The Samsung Galaxy Book4 Ultra (7/10, WIRED Review) can cost as much as $3,000 if you go for the Intel Core Ultra 9 processor. That’s expensive, but if you are OK with the less powerful but still-good Core Ultra 7 instead, you can save on the Galaxy Book4 lineup. There are some quirks with this laptop—our reviewer didn’t love the trackpad, and the machine takes a long time to boot. But it has fantastic performance, a huge display, and great battery life.

We see deals on The Frame quite frequently. The 55-inch version is discounted often, but right now it’s not on sale—however, nearly every other size is. You can save up to $1,000 depending on the dimensions you choose. The Frame from Samsung looks like a piece of art when you’re not watching a movie or show. It’ll flip through hundreds of paintings and photographs when idle, and the cable is unobtrusive. Read our Best TVs guide for more recommendations.

The Samsung S95C QD-OLED TV (8/10, WIRED Recommends) was one of the best TVs we tested last year. The quantum-dot technology paired with the OLED behind the screen means you’ll get excellent black levels and gorgeous color payoff, plus the screen gets plenty bright—it’ll look good in any room. Just be aware that the TV is very thin, so you might need help mounting it.

Samsung released its flagship Samsung Galaxy S24 lineup (8/10, WIRED Recommends) in January. We’ve seen this phone drop to $700 before, but $724 is still a good deal. The S24 series has great performance, day-long (if not more) battery life, and stunning displays. The design is a bit uninspired, but you can snag the phones in neat colors. This basic model will serve most people just fine. Make sure to protect your new purchase with one of our favorite S24 cases.

This deal brings the S24+ price down by an extra $50 compared to the deal we saw a few months ago. The Galaxy S24+ has a larger 6.7-inch display over the base S24 model’s 6.2-inch screen. It also has a bigger battery, more RAM, and a higher starting storage capacity than its smaller sibling. Read more about their differences and similarities in our buying guide. We’ve also tested many Samsung Galaxy S24+ cases—these are our favorites.

This is the lowest price we’ve tracked for the S24 Ultra so far. It’s still expensive, but if you’re determined to have the fanciest phone in the lineup, this is the one you’re looking for. It’s the biggest of the bunch and it’s made of titanium rather than aluminum. It also has a built-in S Pen stylus and more versatile cameras over the S24 and S24+. Our buying guide has plenty of detailed advice. Don’t forget a phone case! If you’re trading in a device, Samsung is also offering an enhanced trade-in package. You can get up to $750 back as a credit, plus a free memory upgrade and a free pair of Galaxy Buds2 headphones. Find more details here.

We’ve seen this discount come around a few times. It’s not the best price we’ve tracked, but it comes close. The Z Fold5 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is a sleek smartphone that opens like a book. The cameras are great, the immersive displays are bright and high-quality, and the phone has one of the best update policies you can get on an Android. Once your new purchase arrives, check our Best Apps for Folding Phones guide.

Smartwatch and Headphone Deals

We don’t see too many good deals on these earbuds, but right now Amazon has them on sale for around $150 in both the black and white versions. The Galaxy Buds2 Pro (9/10, WIRED Recommends) offer excellent sound and noise cancelation, as well as a comfortable fit and high-quality hands-free calls. They’re some of the best earbuds on the market.

We’ve shared this deal before, but it’s worth sharing again. The Samsung Galaxy Buds2 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) are older, but they’re still some of the best earbuds for Samsung users. With cute color options, a comfortable fit, active noise cancelation, and five hours of battery life per charge, they’re worth this price.

A few different sizes and styles are on sale, and most of them meet or beat previous low prices. The Samsung Galaxy Watch6 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is a fine option for anyone with an Android phone, though Samsung users have some exclusive features related to heart rate monitoring. The battery life lasts around two days per charge, and the interface is simple and intuitive. The watch can track everything from steps to sleep.
