There are some benefits to preordering the Note 10.
Last week, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 10 during another Unpacked event, and boy does it look nice. This year, ordering a Note 10 isn’t as simple as picking a storage option and clicking buy. There are three different models, with varying display size and even a 5G-specific model that will launch as a limited-time Verizon Wirelessexclusive in the US.
As usual, wireless carriers and retailers are accepting preorders ahead of the Aug. 23 launch. There are plenty of deals to be found, so be sure to shop around and find a deal that saves you the most money.
