Samsung‘s Galaxy S24 series was announced on January 17. Immediately, pre-orders for the new flagships opened in most global markets. Pre-orders are set to continue until January 31, with general sales and delivery kicking off the next day. The new flagships are flying off the shelves, especially the Ultra model. For some color variants, the wait time is over a month.
The Galaxy S24 Ultra is a hot commodity. Samsung launched the Galaxy S24 Ultra in seven different colors. The Titanium Black, Titanium Yellow, Titanium Violet, and Titanium Gray are available globally. But, the Titanium Green, Titanium Blue, and Titanium Orange are exclusive to Samsung’s official website. You won’t find these colors in third-party stores or carriers. You can only buy them unlocked.
In the early days of the pre-order period, Samsung promised to deliver all purchases by January 31. But, we’ve recently discovered that the Yellow and Black colors now have an expected delivery date of March 6. For the Gray and Orange colors, it’s March 8. That’s almost five weeks of extra waiting time. The other three color variants are still set for a January 31 delivery.
This only applies to the Galaxy S24 Ultra bought through Samsung’s official website. Third-party retailers like Best Buy and Amazon still promise a January 31 shipping date for all colors. The same goes for carrier-locked units bought directly from carriers. The Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ also have a January 31 delivery date across all retail channels.
This could suggest a high demand for the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Samsung probably allocated a significant number of units to its retail partners and is now running low on stock. But, we expect the company to increase production of the colors that are selling more. With fierce competition in the market, Samsung wouldn’t want to discourage potential buyers with delayed delivery. It might even divert some stock from partners who aren’t selling as much as predicted.
If you’re thinking about buying the Galaxy S24 Ultra, you might want to place your pre-order ASAP. Samsung is currently offering a $100 instant credit, a free storage upgrade, and trade-in bonuses for all pre-orders. Not only will you save money with this promotion, but ordering early will also ensure that the phone reaches you as soon as possible.
