Samsung’s virtual Unpacked event is scheduled for August 5th, and we expect to see the Galaxy Note 20 announced, along with a few other devices. If you’re sold on the Note 20 after seeing rumors, the extremely brief official teaser above, and seeing the phone’s design leak extensively on Samsung’s Russian site, you can place a reservation for “the next Galaxy” over at Samsung’s site. Doing this won’t cost anything — it’ll just put you in line for preorders once those open up, which will likely happen at the conclusion of its Unpacked event.
I’d recommend reserving one even if you’re still deciding whether to follow through with a preorder. If you reserve before August 4th, then place a preorder once it becomes available to do so, you’ll get a $50 voucher valid to use on “wearables, tablets, PCs and select accessories” available at Samsung’s online store (that voucher expires on Black Friday, so you could rack up some good deals if you keep it until then). It won’t make buying the Note 20 any cheaper, but it’s a nice incentive given that it won’t cost you anything extra. Reserving requires your name, email address, zip code, and selecting whether you want an unlocked device or one tied to your preferred carrier.
Samsung usually has some great preorder incentives to stack onto this. For last year’s Note 10, Samsung offered at least $100 in gift cards and up to $600 in credit if you trade in your old phone.
