When Samsung takes the stage at its Unpacked event later this month, don’t even bother to pretend to be surprised. It knows that you know what’s looming on the horizon.
Samsung hasn’t exactly been shy about what could be unveiled at the upcoming February 20 event. The timing is right in line with the last few years, and the promotional image more or less spells it out.
There’s still one week to go before the Galaxy S10 line makes its formal introduction but don’t let that stop you from ordering one. That’s right, Samsung has already set up a mini-site for the phone that shall not be officially named.
Samsung’s website already tells us what it is willing to do in order to entice buyers of its “next Galaxy” Indeed, it promises customers up to $550 off the phone with trade-in of an eligible device. What’s more, the new phone will ship by March 8.
Placing a reservation gives you prioritization during a 72-hour window once the pre-orders kick off. It’s more or less a spot in a virtual line so if you don’t order during that time frame, you lose your spot and could miss out.
Interestingly enough, the website says “Not all Galaxy device versions are eligible for this offer.” There are at least three devices expected to debut at the Unpacked event, possibly four. Indications are that the Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, and an S10e will be unveiled with a 5G-compatible model looming somewhere in the distance.
If you’re ready to get a spot in line for the Galaxy S10, head to Samsung’s website and sign up. Those who do so will also receive a $50 instant credit toward accessories. You can also check to see the trade-in value of your current phone.
