The Galaxy S10 128GB can earn you up to £35 more than it did at the beginning of the year and the trade-in prices for 512GB model have also increased by a whopping £60.
That upward trend may not last long with things expected to take a tumble once the S20 arrives so keep an eye on prices if you are considering selling your current phone. One such service has already revealed its expectations for the S10 and it doesn’t make for pretty reading.
New research from musicMagpie reveals that old Android devices – in particular, Samsung handsets – can lose up to 35% of their value following a new release.
Liam Howley, Chief Marketing Officer at musicMagpie, said: “With the new Samsung launching soon, lots of people are planning to upgrade. From our data, it’s clear that those people should sell their old phone now rather than wait around.
“The S9, for example, lost 73% of its value by the time the S10 arrived. A month before the launch, it had only lost 59% of its value – if you sold earlier, you’d have got an extra £100 towards your upgrade.”
