Update, July 9, 2020 (01:04 PM ET): BTS Army, listen up! The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus BTS Edition is now in stock at both Amazon.com and Samsung.com. This is not a pre-order, but rather a normal general sale. If you act fast, you could see the new phone on your doorstep this weekend.
There is a bundle available as well that nets you a pair of matching Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus BTS Edition. However, the Amazon listing says this bundle is out-of-stock and wonâ€™t ship for a month. You can buy the Buds Plus on their own, though, from either Amazon or Samsung. You canâ€™t get the bundle from Samsung at all, so if thatâ€™s what youâ€™re looking for, Amazon is your only option.
