Save big on Samsung Galaxy phones, tablets, and more during Black Friday

It has been a banner year for Samsung, between the camera prowess of the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the more polished foldable experience on the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Fold 3, and the launch of the first smartwatch with Wear OS 3, the Galaxy Watch 4. So whether you're looking for new earbuds or a great deal on one of the best Android phones, Black Friday always brings tremendous deals to every segment, and we're here to help you find the best one for you and your family members.

While supply issues might make some smartphone deals more elusive than in previous years, there are a few perennial deals and plenty of bundles hoping to sweeten the pot this Black Friday. Tablets are another area we expect Samsung to offer bountiful discounts in, and Galaxy earbuds will drop from good prices down to "what the heck are you waiting for" territory before the turkey leftovers are demolished.

Where to find the best Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals

Samsung Galaxy deals will pop up in every retailer and carrier store this Black Friday — mostly for its phones, but deals for the LTE-enabled watches and tablets are common as well — while earbud and Bluetooth watches/tablets are more common at the big four retailers. However, if you want to see deals on all Samsung products, your first stop should be Samsung's own website. This is because Samsung offers trade-in for everything from tablets to phones to earbuds, letting you save on top of the instant rebates and bundles Samsung has on tap.

When do the Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals begin?

While everything starts really heating up around November 21st — the Sunday before Black Friday — for everything but smartphones, deals are already flowing. I expect the discounts on tablets and earbuds to stay about where they are between now and Thanksgiving, though the Galaxy Watch 4 might get some more deals.

Smartphone deals will start ramping up around November 25 and stick around through Cyber Monday, if they don't sell out first. I expect deals on the S21 series to go fast, so if that's what you're looking to buy, be ready to pounce when deals arrive.

Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals: Smartphones

The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3. These eye-catching foldable phones have been out for four months now and could see some discounts, but I wouldn't expect to see the Galaxy Z Flip 3 break the $800 barrier or the Z Fold 3 to descend past $1,300. Samsung currently has $100 off the Flip and $250 off the Fold, and it likely won't go much lower than that, but the trade-in program Samsung offers can bring those prices much, much further down.

Every Black Friday for the last half-decade has seen buy-one-get-one-free deals for that year's Galaxy S model on every major carrier, and for those looking to buy a single phone, discounts of $200-$300 are common. Despite the Galaxy S21 being impossible to keep in stock for other retailers — and even some carriers — Samsung has it $200 off right now.

Samsung Galaxy S21 (save $200)

Featuring the vividly colorful 120Hz screens, phenomenal cameras, and Samsung's uniquely polished One UI software — which will be getting Android 12 soon — the Galaxy S21 is an excellent phone with three more years of security updates ahead of it. Get $25-$50 instant credit to spend on cases, chargers, and more.

From $600 at Samsung

The better deals this year for the S series might actually be for older generations like the S20 series and S20 FE, which should go under $500 at least. Moving over to the A-series, the A52 spent this summer at $400, so wait for it to drop to $400 or $35. Likewise, look for the A32 5G to drop under $200 and the A42 5G under $300, and both are heavily subsidized when purchased through your carrier.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

Save up to $330 at Samsung

Pick up Samsung's latest Galaxy Note 20 Ultra to get a powerhose phone at $100 off while getting a free Chromebook 4 at the same time — does it get any better?

Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals: Wearables

The only Samsung smartwatches you should buy this Black Friday are the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. While deals might surface for the Galaxy Watch 3, the 4 Classic will still be a better value, has wider app support, and has a longer support life ahead of it.

You can already find the Galaxy Watch 4 for $200 and the Watch 4 Classic for $300 — $50 off — but I'm expecting another $30-$60 to get lopped off. When checking deals, you might want to start at Samsung's website, as they've been matching or beating Amazon's deals thus far and they offer trade-in value if you give them an old wearable. Most of the trade-in values are low, but something is better than nothing for a watch you won't be wearing anymore.

Oh, and the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is less than 9 months from the end of its updates and support window. So unless you are just obsessed with its small size, I'd skip it for the Watch 4, which is only a little bit bigger and will last a lot longer.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4

From $199 at Walmart (40mm) From $229 at Walmart (44mm)

You'll get the cheapest prices if you opt for either the 40mm or 44mm variant of the aluminum Galaxy Watch 4. There's only a $30 price difference between the two, so most people will likely want to go for the larger display and choose the 44mm model.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic

From $299 at Walmart (42mm) From $329 at Walmart (46mm)

If you prefer a premium design with a traditional aesthetic, you might be drawn to the stainless steel Galaxy Watch 4 Classic models. Again, there's only a $30 price difference between them. If you want to go big or go home, the 46mm is the best pick.

Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals: Tablets

The Galaxy Tab S7 series is a year old and while last Black Friday only brought it down to the $550 range, this premium, powerhouse tablet is already down to $500 and will likely go lower the closer we get to Black Friday. While you have to pay extra for a kickstand, cover, or keyboard, the Tab S7 is a good tablet right now that might get amazing next year once Android 12L launches for foldables and tablets.

The Galaxy Tab S7 FE is hovering around $430 right now, but breaking down under $400 is all but guaranteed. While not as powerful as the S7 and S7+, it still boasts an excellent screen for Android gaming or weekend binges in bed. If you're wanting a leisure tablet, I'd pay closer attention to S7 FE deals this Black Friday.

Samsung's more budget-minded Tab A-series like the Galaxy Tab A7 and Galaxy Tab A 10.1 haven't seen many discounts yet, but they'll come. Just keep in mind the minimal RAM these tablets tend to have and be mindful of that if you intend to try any sort of gaming or video-calling.

Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals: Chromebooks

The two generations of the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook are primed for deals this Black Friday, and in fact the originally Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is already $300 off at Amazon. Featuring a gorgeous 4K AMOLED touchscreen , the Galaxy Chromebook works hard and plays harder, and while the Galaxy Chromebook 2 will likely drop to the $400-$500 range per model, $700 for the original and that oh-so-lovely screen is the better deal to be had. Just be mindful that the bottom of this fanless laptop can warm up a bit during long sessions.

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook

Whether you want the latest specs for your work or the best screen around for watching movies, this gives you both. While the newer Galaxy Chromebook 2 is also $700, it has less power and a lower-resolution screen, so stick with the OG.

$692 at Amazon

Samsung Chromebook 4

It may not be the newest Chromebook on the block, but it's a great fit for strapped budgets and casual computing. With up to 12 hours of battery life and 4GB of RAM, the Chromebook 4 is great for homework, writing, everyday computing, and lightweight travel.

$129 at Walmart

Samsung Chromebook 4+

$209 at Walmart

Using standard 45W USB-C Power Delivery Charging and the same software and features as Chromebooks twice its price, the Samsung Chromebook 4+ can feel like a steal, but the lackluster screen spoils the experience for weaker, older eyes. 4GB of RAM combine with the Celeron N4000 for easy homework but not easy video calls with the whole class.

Black Friday Samsung Galaxy deals: Earbuds

Samsung's many wireless earbuds are among the best on the market, and they're all primed for deep discounts. The best Samsung earbuds, the Galaxy Buds Pro, launched alongside the Galaxy S21 in January, and just as you could get them free with an S21 at launch, I expect to see them bundled with some Galaxy smartphone deals. If you're happy with your current phone, though, we're already seeing the Buds Pro for $50 off or more at some retailers. Samsung's website will even trade in an old pair of earbuds for up to $50 off, giving you the Buds Pro for 50% off. The Buds Pro are a steal if you can get them for $120 or less: they're comfy enough to wear for hours, ANC adequately blocks out the world in most environments, and the microphones inside sound better than earbuds twice the price.

The newer but not-quite-as-durable Galaxy Buds 2 has already been seeing sales and instant rebates bringing it down from $150 to $130 — Samsung has them for $120, plus up to another $40 off for your old earbuds — and I wouldn't be surprised to see sales that bring the Buds 2 to $75 around Black Friday weekend.

While the Galaxy Buds Live — yes, the ones shaped like beans — are super-duper comfortable, the Galaxy Buds Pro stay in better, sound much better, and ANC on the Live is lackluster due to the minimal design. Unless you just adore the Mystic Red colorway or it drops under $85, the deals on the Buds Pro make them a better value and better overall product.

The battery champ of the bunch are the Galaxy Buds+, but they're almost two years old and they were going for around $50 last Black Friday. There's better bargains, but if you dig the Buds+ colors or that 11-hour continuous use battery life, I'd wait till they hit $60 or less to pull the trigger.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro (Save $50-$100)

Samsung already has a $50 discount gong for the best earbuds they've ever made, but with Samsung's recycling program, you can lop off another $30-$50. Trade in literally any pair of wireless or wired headphones or earbuds and get $30 off, and you get $50 off if you trade in a pair of Galaxy Buds Live or Galaxy Buds+. Promo code credit from buying a Samsung phone or watch earlier this fall can apply to this deal, too, if you haven't spent yours yet!

From $100 at Samsung

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 (save $40)

The Galaxy Buds 2 offer the best of Samsung's wireless earbuds in an affordable package. They sound fantastic, tune out noise in your vicinity, last the same amount of time as the Buds Pro, and include wireless charging. For what you're ultimately paying here, you are getting a great value.

$110 at Amazon $120 at Samsung

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live (save $70)

$100 at Amazon $105 at Walmart

Samsung's Galaxy Buds Live deliver incredible sound backed by an ergonomic fit, active noise cancellation, and IPX2 dust and water resistance. They last six hours between charges, include wireless charging, and are a great overall option.

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ (save $70)

$79 at Walmart

The Galaxy Buds+ continue to deliver when it comes to sound quality, and with a 11-hour battery life, you can wear these throughout the day and not have to worry about running out of charge.

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . So you'
