T-Mobile certainly knows how to draw attention to themselves, whether it be their mobile plans, their outspoken CEO, or their unboxing videos, which in the past we have seen them do all kinds of crazy stunts like unboxing the HTC 10 while at 10,000 feet. The company also did an unboxing of the Galaxy S7 last year underwater.

So with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8, it looks like the carrier has decided to take things to the next level. For starters T-Mobile’s Des has returned underwater once again for the Galaxy S8’s unboxing, but this time Des will be surrounded by sharks while he unboxes the handset (from the safety of a shark cage).


The unboxing shouldn’t really reveal any surprises since we all know what the handset looks like and what kind of accessories it comes bundled with, such as a pair of AKG headphones that comes with every Galaxy S8/S8+ handset. We suppose to a certain extent apart from it being a crazy stunt, the underwater unboxing of the handset also serves to highlight how the Galaxy S8 has an IP68 rating when it comes to water and dust resistance.

The handset is expected to officially go on sale on the 21st of April and are currently available for pre-order from various carriers.
