Samsung is offering a great deal on the Galaxy S10 before we even know how much it costs

But we pretty much know everything else about it.

Samsung isn’t unveiling the Galaxy S10 for another week, but the company already wants you to buy one. Head over to Samsung.com and you’ll see a giant banner promoting the Feb. 20 Galaxy S10 live stream with a new option to reserve one, save some money, and receive it by March 8.

You won’t actually be picking which model you want—Samsung needs to save something for release day—but it’s nearly certain that you’ll have your choice of three phones once the ordering system goes live. A torrent of leaks culminated this week with a full spec sheet for the three phones courtesy of GSM Arena, and from the looks of it, early adopters won’t be disappointed:

Galaxy S10e

  • Display: 5.8-inch OLED QHD 2280 x 1080
  • RAM: 6GB/8GB
  • Storage: 128GB/256GB
  • Main camera: Dual 12MP + 16MP ultrawide, Dual Aperture, OIS
  • Front camera: 10MP
  • Battery: 3,100mAh

Galaxy S10

  • Display: 6.1-inch OLED QHD 3040 x 1440
  • RAM: 6GB/8GB
  • Storage: 128GB/512GB
  • Main camera: Triple 12MP + 12MP + 16MP zoom/ultrawide, Dual Aperture, OIS
  • Battery: 3,400mAh

Galaxy S10+

  • Display: 6.3-inch OLED QHD 3040 x 1440
  • RAM: 6GB/8GB
  • Storage: 128GB/512GB
  • Main camera: Triple 12MP + 12MP + 16MP zoom/ultrawide, Dual Aperture, OIS
  • Battery: 4,100mAh

It’s also been heavily rumored that the S10 and S10+ will feature in-display fingerprint scanners while the S10e will have a side-mounted sensor. All three phones will reportedly feature the ability to charge another device wirelessly as well as sport Samsung’s new “Infinity O” display that has a hole in the top right corner for the camera.

The Galaxy S10 will likely come in three sizes.

If all that sounds like something you want, Samsung will let you reserve one right now. And you don’t have to pay full price for it either. Along with early-access and guaranteed delivery by March 8, Samsung will also give you a $50 credit towards accessories for your new phone and up to $550 when you trade in an eligible device. Phones receiving the maximum payout include the LG V40, Pixel 3 and 3XL, iPhone 8 and higher, and Samsung’s own Galaxy S9 and Note 9. That’s nearly $200 more than Apple will give you for an iPhone 8 Plus and $250 more than Samsung offers elsewhere on its site.

The only problem is, you won’t know exactly how much the S10 costs. Rumors have pegged the phones to have slightly higher starting prices than last year’s models, with the least-expensive S10+ topping a thousand dollars. The boosted trade-in values suggests that those rumors are accurate, but we won’t know for sure until Samsung tells us next week. The good news is you don’t actually have to commit to anything, so if the prices are too high, you can always balk on the purchase.

Samsung says the reservation promotion runs until February 20 at 11:59p.m. ET, with the pre-order period lasting from February 21 to March 7, with phones arriving on March 8.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
