It’s the final call for the Galaxy S23 series preorder reservations pledging, Samsung fans! Buyers who intend to add up to $100 in store credits on top of their Galaxy S23 Ultra, S23+, or S23 preorder bonuses when the phones hit the tape, can take a nonbinding reservations now and decide later!
The preorder reservation discount is $50, just like for the S22 series last year, but this time it can be doubled via a Galaxy Book 3 laptop purchase, the new series of notebooks from Samsung that sport 3K OLED screens, discrete RTX graphics, and the newest Intel processors to go with your new Galaxy S23 line phone.
The 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 the Galaxy S23 prices are likely 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 their predecessors.

It, however, tacked on free storage upgrades and would apparently allow you to grab a 512GB Galaxy S23 Ultra for the $1200 price of the 256GB unit, too. That’s before the generous trade-in offers which last year crept up to $500 for the oldie Note 10+ even, and more for the S-line predecessor.
Galaxy S23 Ultra preorder trade-in deals to expect
- $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 $1200 launch price point for the Galaxy S23 Ultra, unchanged from last year, is actually pretty sweet if you upgrade from anything but the S22 Ultra, given the mighty new 200MP camera sensor and the exclusive overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy chipset.
Even then, though, if you upgrade from a base 128GB S22 Ultra it will be worth the jump to a Galaxy S23 Ultra as it will now come with 256GB from the start, and a free upgrade by Samsung will quadruple your base storage for the same amount of money.
Knock $590 off from the price for the trade-in and the Buds Pro 2 at $229.99 value, and throw in at least $50 in preorder reservation bonus for a case or a fast charger, and you will essentially be paying just $330 for a fully kitted Galaxy S23 Ultra with 512GB to store your newly smooth 8K 30 FPS video in!
