FREEBIE ALERT: The all-new Samsung Galaxy S22 smartphones are available for preorder through AT&T as of Feb. 9. You’ll receive $800 off any device across the lineup when you trade in a Galaxy Note, S, or Z series phone, which would mean getting the 128GB S22 for free (normally $799.99). Plus, score a free storage upgrade through Feb. 24.


Samsung’s new flagship smartphones are here, and you can reserve one for free if you play your cards right.

Announced at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event Wednesday with the help of (checks notes) Bridgerton‘s Queen Charlotte, the S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra are set to debut on Feb. 25 starting at $799, $999, and $1,199, respectively.

AT&T reigns supreme as far as preorder offers go: As of Feb. 9, you can trade in any Galaxy Note, S, or Z series phone from any year (and in any condition) for $800 off your choice of the three new smartphones with an installment plan. Yes, that means you’d be getting the entry-level S22 for free.

As if that weren’t enough, AT&T will also double your new S22’s storage for free (from 128GB to 256GB) so long as you get your preorder in before Thursday, Feb. 24. We’ll burn for that.

Mashable tech reporter Alex Perry reports that the 6.1-inch S22 and the 6.6-inch S22+ sport AMOLED displays with a 120Hz refresh rate and three rear camera lenses (including a 10MP telephoto lens) featuring new auto-framing and nighttime portrait modes. They’re both archetypal Galaxy S devices, while the premium S22 Ultra pulls from Samsung’s late Note lineup with its embedded S-Pen slot. It also has a 6.8-inch AMOLED 120Hz display and a beefier camera setup with a 12MP ultra-wide lens, a 108MP wide lens, and a pair of 10MP telephoto lenses.

All three phones bring 5G support, though you’ll have to splurge on the S22+ or S22 Ultra if you want yours to work with the new WiFi 6E standard.

UPDATE: Feb. 9, 2022, 12:08 p.m. EST Verizon is offering the same Samsung Galaxy S22 trade-in/upgrade deal as AT&T, but the 128GB model was sold out there at the time of writing.
