Yesterday,. Out with the old, in with the new, right? Actually, Samsung is keeping the S10 lineup, but it's lowered prices across the board. Result: Yesterday's flagships are today's deals. You stand to save as much as $200 on the three models.
However, those price cuts aren't effective just yet, and probably won't be until the. (Thankfully, there are already S10 deals to be had elsewhere -- see below.) Here's everything we know so far.
Old price: $749
New price: $599
Old price: $899
New price: $699
