Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Z Flip: How to preorder Samsung’s latest phones


The Galaxy S20 lineup. 

Angela Lang/CNET

Samsung not only announced three Galaxy S20 phones on Tuesday, but the company also unveiled the Galaxy Z Flip, a foldable phone that takes the same design approach as the new Motorola Razr. Not to be outdone by a foldable screen, the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus and the Galaxy S20 Ultra all boast 5G connectivity, improved cameras, and a hole-punch display. 

The wait for the $1,380 Galaxy Z Flip wasn’t long — it’s available right now. That’s right, it launched just a few days after the event, on Valentine’s Day, no less. 

You can’t order the Galaxy S20 right now, but Samsung is accepting reservations. You don’t have to pay anything to reserve a phone — you just need to give your info and email address, and the reservation will essentially save your spot in line and ensure you get a phone on launch day. Preorders don’t start until Feb. 21, with orders arriving on March 6, the same day you can walk into a retail store and buy one.
