Unveiled on Feb. 9 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 the Galaxy Note series, which was discontinued late last year. There were major stocking and backorder issues when these phones first hit shelves in February, but things have improved since then. While select colors and configurations are still on backorder, most carriers and retailers have at least some configurations of each model available for immediate purchase.

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.

What colors does the Galaxy S22 come in?

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.

How much does the Galaxy S22 cost?

The three models of the Galaxy S22 are available in various storage configurations. US pricing for each model starts at:

Both the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus are available in 128GB and 256GB storage options with 8GB of RAM, while the Galaxy S22 Ultra will also add in options for 512GB and 1TB with up to 12GB of RAM.

Best Galaxy S22 deals

At this point, the preorder specials are over, but there are some pretty stellar deals out there if you look in the right places. We’ve rounded up the best Galaxy S22 deals from carriers and retailers that we’ve found.

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: Ordering a Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus or the Galaxy S22 Ultra from Samsung’s site will score you $100 in Samsung credit that you can use towards a case, charger or other accessories for your new phone. You can also save up to $850 with an eligible trade-in, scoring you the Ultra, for instance, for the low price of only $350. Additionally, Samsung’s site will offer you 1% back in rewards.

If you’re also looking to get a tablet from the new Galaxy Tab S8 lineup, you’ll be able to get up to $200 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 either out of stock or backordered, and won’t ship until early May.

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. Deals on these are pretty slim right now, but currently, Amazon has select colors and configurations of the S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra available for $100 off the usual list price. While these deals only cover the base models with 128GB of storage, this is a rare chance to snag a brand-new Galaxy phone at a discount without any strings attached.

We’ve seen this Amazon offer come and go before, and it typically doesn’t last for very long, so get your order in soon if you’re hoping to jump on this deal.

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.

Verizon has a bunch of promotions for the Galaxy S22 lineup for both new and existing customers. The deals allow you to trade in broken old phones toward the new ones, which is something that the carrier started doing last year. If you don’t have a phone you’re willing to part with, Verizon also has a deal that doesn’t require any trade-in.

If you’re a current Verizon subscriber or someone looking to make the switch to Verizon, there are some great deals to take advantage of. If you’re new, the carrier will give you up to $800 off any of the Galaxy S22 phones with a qualifying trade-in and activation on select 5G Unlimited Plans. Verizon is still accepting old and broken phones as part of this, and to sweeten the deal Verizon will also give you a $200 Verizon gift card for every new line you add to your plan.

Existing customers will be able to upgrade to the Galaxy S22 series and save up to $700 via 36 months of bill credits on select Unlimited Plans with a qualifying trade-in. And if you’re looking to buy a new smartwatch, Verizon is also offering $120 off eligible Samsung Galaxy Watches with the purchase of a new Galaxy S22, S22 Plus or S22 Ultra phone.

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

It’s 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.

Best Buy now offers support for Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile upgrades and new lines both in-store and online. While you can technically save up to $150 on unlocked models, same-day activation through either AT&T, Verizon, Spring or T-Mobile is required to get the discount, so you’re still better off opting for one of the carrier deals. With select trade-ins, you can save up to $1,000 through Verizon, $800 through AT&T and $620 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 for free when trading in an eligible device. If you’re opting for the Galaxy S22 Plus or Ultra, T-Mobile will give you $800 off with the trade-in. For those not on a Magenta Max plan, T-Mobile is offering up to $400 off any of the new Galaxy S22 devices when you trade in an eligible device. 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.

While there are some configurations for each model that are currently in stock, several are on backorder and won’t ship until late April or early May.

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 $600. Each model is being discounted between $200 and $400 off the purchase price (excluding the 256GB model Ultra).

Since Boost Mobile is a prepaid carrier, you will need to buy the phone outright, but at this pricing it’s well worth it. Both the S22 and the S22 Ultra have select configurations in stock right now; all configurations and colors of the S22 are currently sold out.
