Samsung's back to school deal bundles unlocked Galaxy S10 phones with $200-worth freebie
For a high-end smartphone family that's reportedly selling like hotcakes, the Galaxy S10/S10+/S10e has sure been discounted a lot lately, both by Samsung itself and a number of major third-party retailers, not to mention the nation's largest carriers.
The newest deal comes from the world's top smartphone vendor, running from today, August 4, through the 18th at Samsung.com and the company's official shopping app. This time around, you can't save any money on the actual purchase of an unlocked Galaxy S10-series handset, instead having to "settle" for a free Chromebook 3.
While perhaps not the world's most valuable gift, that's still a pretty decent 11.6-inch laptop you don't need to pay a dime for, running Chrome OS (obviously) on the software side of things, with an Intel Celeron processor under the hood that promises to deliver maximum efficiency for everyday tasks like web browsing, content consumption, and even schoolwork.
In fact, Samsung is advertising this bundle as a special back to school offer, so clearly, the company thinks the aforementioned chip and 2GB RAM will be enough to keep you satisfied in the classroom and at home for up to a whopping 11 hours between charges. As far as the phones are concerned, you'll probably want to remember the $750 and up Galaxy S10e is the one with the flat 5.8-inch screen, side-mounted fingerprint scanner, dual 12 + 16MP rear camera setup, and 3,100mAh battery.
Galaxy S10 starts at $900 with a snazzy dual-curved display in tow, as well as three shooters mounted on its back, a "hidden" fingerprint reader, and a 3,400mAh cell. Last but by no means least, the 6.4-inch Samsung Galaxy S10+ packs a 4,100mAh battery and dual selfie cams in addition to a triple rear snapper arrangement, fetching a full $1,000 in its entry-level configuration. Those are hardly affordable prices, especially on the eve of the Galaxy Note 10 launch, but when taking the value of the complimentary Chromebook 3 into consideration, they're not exactly prohibitive either.The 6.1-inch
