Samsung’s next major phone launch event is August 11th, and getting the new phones—including the brand's latest folding devices—is bound to be as much of a headache as it has been for every other in-demand product this year. From the Playstation 5 to the latest graphics cards and sneakers, bots and scalpers are snapping up everything popular to charge a premium on other sites.
Samsung is trying to make it a bit easier for real people to pre-order its new phones—with a bonus $100 trade-in credit to boot. To get the deal you just need to sign up to “reserve” your spot for free now so you can beat the line and pre-order when the phones are announced. You just put in your name and an email and they'll notify you when the phones are available—hopefully letting you beat the scalper rush.
In addition to the pre-order slot, reserving your spot now will include some notable bonuses, including:
- Up to $100 extra trade-in credit for your existing phone.
- A free year of Samsung’s Care+ service.
- An exclusive offer towards the new devices.
We have no idea what the "exclusive offer" will be, but the extra trade-in credit is excellent. We’d also highly recommend opting for some kind of repair service if you’re picking up any of the newest Galaxy phones—especially the Flip or Fold lines, since their unique screens are going to make them significantly more expensive to repair at a third-party store. I've also cracked every phone I've ever owned so, uh... take my word for it.
To access the offer, you only need to provide a name and email, though you can include some other information (such as the device you’ll be trading in) so you can check out even faster once the new devices are announced. Given how fast we've had to be to pre-order other devices like the PS5, you'll want to have that in place even if you're still on the fence about buying the new phones.
We don’t know anything about the new devices yet, especially price, but it’s free to sign up and you aren’t committed to pre-ordering anything. In addition, Samsung's tweet suggesting the latest Unpacked event will "unfold" is a pretty good hint at what's coming. Check out the reservation page and see the details for yourself and we’ll update you once we learn all about the new phones once they're announced on August 11th.
