Unpacked: Preorders for Galaxy S23 and Galaxy Book3 The Pro Hardware from Best Buy to Amazon, Best Buy, and Best Buy
We will be covering the big announcements as they happen at the launch of Unpacked on February 1st. In the meantime, you can reserve the company’s new hardware — for free and with no commitments — right now.
The S23 and S23 Plus are standard phones while the S23 Ultra is a premium phone. Samsung is currently offering free storage upgrades and up to $150 in Samsung credit when you preorder the 6.1-inch Galaxy S23, which starts at $799.99, or the 6.3-inch Galaxy S23 Plus, which starts at $999.99. You can get free storage and a $50 gift card with the purchase of the S23 or S23 Plus from Best Buy or Amazon. Best Buy has a deal that will end at 1AM on February 17th.
If you’ve been hoping to upgrade your smartphone or laptop, you’ll soon be able to get your hands on Samsung’s Galaxy S23, Galaxy Book3 Pro, and Galaxy Book3 The Pro Virtual Reality headset. If you want to take advantage of the ongoing promo before it expires, you need to act fast, because they are only going to last for a few hours.
We will support anyone who wants to wait for the full reviews before making a purchase. But in the meantime, we’ve compiled a list of where you can preorder (and where you can get the best value) for those who are less patient.
Galaxy S23 Review: A Small, Low-Gauge Smartphone without Too Big a Battery? Update February 1st, 5:38PM ET: More Credit Back from Samsung
The S23 may be the smallest and cheapest of this new class, but its larger battery and new processor are hoping to quell the power-hungry habits of last year’s S22. If you do not want a phone that is too big, it is likely the one to choose.
Update February 1st, 5:38PM ET: This post has been updated to reflect that Samsung is offering more credit back for purchases of the Galaxy S23 phones from its own site — $80 on the S23, $150 on the S23 Plus, and $150 on the S23 Ultra.
Of course, how the Ultra and its siblings perform in reality is something we’ve yet to fully test. In the meantime, check out our hands-on post for our first impressions, we will soon publish full reviews.
It is possible for you to purchase it with a 13th Gen Core i7 (Evo) processor and your choice of up to 16gb of RAM and 512GB of storage. The 14-inch model starts at $1,449.99 when you pre-order it with a 13th Gen Intel Core i7 from Best Buy and 16GB of RAM. There are some deals both retailers are offering that will help you offset that price. Best Buy is giving away a free upgrade to any of the 14- and 16-inch models, so you can get more storage and RAM for less. Meanwhile, the 16-inch model with the same amount of RAM and storage is on sale for $1,549.99 ($200 off) at Best Buy.
