You can already order the new Galaxy S10… if you really trust Samsung

Samsung’s newest smartphone isn’t even out yet—the company is holding a launch event next week—but if you’re a true acolyte of the brand, you can already pre-order the next device, The Verge reported today (Feb. 12).

“We know you know what is coming soon,” Samsung says on a site it created for its next device, presumably hinting at the fact that so much about the forthcoming Galaxy S10 smartphone has leaked out ahead of its event. The company is offering customers up to $550 off a new Galaxy phone when they trade in an old device, along with a $50 credit for accessories, and guaranteed delivery of the phone by March 8, which presumably is when the device will go on sale. The website also suggests that the next Galaxy phone will be available on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular, as well as an unlocked device.

There have been a ton of leaks about the new Galaxy phones. It’s expected Samsung will release three devices with massive 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.4-inch displays, featuring fingerprint scanners built into the screens, huge batteries, and the ability to charge other devices wirelessly. But to order one of these devices now, you’d still be assuming that all these leaks are accurate to be dropping a lot of cash before Samsung has even confirmed any details. Rumors suggest the devices will cost between $700 and $1,200 in the US, or about €750 to €1,000 for European markets (link in German).

But if you’d rather wait to see exactly what Samsung has in store before reserving your next phone, Quartz will be in attendance at Samsung’s event on Feb. 20 in San Francisco, so stay tuned.
