Preorders for Samsung’s new Galaxy S20 phones are now live. First announced last week, the S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra won’t be available in stores until March 6, but Samsung just began taking preorders for all three models.
If you’ve already placed a reservation for a Galaxy S20, you should have received an email from Samsung asking you to complete your order. If you didn’t place a reservation, Samsung currently says that if you place an order now, your phone will arrive on March 6.
The foldable Galaxy Z Flip, which Samsung announced at the same time as the S20 trio, quickly sold out after the company started taking orders on Valentine’s Day. Samsung expects to have more Galaxy Z Flips in stock soon, and carriers are still taking orders with ship dates a few weeks out. Keep checking the links below if you’re set on finding a Z Flip.
