A week ahead of Samsung’s Unpacked 2019 press conference in San Francisco, the South Korean maker is enticing Apple users to switch to one of the upcoming Galaxy S10 smartphones by offering up to $550 off to those who would trade-in their iPhone.
The tenth-anniversary Galaxy models will be unveiled at a press conference on a week from now on Wednesday, February 20, with a flagship model said to rock a triple-lens rear camera. Wi-Fi 6, new Samsung display and chips will be standard offerings across all models.
While we don’t know how much these upcoming Galaxies will ultimately cost, Samsung wants you to register your interest at the official website to get early access to preorders along with a $50 credit on accessories.
The biggest credit at up to $550 can be earned by swapping your iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max.
Have an older phone?
No problem, Samsung will take up to $300 off when you trade in your rusty old iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. Last but not least, you’re getting up to $150 for an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, and up to $75 for an iPhone 6.
Samsung’s trade-in offer includes its own handsets, such as Galaxy S9 and Note 9, as well as non-Apple smartphones like LG’s V40 and Google’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL models.
Samsung targets March 8 delivery while supplies last.
The goal is simple: counter Apple’s own aggressive trade-in tactics by matching it value-wise and release it to the public ahead of time in order to entice Apple customers to upgrade.
Pretty smart, I must say.
Which brings me yo my question of the day: with Apple’s S-year, collapsing sales in China and light iPhone XS/XR upgrades, would you consider swapping your Apple smartphone for a new Galaxy S10?
