Samsung has unveiled a number of Black Friday deals ahead of the popular sales event
Samsung has taken the wraps off its Black Friday sales, with discounts to a number of its most popular products.
The deals start on Sunday November 19th, with more announcements planned for Thursday November 23rd – Thanksgiving in the United States – which will last through until the end of Black Friday itself, November 24th.
Unfortunately, there’s no mention of any Black Friday discounts for UK bargain hunters.
The deals unveiled so far are limited to the United States – and some of the discounts are likely to make shoppers on this side of the pond very jealous.
Topping the list of discounts available from November 19th is the Gear S3 Frontier smartwatch, which has been reduced to $279 from its usual $349.99 RRP.
Samsung is also offering customers up to $300 credit to spend on a brand-new Galaxy Note 8 when they trade-in their current smartphone.
Unfortunately, the South Korean technology firm hasn’t dropped the price of the Note 8 itself, which still sits at $950, but could still prove to be a good incentive for those who held off buying the phone at launch.
Elsewhere, Samsung has slashed the price of its 65-inch 4K TV (model number MU6290) by $250, taking the price tag to $849.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen is $229, a reduction of $120.
The all-new Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro is also included in the first round of discounts, on-sale for $149, which is good for $50 off of its regular price.

Those willing to wait until Black Friday itself will see a slew of new discounts.
Samsung is offering up to $400 credit towards a Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus when customers trade-in their current smartphone.
That should provide a sizeable discount on your new handset.
Samsung will also be offering customers a free Gear VR (which usually carries a $129 price tag) with the purchase of a Gear 360 camera.
The technology company will also slash $70 from its 256GB EVO Plus microSD card.
But the biggest savings are to be found on Samsung’s QLED TVs, with the 55-inch model dropped to $1,499, 65-inch to $2,199 and the curved models on-sale for $1,699 for 55-inches and $2,299 for 65-inches.
That’s almost 50per cent off the RRP.

Remember these sales prices will only be honoured while supplies last, so it might be worth setting an alarm to ensure you get the model you’ve got your eyes on.
But while Samsung hasn’t unveiled any Black Friday discounts for UK customers, a number of UK retailers have announced deals for the infamous shopping day.
Argos, Currys and Tesco and Sky have all cut prices and are offering amazing discounts ahead of Black Friday 2017 – while Amazon will begin their sales one week away from the day itself.
Black Friday sales first started in America, and takes place on the day after Thanksgiving – which this year falls on November 24.
Many deals will appear online as soon as the clock strikes midnight, while the majority of UK’s high street retailers will open at 6am.
The shopping bonanza will last all weekend, and is followed by Black Friday’s online equivalent Cyber Monday on November 27.
But you don’t need to wait until Black Friday and Cyber Monday to pick up a bargain though.
Amazon, Argos, Currys, Tesco and John Lewis are all offering money-saving deals ahead of the busy sales day.
