Unveiled in February at Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event, Samsung's latest phones are the Galaxy S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra -- successors to the Galaxy S21 and to the Galaxy Note series, which was discontinued late last year. It was pretty difficult to get your hands on one when they first hit shelves in February, but the stocking and backorder issues have improved significantly since then. Currently, you can find almost all colors and configurations in stock and available for purchase at most major carriers and retailers, though you may still encounter the odd configuration that's still on backorder.

The Galaxy S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra all feature several major camera improvements, including larger pixel sensors and Adaptive Pixel technology for improved nighttime photography and videos. There's an improved Portrait Mode, as well as a new Auto Framing feature that can detect and track up to 10 people in order to capture everyone in a photo clearly.

However, it's the Galaxy S22 Ultra that made the biggest splash. Samsung's top-of-the-line phone introduces the S Pen to the S series for the first time, paying homage to the now-canceled Note.

The S22 Ultra also features significant camera upgrades, including Samsung's largest pixel sensor ever, as well a number of raw photo tools for more comprehensive editing, and an advanced Super Clear Glass lens for smoother and crisper nighttime videos without flares. 

We'll take a closer look at all the details for each of the three flagship Galaxy S22 models and show you the best Galaxy S22 deals across the internet and in stores.

Both the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus are available in phantom black, phantom white, green and pink gold. The Galaxy S22 Ultra has a slightly different lineup: phantom black, phantom white, green and burgundy.

Best Galaxy S22 deals

You might have missed the preorder offers, but most carriers and retailers are offering some stellar deals on these new Galaxy phones, especially if you've got an older device you're looking to trade in. We've rounded up the best Galaxy S22 deals that you can shop for right now.

We will continue to update this page as new offers become available, so keep checking back if your carrier or preferred retailer is not listed below.

Samsung's site is the obvious place to buy the newest Galaxy S22 phones, because it offers all the device configurations and has multiple payment options. Samsung offers carrier and unlocked models so you can choose between buying the phone outright, through carrier payments or financing it through Samsung, depending on your preference.

Samsung is also known for offering perks, and we've collected those deals here for your consideration: Right now, Samsung is offering $250 off the S22 Plus and Ultra, and $125 off the base model S22 -- no strings attached. One of the only straightforward discounts you'll find out there at the moment. You can also save up to $640 with an eligible trade-in, scoring you the Ultra, for instance, for the low price of only $310. 

If you're also looking to get a tablet from the new Galaxy Tab S8 lineup, you'll be able to get up to $600 of trade-in credit on the Galaxy Tab S8, S8 Plus and S8 Ultra models when ordering from Samsung directly, as well as up to $100 of Google Play credits.

Most colors and configurations are ready to ship, though a few of the Samsung exclusive color variants are backordered at the moment, and won't ship for another three to four weeks.

If you don't want the headache of navigating carriers, plans and installment payments, you'll want an unlocked phone that you can purchase outright. Amazon has matched Samsung's discounts on its unlocked models, and right now you can save $125 off the S22, and $250 off the S22 Plus and S22 Ultra, including all colors and configurations. 

All models are currently in available, though some are low in stock, so you should consider ordering soon if you have your heart set on a specific configuration.

This time around, AT&T is getting far more aggressive with its trade-in offers on the Galaxy S22 devices. The carrier is matching Verizon's offer from last year and is accepting select phones in any condition as a trade-in. If you have any Galaxy Note, S or Z Series phone from any year, you can get $800 off the new Galaxy S22 devices, even if your trade-in is broken or doesn't turn on. 

With this promotion, you can get the base Galaxy S22 for free via qualifying installment plan credits. The credits take place over a 36-month period, and if you cancel service before the 36 months is over you'll have to pay the remaining balance. This means that you could technically pay as little as $0 for the Galaxy S22, under $6 per month for the Galaxy S22 Plus and about $11 per month for the S22 Ultra, but be aware that credits begin 90 days after purchase and require that you pay all taxes and associated fees on the retail price up front. 

All three Galaxy S22 models are available now and ship for free, with most colors and configurations ready to ship right away.

If you're a current Verizon subscriber or someone looking to make the switch to Verizon, there are some great discounts you can take advantage of. Both new customers adding a line, and current Verizon subscribers upgrading their current line can save up to $800 on any S22 model with an eligible trade-in and activation on a qualifying unlimited plan. 

You can even trade in broken or damaged phones, as long as the battery is intact, which is something that the carrier started doing last year. That means that you can get the S22 for free, and the S22 Ultra for as low as $11 per month. The discount will be applied via monthly bill credits, so you can't get this offer when you purchase the phone outright. It's also worth noting that Verizon is now using 36-month terms instead of 24-month terms, so you'll want to make sure that works for you before placing your order.

And if you're looking to buy a new smartwatch, Verizon is also offering $120 off eligible Samsung Galaxy Watches with the purchase of any Android smartphone and activation on any data plan. 

All three models are currently available with free two-day shipping.

Best Buy now offers support for Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile upgrades and new lines both in-store and online. The discounts on "unlocked" models will still require same-day activation through either  AT&T, Verizon, Sprint or T-Mobile, but if you don't have a device you're looking to trade in, it's a good chance to save up to $300. If you do have an eligible device to trade in, you can save up to $1,150 through Verizon, $800 through AT&T and $600 through T-Mobile.

All three models are currently available for delivery and in-store pickup.

T-Mobile usually goes all out for new phone releases with some pretty sweet deals for new customers and current ones alike. This time around, T-Mobile has two deals available: one for those with Magenta Max and one for those without.

Customers who are on a Magenta Max plan will be able to get the Galaxy S22 or S22 Plus for free, or up to $1,000 off the S22 Ultra with an eligible trade-in and a new line of service. If you just want to upgrade your existing line, you can still get the S22 free or save up to $800 on the S22 Plus or Ultra with an eligible trade-in.

For those not on a Magenta Max plan, T-Mobile is offering up to $800 off all three models with a trade-in and a new line of service, or up to $400 off with the trade-in alone. Both of these options use bill credits across 24 months. And for new or existing customers looking to add two or more voice lines to a plan, when you buy any S22, S22 Plus or S22 Ultra new, you can get a second one for $800 off.

T-Mobile currently has all three models available, though there are select colors and configurations of the S22 Plus and S22 Ultra that are backordered and will not ship until next month.

Boost Mobile is offering new and existing customers an excellent deal on Galaxy S22 devices. For a limited time, the carrier is offering a nice discount that brings the base price of the 128GB Galaxy S22 down to only $500. Each model is being discounted between $300 and $400 off the purchase price, though only on the 128GB models.

Since Boost Mobile is a prepaid carrier, you will need to buy the phone outright, but at this pricing it's well worth it. All three phones are currently in stock, though only the 128GB models and only in select colors.
