with the fingerprint sensor not recognizes it

I just gave up gone with nothing

https://youtu.be/xzVfomSSaOM?si=nIKfUuZOeUB5gl7F
After watching this and putting sand on the glass and no marks

the best thing since screen protector removal was screen glare gone this is ground breaking and better than slice bread lol jokes aside

I ordered the Titanium Blue.  

 

Update: I've received an email from Samsung saying it has been dispatched and the status is now "on the way". 

 

It's kind of annoying (for everyone else) if I ordered pretty much last and I'm set to receive mine before others who have been waiting much longer.

Hmm, it's now changed from "start shipping from 12/02" to 13/02. Little bit miffed if people who ordered the same one 2 weeks after me are receiving them now but such is life I guess. Fingers crossed for this coming week.

Confirming my Titanium Blue 512Mb arrived this morning. 

 

Thank you @asifalinz1 for posting a recommendation for the amFilm screen protector - this was the easiest screen protector installation I've ever had and so far it's working flawlessly.

Also ordered this screen protector, along with couple of Spigen cases from Amazon, to take advantage of their free shipping to NZ with spending of US$49 on eligible items.

Just got the shipped email! Not home the next couple of days so assume I'll have to go to the courier depot the morning after attempted delivery to collect it. Then working from home Thursday and Friday so be able to set up during the day then.

You sir have the patience of a saint.

 

I would've thrown my toys out of the cot by now, haha.
