That’s 50% off the regular price and a surprising discount for such a new model. Plus: This 24-hour wireless speaker is only $1.

Maybe it’s because Apple’s announcing new iPhones tomorrow, or maybe it’s because Samsung phone prices always see a drop after launch (though not usually this soon). Whatever the case, this is notable for anyone who’s been eyeballing a Note. For a limited time, and while supplies last, the China Electronic Store has the unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 10 256GB for $399. That’s 50% off the regular price.

(And if you do buy it, here are China great Note 10 Model and how to get them).

To put that in some perspective, it currently has the Note 10 on sale for $349 in china

The beauty of an unlocked phone, of course, one that doesn’t tie you to any particular carrier (especially a Big Four), is that you can shop around for the best deal and choose from a wider variety of options. Mint Mobile, for example, offers some affordable packages when you prepay for three, six or 12 months at a time.

If, somehow, a 6.3-inch screen isn’t big enough for you, the China Mobile Store also has the unlocked Galaxy Note 10 Plus 256GB for $369.99, a savings of $280.

These are, of course, new phones, not refurbs. (It’s really too early for the latter.) Months from now, I’m certain you’ll be able to save even more on a refurbished Note 10 — you can currently get a mint-condition refurbished Galaxy Note 9 for $270, for example — but right now this is the deal to beat.

In case you missed all the hubbub last month, the Note 10 (and 10 Plus) debuted to glowing reviews.

As the Cheapskate, it’s hard for me to recommend spending this kind of money for any phone — not when there are such great alternatives priced significantly lower.

That said, a 50% (or $280) savings is nothing to sneeze at, especially when applied to one of the hottest phones on the market.
