AT&T, T-Mobile deplete Galaxy S20 stocks ahead of Galaxy S21 launch
T-Mobile and AT&T appear to have depleted their Galaxy S20 inventories and the flagship trio – or at least some models – might not be back in stock anytime soon. T-Mobile claims that the high demand for the Galaxy S20 series during the holiday shopping season has led to a low inventory but the company did bring the base Galaxy S20 back in stock. In contrast, AT&T continues selling the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra but the carrier no longer has any Galaxy S20 inventory.
In a statement to CNET, AT&T claims that although the Galaxy S20 is no longer in stock, the carrier will continue to offer great deals on other Samsung wireless products. As to why the two carriers are reluctant to resupply with new Galaxy S20 units, well, the reasons should be obvious. The Galaxy S21 lineup is on the horizon and it should be unveiled in mid-January.
If you don’t plan on buying the Galaxy S21 or if you’re looking to purchase the Galaxy S20 as a gift before the end of the year, know that Samsung USA continues selling the flagship trio and you can take advantage of various trade-in deals to bring the full retail price down by a few hundreds of dollars, depending on the model you’re willing to exchange. Then again, buying the Galaxy S20 this close to the Galaxy S21 launch might not be such a wise investment; not if it’s being sold at full retail price or close to it.
