Samsung recently announced its next Unpacked event will kick off on January 17, when the company is expected to reveal the new Galaxy S24 lineup. As usual, the company also simultaneously opened up “reservations” for preorders of its next Galaxy device, which grants you $50 in credit after supplying your name and email address on Samsung’s website.
There are a couple of caveats to keep in mind, though: first, you’ll have to place your preorder using the same email address after the devices are announced on January 17th. After that, you’ll have to follow through on the purchase, so make sure you have your credit card handy.
You also can’t use the $50 credit after making your purchase. Instead, the credit can only be used at the same time you purchase your reserved device — and no, you can’t use it to offset the phone’s cost. Instead, you can only use the credit toward other eligible products in Samsung’s online store. Samsung has yet to specify what those are exactly, but historically, people have been able to use the credit toward Samsung’s wireless earbuds and accessories like smartphone cases.
We can’t say for certain what new features the S24 lineup will boast. However, rumors suggest it’ll come equipped with the new on-device AI-accelerating Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chips, while the S24 Ultra might be getting an iPhone 15 Pro-like titanium build, an upgraded 50MP 5x telephoto camera, and 4K 120fps recording.
To find out if those rumors are true for yourself, come join us on Samsung’s livestream at 10AM PT / 1PM ET on the 17th when the company finally spills the beans.
