Is it a good deal?

The new storage variants will be available for pre-order on Samsung.com from May 1 and will be exclusively available on Samsung’s website starting on May 18. So, you won’t be able to buy these through your carrier or third-party sellers like Amazon.

All variants will be available in all existing colors- Lilac Purple, Coral Blue, and Midnight Black. Although the existing variants come with an option to expand the storage via microSD card, the more on-board storage is useful for those who do not like to shuffle between internal and external storage.

Samsung is also offering a free set of Gear Icon X (2018) Bluetooth earbuds and a Gear S3 Frontier for $99 when you buy any variant through May 17th.
