We’re back with a fresh assortment of discounts for Thursday, with some notable launch discounts live on Samsung’s new Galaxy S23/+/Ultra smartphones. On top of bundled gift cards, there’s as much as $180 in cash savings across the three different models. Plus, you can score new lows on Fossil’s Gen 6 Wellness Edition Smartwatches from $160 to go alongside Google’s original wired Nest Doorbell at $79. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Samsung’s Galaxy S23/+/Ultra see launch deals

Yesterday saw Samsung reveal its new slate of Galaxy smartphones, and now not too far behind are the Amazon discounts. Courtesy of the retailer, right now all three versions of the new unlocked 5G handsets are being bundled with up to $100 in gift cards to entice shoppers who don’t plan on upgrading with a carrier’s promotion or trading in a device. Of the collection, our favorite is of course the flagship Galaxy S23 Ultra for $1,200 with a $100 gift card attached. On top of the added $100 in credit to spend at Amazon, the retailer is also discounting the 512GB capacity to the same price as the lower 256GB model. This saves you $280 overall and is one of the best unlocked offers. 

Samsung’s latest S23 Ultra flagship arrives with a similar design as previous year’s versions, just with some notable under the hood improvements. Centered around the refreshed Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, there’s also a 6.8-inch QHD+ 120Hz panel and support for the oh-so popualr S-Pen stylus that can store away in the handset. One adjustment with the sceen that’ll be largely appreciated is the noticeably flatter screen curve compared to the preceeding S22 Ultra. There’s also 512GB of storage, a 200MP quad camera array, and 5G connectivity.

Just like the lead deal, all three of the different Galaxy S23 devices are not just bundled with gift cards to Amazon, but also feature elevated storage capacities that are seeing cash discounts down to the entry-level model prices.

Fossil’s Gen 6 Wellness Edition Smartwatches fall to new lows

Amazon is now offering the Fossil Gen 6 44mm Wellness Edition Smartwatch for $209 in three styles. Normally fetching $299, you’re looking at 30% in savings as well as only the second discount so far to date. This lands at $20 under the first discount that briefly went live at the start of the year and delivers a new all-time low. Powered by the latest Wear OS, this wearable sports a Qualcomm 4100+ chipset to improve performance over previous-generation offerings. Aside from your typical notifcations that show up on the wrist-mounted, circular display, there’s also the added health features that give this model the Wellness Edition naming scheme. It can track everything from your typical activity goals, steps, and sleep to heart rate, cardio, SpO2, and more – all of which are viewable on the brighter always-on display. We break down what to expect in our hands-on review.

Also getting in on the savings, if you’d prefer to trade-in the full color display found above for longer battery life, Amazon is also marking down the Hybrid version of Fossil’s Gen 6 Wellness Edition smartwatch. Seeing its very first discount, pricing now lands at $160 across three different styles of the e-ink display wearable. This one normally sells for $229, and is also seeing a 30% price cut to a new all-time low. It sports much of the same design as the model above, just with a more energy-efficient screen.

Google’s original wired Nest Doorbell hits $79

B&H now offers the original Google Nest Video Doorbell for $79. Undercutting our previous mention by $1, today’s price cut delivers a new all-time low from the usual $129 going rate we’ve been tracking as of late. While still fully supported by Google, this technically is the previous-generation video doorbell experience in the Nest stable that has since been rebranded following the release of a battery-powered offering that we breakdown the differences. Much the same, Nest Video Doorbell integrates with your Google smart home and keeps an eye on your porch with the help of Assistant and touts intelligent motion and person alerts. All of that makes it a versatile option for seeing who’s at the door, if a package was delivered on time, and just keeping tabs on the activity outside your home thanks to its 1080p sensor. There’s also the perk of 24/7 recording, that rounds out the package you can read more about over here.

Anker’s new Soundcore Liberty 4 earbuds now down to $130

Having launched last fall as one of the first pair of earbuds on the market not from the likes of Apple, Google, or Samsung to deliver Spatial Audio, the new Anker Soundcore Liberty 4 arrived with more than just immersive listening. Now on sale for one of the very first times, Amazon is dropping the recently-released true wireless earbuds down to $130 in two different styles. Normally fetching $150, this is only the third discount to date at $20 off. It’s the second-best price yet and was only beaten once before in a short-lived sale back in December.

Anker’s latest Soundcore Liberty 4 earbuds arrive as its latest flagship true wireless listening experience and are spec’d to match. Active noise cancellation is of course a nice touch, but not quite as enticing as Special Audio support. There’s also 9-hour battery life supplemented by an extra 20 from the Qi-enabled charging case, which rounds out the package that you can read about in our hands-on review with built-in heart rate monitoring.

Ultimate Ears’ colorful WONDERBOOM 3 speaker on sale from $79

Amazon is now offering the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM 3 Speaker from $79. Normally fetching $100, you’re looking at price cuts across all four colors of the new release at $80 or less. Today’s price cuts save you 20% at least, and deliver the second-best discounts to date. These are the first times on sale since back in November and one of the only markdowns to date.

Arriving with a handheld form-factor that’s backed by IP67 water-resistance for serenading you in the shower and more, the speaker can also float in water and packs the brand’s usual fabric-wrapped design. That build is now made of recycled materials, and arrives with improved battery compared to the previous-generation model with 14 hours of playback on a single charge rounding out the package around a 360-degree internal speaker system and stereo support. Detailing everything else that’s new this time around, our launch coverage offers a better idea of what to expect.
