The next Samsung Galaxy smartphone – almost certainly the Galaxy S22 – is now available for reservation via the official Samsung site.
Not only that, but you’ll get a neat little $50 bonus Samsung store credit on the house if you register your interest right now. From what we can see, you’ll get this as soon as device pre-orders open – which is on February 9th.
Interestingly, Samsung hasn’t ‘confirmed’ that it’s the Galaxy S22 yet. Instead, it’s simply offering a fifteen-second teaser trailer showing off two blacked-out devices on a smokey grey backdrop. Let’s not beat around the bush, though – we’ve seen the Galaxy S series release at this time every year for many years now, so it would be a real surprise if it wasn’t the S22.
It’s definitely a little odd – and some would say risky – to reserve a device without even seeing it first, but we think it’s actually not a bad idea. We’ve seen availability issues with other recent high-profile Android releases (Pixel 6 Pro), and it’s an excellent option for consumers if they want to guarantee they’ll get a device. Plus, you won’t have to plop any money down here until pre-orders go live and you’ve had a chance to check the phone specs out.
Samsung Galaxy S22 reservations now available
Credit-wise, $50 isn’t a huge amount but it’s enough to contribute to a number of accessories, earbuds, or even smartwatch purchases via the Samsung Store. It’s highly likely that the official store will also have competitive trade-in rates when the devices actually release to supplement your savings even further.
