Samsung has opened up reservations for its next flagship phones, expected to be the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra, that the company will unveil at an upcoming event on February 11th.

But this isn’t a pre-order. It’s more like taking a ticket while you’re in line at the deli. You enter your name, contact info, and preferred carrier, and — you’re ready to wait. It’s highly unlikely that Samsung will run short on supply, but by reserving a pre-order, you’re at least closer toward the front of the line to buy one on launch day. And not just that, those who reserve now and commit to a pre-order when they become available will receive a $35 instant credit to use on Samsung’s site.

Speaking of launch day, Samsung mentions on its page that it expects delivery by March 6th. I wouldn’t take this as a confirmation of the actual sales date of the rumored S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra. But it’s definitely a good hint as to when we might expect them to be available.

We’ll be at Samsung’s Unpacked event where, hopefully, the company will affirm everything we think we know about its Galaxy S20. And maybe we’ll hear something about that rumored flip phone that’s being talked about as well.
