This year, Samsung is offering the same preorder reservation bonus for the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, and Galaxy S23 Ultra that it did for the S22 family when its Unpacked event was first announced. However, if you purchase two smartphones, the $50 discount, on top of all Galaxy S23 promotions and preorder bonuses, increases to $100. Therefore, in 2023, the offer will be much more substantial!
Just like last year, if you reserve a Galaxy S23 Ultra right now, you’ll receive $50 in addition to all the incredible discounts Samsung will offer to early adopters who preorder by the release date of February 17. The $100 discount, however, appears to be only if you reserve an S23 line handset with an upcoming Galaxy Book device that will likely also appear during Samsung’s February Unpacked event.
The preorder reservation discount is in addition to all other freebies, including the rumored free Galaxy Buds Pro 2 and free cases, the best trade-in offers in the business, and exclusive colors and storage capacities that can only be obtained from Samsung. This also applies to the Verizon, T-Mobile, or AT&T Galaxy S23 models purchased from it.
In addition to the finest trade-in values you would receive by making a reservation now and purchasing an S23 phone directly from Samsung, the company is quick to highlight all the advantages:
- Guaranteed trade-in credit when buying several Galaxy phones, including the maximum trade-in value for Galaxy smartphones and trade-in credit for phones with cracked screens.
- Students, armed forces members, first responders, and workers of corporate partners are also eligible for additional savings under the Samsung Offer program.
- Affirm offers 0% APR financing with no down payment and four equal installments.
- Samsung Care+ Extended coverage includes:
- Device protection for drops, spills, and mechanical breakdown
- 700+ Samsung-certified sites offer same-day screen repairs for cracked screens.
- Replacements start the following business day.
- For setting up a new device, transferring material, and connecting to other devices, Samsung offers experienced help available around the clock.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 series prices may fall by the same.
|Galaxy S23 series model||Price (base storage)|
|Galaxy S23 Ultra||$1199 (exp.) for the 256GB model|
|Galaxy S23+||$999 (exp.)|
|Galaxy S23||$799 (exp.)|
The Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra prices are likely to stay the same in the US, according to the leaked Galaxy S23 line prices in Korea, which equate to $1250 for the S23 Ultra when the currency rate is taken into account. Additionally, there were reports in Korean media that the phones would cost slightly more locally owing to component inflation. Typically, the price tags in Samsung’s home territory are slightly higher in dollar equivalent than they wind up being when the phones land in the United States.
We have great hopes for a $799 Galaxy S23 beginning price, $999 for the Galaxy S23+, and the sweet $1199 Galaxy S23 Ultra price point for the base storage models because Samsung improved the S Pen-equipped S22 Ultra while maintaining the same pricing. Given that 128GB devices may only be available in a few nations, this is a fantastic value. For the same price as last year’s 128-gigabyte starting storage, much of the world, including the US, is likely to receive 256GB of storage.

To help you decide whether to place a preorder reservation for an S23, S23+ or the Ultra, let’s explore the alleged Galaxy S23 series specifications. All three phones would be powered by a Samsung-exclusive overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
The fastest processor and 5G modem available for Android phones will be added to Samsung’s 2023 flagship line-up, as shown in the S23 series specifications below. According to benchmarks, this processor is on par with Apple’s A-series chipsets.
The Galaxy S23 and S23+ should also come at the exact costs because the LTPS display technology is expected to remain with a broader refresh rate range. This is true even though they have bigger batteries and more basic storage.
However, Samsung has gone above and beyond for the Galaxy S23 Ultra, boosting the specs gap over its siblings beyond the new 200MP camera to the point that it predicts that most sales will go to its finest 2023 phone now and for a good cause. You can also make up the price difference using the S23 presale reservation bonus you may get here.
