This program isn’t new. Samsung has been selling repaired Galaxy S10, Note 9, and S9 gadgets for some time now, however the program is quite recently adding Galaxy S20 gadgets to the list. You can get the S20 for $650, the S20+ for $750, or the S20 Ultra for $950. The phones are sold exclusively unlocked and come in one or the other gray or black, contingent upon the model you select. They’re totally marked down by about $350 ($450 for the Ultra) from the launch price, leaving them just $150 less expensive than the new Galaxy S21 series.
Samsung says that the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy S20 FE will likewise be added to the “re-newed” program soon. Going by a similar discount pattern, that would see the Note 20 (not the Ultra) down to $650, and the S20 FE could drop as low as $400 or less, which would be a killer deal.
