Samsung opens up pre-order notifications for the Galaxy S20

Samsung typically allows customers to “reserve” their spot in line to purchase new devices. As the launch of the Galaxy S20 series approaches, Samsung has done just that. You can now sign up to be notified the instant the pre-orders open up for your preferred Galaxy S20 model.

To sign up, you will be asked to provide your first and last name, email address, and zip code. You will also be able to select your preferred carrier: unlocked, Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or US Cellular. Keep in mind that this isn’t truly a “reservation” to buy the device. It simply means you will be notified immediately when the Galaxy S20 pre-orders open, so be ready to put down some money.

One interesting tidbit of information from the reservation page: it says “Delivery by March 6.” That’s nearly a month after the Galaxy S20 devices will be announced at Unpacked, which is longer than Samsung’s typical wait period. We’re also expecting Samsung to reveal the Galaxy Z Flip at Unpacked, but that device will likely have a special pre-order process.

For those who haven’t been keeping up with the onslaught of news, we will be seeing the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G. The Galaxy S20 and S20+ will have 5G variants. You can check out the full (rumored) specifications in the chart below.
