This is the last call for the Galaxy S23 series pre-order reservation commitment, Samsung fans! Shoppers who intend to add up to $100 in store credits on top of their Galaxy S23 Ultra, S23+, or S23 pre-order bonuses when phones hit the band, can take no-commitment reservations now and decide later!
The pre-order reservation discount is $50, just like the S22 series last year, but this time it can be doubled through the purchase of a Galaxy Book 3 laptop, the new laptop series from Samsung that sport 3K OLED displays, discrete RTX graphics, and the latest Intel processors to go along with your new Galaxy S23 phone.
Galaxy S23 prices would remain the same
- Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra price: $1199.99 (256GB)
- Samsung Galaxy S23+ price: $999.99 (256GB)
- Samsung Galaxy S23 price: $799.99 (128GB)
Speaking of pricing, in the US, Galaxy S23 prices are expected to remain unchanged, despite doubling the S23+ and S23 Utra base storage amounts to 256GB. In Europe, however, the Galaxy S23 family will be more expensive than his predecessors.

However, it added free storage upgrades and would apparently let you grab a 512GB Galaxy S23 Ultra for the $1200 price of the 256GB unit as well. That’s before the generous trade-in offers that soared to $500 last year for the older Note 10+, and more for the S line predecessor.
Galaxy S23 Ultra pre-order trade-in offers to be expected
- $590 for a Galaxy S22 Ultra
- $500 for a Galaxy S22+
- $390 for a Galaxy S22
- $440 for a Galaxy S21 Ultra
Will a Galaxy S23 upgrade be worth it?
The $1,200 launch price for the Galaxy S23 Ultra, unchanged from last year, is actually pretty sweet if you’re upgrading from anything other than the S22 Ultra, given the powerful new camera sensor. 200MP and exclusive overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform for Galaxy chipset.
Even so, however, if you’re upgrading from a base 128GB S22 Ultra, it’ll be worth upgrading to a Galaxy S23 Ultra as it will now come with 256GB from the start, and a free upgrade from Samsung will quadruple your base storage for the same amount of money.
Save $590 off the trade-in and $229.99 Buds Pro 2 price, and add at least $50 in pre-order reservation bonuses for a case or fast charger, and you’ll essentially only pay $330 for a fully featured Galaxy S23 Ultra with 512GB to store your newly smooth 8K 30 FPS video!
