Amazon’s 2nd annual Prime Day has just kicked off, and we’ve rounded up all of the best tech deals out there. Smartphones, tablets, TVs and more are all on sale today, and which you can find listed below, as they happen. Before we get started, here’s what you need to know:

What to expect

Just like last year, Amazon Prime Day only lasts for 24 hours. The company will offer over 100,000 deals throughout the day for Prime subscribers in the U.S., U.K., Spain, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, Canada, Belgium and Austria. Prime Day officially kicks off in the United States at midnight PST on July 12.

Deals are made available in a wide variety of product categories. Below, we’ve listed a selection of some of the best tech deals. This is not all, however! We expect Amazon to put up Lightning deals throughout the day – in general, these are the best deals, but they do tend to run out quickly, so keep an eye out for updates.

Okay, okay, enough of the chit chat. You guys are here for deals, so let’s jump right in!

Note: This post will be updated throughout the day as more deals become available.
