The Samsung Galaxy S23 series hasn’t even been announced yet, but there’s already a way to register your interest in the next-gen Samsung Galaxy smartphone collection – and it’s via Samsung itself.
While the firm hasn’t confirmed that the S23 series will be the focus of the next Galaxy Unpacked event, it’s almost a given that we’ll see the new smartphones in a few short weeks.
To celebrate this, Samsung is offering the ability for those in the US to register their interest in buying the unnamed smartphone with a handy $50 discount, while UK fans can be entered into a draw to win a £1,000 Samsung Store voucher.
Here’s everything there is to know about registering your interest in the Samsung Galaxy S23 series ahead of its reveal early next month. For more on what to expect, take a look at the latest Samsung Galaxy S23 rumours.
When will the Samsung Galaxy S23 series be revealed?
Samsung has officially revealed that it’s set to hold its next Galaxy Unpacked event on 1 February 2023, with fans able to tune in from the Samsung website from 10am PT/1pm ET/6pm GMT.
While the launch of the S23 range is yet to be confirmed, the company has teased the reveal of the next Galaxy phone at the event. Given that previous entries in the Galaxy S line have launched in January and February, it’s almost certain we’ll be seeing the Galaxy S23 series on 1 February.

How much will the Samsung Galaxy S23 series cost?
There’s no official word from Samsung about just how much the new Samsung Galaxy S23 range might cost at launch in the US and the UK, we can look at the past few generations to get a rough idea of what to expect.
With that in mind, here’s how the regular models have lined up, starting with the most recent S22:
Samsung Galaxy S22 – $799/£769Samsung Galaxy S21 – $799/£769Samsung Galaxy S20 – $999/£899
There are also the Plus models to consider:
Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus – $999/£949Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus – $999/£949Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus – $1,199/£999
And finally, we have the Ultras, where we have seen a little more variation over the past few years:
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra – $1,199/£1,149Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra – $1,299/£1,149Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra – $1,399/£1,199
Judging by previous releases, it seems Samsung has largely settled on price points for the range and we doubt there will be drastic change with the S23 range – though inflation will likely mean prices go up a little compared to last year.
There is one leaker claiming that the S23 range could cost between $50-130 more than the S22 range based on leaked info from South Korean telecom SKTelecom, but it’s worth taking this with a pinch of salt for now.
Where can I pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S23 series in the US?
While the Samsung Galaxy S23 series is yet to be officially revealed, Samsung is allowing interested parties to register on the Samsung site to reserve a phone right now, with a $50 voucher to sweeten the deal.
We’ll continue to update this list with retailers offering Samsung Galaxy S23 pre-orders in the US as they appear.
Where can I pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S23 series in the UK?
While you can’t outright register your interest to buy one of the next Samsung Galaxy phones in the UK, the Samsung UK site is giving customers the opportunity to register interest for the Galaxy Unpacked event and sign up to a prize draw to win a £1,000 Samsung Store voucher – enough to buy one of the new phones outright, if rumours are to be believed.
We imagine that there will be plenty of other retailers and carriers offering the chance to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S23 range once it has been officially unveiled by Samsung, so check back in the coming weeks for more information on getting your hands on the latest smartphone range at launch.
