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 will be unveiled at a press conference a week from now on Wednesday, February 20, with a flagship model said to rock a triple-lens rear camera. Wi-Fi 6 along with new Samsung displays and chips will be standard offerings across all models.
We don’t know how much the new phones will cost, but you can register your interest at Samsung’s website to get early access to preorders along with a $50 credit on accessories.
The most valuable 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 happily 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 your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, and up to $75 for an even older iPhone 6 model.
The offer includes Samsung’s 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.
The South Korean maker targets March 8 delivery while supplies last.
The goal is simple: match or one-up Apple’s aggressive trade-in offer 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 to the question of the day: with Apple’s collapsing sales in China and light iPhone upgrades, would you consider swapping your iPhone for a new Galaxy S10?
