TL;DR
  • Samsung will have experiences set up to celebrate the Samsung Galaxy S23 launch.
  • These physical event spaces will allow you to try out the Galaxy S23 before anyone else.
  • The experiences open on February 1, the same day as the phones’ launch.

Although we know for certain that Samsung will launch the next Galaxy S smartphones on February 1, that’s not when you’ll be able to buy them. As usual, Samsung will reveal the phones and open pre-orders that day, but sales will begin sometime later.

If you want to skip the line, you can experience the Samsung Galaxy S23 launch in a more “hands-on” way. In various locations worldwide, Samsung will hold events where you can physically try a Galaxy S23 smartphone.

As one would expect, the primary location will be in San Francisco, which is where the main launch event will happen. There will be a bunch of other events, though:
