AT&T and Verizon have finally announced pre-order dates for all three variations of the Galaxy S20. Interestingly, all models will come with 5G on board, marking the arrival of the first of many 5G phones to come in 2020. Fortunately, the pricing set by both carriers are nearly identical, so there’s no real advantage picking either variant.

The Galaxy S20+ and the S20 Ultra, on the other hand, come with support for Verizon’s existing mmWave 5G frequencies.
The Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G on Verizon will set you back by $1,399 upfront or $58.33/month for 24 months. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S20+ 5G on the network will cost you $1,199 upfront or $49.99/month for 24 months. As for the Galaxy S20, it will be the cheapest of the lot with an upfront cost of $999 or $41.66/month for 24 months.
With pre-orders going live on the 21st of February, Verizon will make the two flagships available for purchase starting March 6. Customers who pre-ordered the Galaxy S20+ 5G or the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G are expected to receive their smartphone in that timeframe.
As for AT&T, the carrier will put up all three variants of the Galaxy S20 on pre-order starting February 21, unlike Verizon which misses out on the Galaxy S20. AT&T mentions that these flagships will start hitting shelves on March 6 as per.
