If you’re hoping to upgrade your smartphone or laptop, you’ll soon be able to get your hands on Samsung’s Galaxy S23, Galaxy Book3 Pro, and Galaxy Book3 Pro 360. The devices will be widely available starting tomorrow, February 17. but you’ll need to act fast if you’re hoping to take advantage of Samsung’s ongoing pre-order promotions before they expire tonight at 3am ET / 12am PT.
Samsung’s Galaxy S23 series consists of three phones: the standard S23, the S23 Plus and the S23 Ultra. Samsung is currently offering free storage upgrades and up to $150 in Samsung credits when you pre-order the 6.1-inch Galaxy S23which starts at $799.99, or the 6.3-inch Galaxy S23 Plus, which starts at $999.99. Both Amazon And Best Buy also offer the free storage bump and a $50 gift card if you pre-order the Galaxy S23 for the same price, or a $100 gift card if you pre-order the Galaxy S23 Plus (Amazon, Best Buy). Keep in mind, however, that Best Buy’s deal expires on February 17 at 1am ET.
As for the 6.8-inch Galaxy S23 Ultra, it’s available with $150 in Samsung credit and a free memory upgrade when you order it directly from Samsung from $1,199.99. That credit can be used toward the purchase of one of Samsung’s new laptops or a handful of accessories, but you can’t use it to offset the price of the phone itself. If you prefer another retailer, Amazon And Best Buy also offer the aforementioned storage upgrade and a $100 gift card when you pre-order the Galaxy S23 Ultra for $1,199.99.
Samsung’s latest phones are faster than the S22 series thanks to a new Galaxy-optimized version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. Each S23 phone also has a larger battery and other incremental improvements, although only the Galaxy S23 Ultra comes with a stylus and a 200-megapixel main camera sensor.

On the laptop front, Samsung still offers a free memory upgrade and $50 in Samsung credit when you pre-order the 14-inch Galaxy Book3 Pro from $1,449.99 — at least until February 17 at 3 a.m. ET. Best Buy is offering the same deal until 01:00 ET on February 17. The same promo applies to the 16-inch Galaxy Book3 Pro 360, which is available for pre-order at Samsung And Best Buy starting at $1,899.99, and the upcoming Galaxy Book3 Ultra, which launches on February 22 and is available for pre-order from Samsung And Best Buy from $2,199.99.
All three laptops are powered by Intel’s 13th Gen Core processors and feature 1800p OLED displays with fast 120Hz refresh rates. However, the Galaxy Book3 Ultra, which can easily be seen as a rival to Apple’s latest MacBook Pro, has a large 16-inch screen and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 GPU.
