Preorder deals are only available until January 30, 2024

  • Galaxy S24 and S24+ preorders available now — with ace giveaways
  • Enjoy twice as much built-in storage at no extra cost, saving up to £100
  • Plus claim a free Galaxy Watch 6 (worth £289) and one-year of Disney+

Samsung Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ preorders are now available, following the announcement of the new handsets during the latest Galaxy Unpacked event on January 17, 2023. Placing your order before the UK release date not only means you’ll be one of the first to take delivery of this new generation of Samsung phones — but it also means you'll benefit from several other perks.

For a limited time, anyone who preorders a Galaxy S24 or Galaxy S24+ can claim a free Galaxy Watch 6 smartwatch worth £289, a one-year subscription to Disney+ worth £79.90. You can claim both giveaways from Samsung no matter where you preorder the Galaxy S24 series. If you order direct from the Samsung store, you'll also unlock an exclusive 30% discount on Galaxy Buds2 Pro wireless earbuds too.


And that’s not all.

Samsung is offering double the storage at no extra cost on all Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ models, so you’ll be able to pocket the 512GB variant for the same cost as the 256GB model – saving as much as £100.

If you’re happy to part with your current phone, Samsung has supercharged trade-in rates up to £370. Of course, the exact amount will vary based on the make, model, and condition.

Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ preorders are available until January 30, with the first phones shipping from January 31. Looking to preorder the Galaxy S24 Ultra? We've rounded up the best Galaxy S24 Ultra deals in a separate guide.

Aside from SIM-free deals from Samsung, Amazon and other retailers, the biggest mobile networks in the UK – including the likes of EE, O2, Vodafone, and Three – have also launched their preorder promotions.

We’ve scoured the latest Galaxy S24 and S24+ deals and laid out the pros and cons of each offer below. Short on time? Reserve your Galaxy S handset with one of these quick links.

Best Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ SIM-free deals

If you decide to buy your Galaxy S24 or Galaxy S24+ SIM-free, you’ll be able to pair the handset with any mobile plan, including the SIM card inside your current handset or any new SIM-only deal.

Buying SIM-free offers extra flexibility, but since you're paying for the entire handset outright — it's a more expensive initial outlay. If you're worried about the upfront cost, some retailers do offer interest-free payment plans, which makes this method closer to the affordability of a pay monthly contract.

Several online retailers are already stocking the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ ahead of the release date on January 31, 2024. Given that neither of these phones has launched yet, don't expect to see a price cut on either of these models. The current pricing for the Galaxy S24 series is as follows...

  • Samsung Galaxy S24 | £799 for 128GB of storage
  • Samsung Galaxy S24 | £859 for 256GB of storage
  • Samsung Galaxy S24+ | £999 for 256GB of storage
  • Samsung Galaxy S24+ | £1,099 for 512GB of storage

If you preorder before January 30, you'll get double the built-in storage at no additional cost, so you’ll get 256GB for the price of 128GB, and so on. This free upgrade can save you as much as £150.

But while the price and stroage is consistent across all retailers, there are still reasons to pick one store over another. Preordering the Galaxy S24 or Galaxy S24+ direct from the Samsung store means you’ll get the choice of three exclusive colourways: Sapphire Blue, Jade Green, and Sandstone Orange.

If you decide to buy your new Samsung phone anywhere else, you’ll only be able to choose between Cobalt Violet, Amber Yellow, Onyx Black, and Marble Grey.

If you preorder from John Lewis, you'll benefit from two years of hardware warranty — compared with just one year from other retailers. If you don't insure your phone separately, this could be a good option.

Amazon has Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ stock too, which could be a good option if you're an Amazon Prime member (or in the middle of a free trial) as you'll get next-day delivery at no extra cost.

No matter where you decide to preorder, you can claim a one-year subscription to Disney+ from Samsung. Simply redeem the offer from this webpage as soon as you have proof of purchase.

Likewise, you can claim a free Galaxy Watch 6 smartwatch, worth £289, when you order the Galaxy S24 or Galaxy S24+ before January 25. You’ll only need to share proof of purchase with Samsung here.

Best Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ pay monthly deals

Buying the latest Samsung phones with a pay monthly deal means you won’t have to shell out as much money upfront – and you could unlock some additional perks. Mobile networks like Vodafone, O2, and Three all offer loyalty schemes with discounted coffees, gig tickets, and cinema tickets.

No matter which deal you decide to sign up for, you’ll still be able to claim a one-year subscription to Disney+ for free and a Galaxy Watch 6, worth £289. You’ll need to provide proof of purchase to Samsung before January 25, then you’ll be able to claim the freebies.

For a fair comparison between pay monthly deals, we’ve decided to pit deals with between 20-30GB of 5G mobile data against one another. That’s a decent monthly allowance that means you’ll be able to stream songs and podcasts, get turn-by-turn directions from Google Maps, and make video calls on WhatsApp, without worrying about running out of 5G.

Of course, those who want to binge boxsets from Netflix on the train to work every morning will need more 5G data, while others might be able to save money with a smaller data allowance. But it’s a pretty decent middle-ground that should work for most people.

What’s new with Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+?

Both Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ arrive with slightly bigger screens, bigger batteries, and a slew of clever Artificial Intelligence (AI) features.

The smaller (and most affordable) of the new handsets from Samsung, the Galaxy S24, boasts a 6.2-inch AMOLED screen, which is 0.1-inch larger than the Galaxy S23. It’s powered by a 4,000mAh battery cell, which is 100mAh larger than its predecessor.

Galaxy S24+ has a 6.7-inch display, which is similarly 0.1-inch larger than S23+. Like its smaller sibling, Samsung has equipped the Galaxy S24+ with a bigger battery cell, increasing capacity from 4,700mAh to 4,900mAh.

Coupled with the efficiencies of the new chipset powering the Galaxy S24 series, Exynos 2400, Samsung is confident that battery life will endure 25-hours of web browsing and 29-hours of video playback between charges.

Samsung is using an AMOLED display on both Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ with a variable refresh-rate, which ranges from 1Hz to 120Hz, to provide buttery-smooth animations and conserve battery.

There’s a triple-camera system on the back of both S24 and S24+ with a 50-megapixel camera, 10-megapixel telephoto capable of lossless 3x optical zoom, and 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor. This combo offers all of the usual photo tricks you’d expect from a top-end phone, including bokeh-style blur for Portrait Mode images and video, slow-motion video capture, panoramas, and much more.

The front-facing camera is a 12-megapixel, which is unchanged from last year.

Samsung will keep the Galaxy S24 and S24+ updated with seven generations of Android upgrades. Since both handsets ship with Android 14 preinstalled, that means Samsung phone owners will benefit from new features included in Android 21 (provided Google sticks with that naming convention and doesn’t go back to puddings) in the early 2030s. Samsung has also pledged seven years of security updates to protect users from hackers and glitches for years to come.

Galaxy AI is the big focus for Samsung with its new phones. The new AI features baked into the Galaxy S24 and S24+ include real-time translation tool for voice calls and texts, a Chat Assist tool to suggest the right tone for messages, and note and transcription tools which can transcribe conversations, translate them and even summarise them into bullet points.

In addition, the S24 range will be among the first devices to utilise Google’s Circle to Search feature, which enables users to circle, highlight or tap on anything on-screen, such as a landmark in a video or a piece of furniture, and do a web search on the point of interest selected.

The feature can be used within any app running on the phone and has so far only been confirmed for launch on the S24 range and Google’s own Pixel 8 smartphones.

Unsurprisingly, AI even makes an appearance in the camera too, with new editing tools available to recompose images, as well as use generative AI to fill in gaps when subjects in photos are moved.

Samsung said many of the AI tools would work on-device rather than via the cloud using an internet connection, meaning they would be accessible even when a user does not have a data connection, and would better protect user data and privacy.

Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ are available in a variety of colours, including Cobalt Violet, Amber Yellow, Onyx Black, and Marble Grey. If you order directly from Samsung, you’ll also get the choice of either Sapphire Blue, Jade Green, or Sandstone Orange.
