Best Black Friday 2021 phone deals: What smartphones will be discounted in 2021?

The Black Friday sales are usually a good time to buy a new phone, with discounts across many of the devices launched in the previous year. 

We're some way from November when the Black Friday sales will start, but if you're thinking about buying a new phone then you might want to wait a couple of months to get the best deal you can on Black Friday. There are often incentives from networks, like good deals or discounts on SIM packages, for many, it's heavy discounts on phones that people want. 

We'll be checking all the prices and delivering the best deals that you'll find in mobile phones for Black Friday right here.

When will the Black Friday sales start?

Black Friday is scheduled to start on 26 November 2021, followed by Cyber Monday on 29 November. But the sales event will span these weeks, with black tag events often starting up in the middle of November and running for a coupld of weeks. 

Phones are very much a part of this and you'll see rolling deals on different models throughout the sales period - and we've often seen some models or capacities sell out quickly once the sales start - especially from popular retailers. 

What phones do we expect to get discounts?

That's the big question. Often there aren't discounts on the very latest models, so the new iPhone is unlikely to be discounted, but the iPhone 12 and older models are all likely to see some good reductions across a range of retailers. 

There are some brands that like to discount fairly heavily and Samsung is one of them. It's unlikely that you'll find a big discount on the Galaxy Z Fold 3, but you are likely to find discounts on the Galaxy S21 family and the Galaxy Note 20 - as well as many of the Galaxy A models too. Often, there's some big savings, not just from third-party retailers, but direct from Samsung too. 

Other brands love the sales, with the likes of OnePlus, Oppo and Motorola all common names. Previously we've seen serious discounts on flagship models, for example the vegan leather Oppo Find X2, making it much more affordable.

What out for storage, as sometime times one storage will have a big discount and another might not and also watch out for colours - as some versions of a phone might be cheaper because less people are buying it.

Which retailers offer the best phone deals?

Many retailers sell phones as they are one of the most popular items to buy. That means you have plenty of choices. While some deals won't be great, we'll be picking out the deals worth having in the highlights below. Or, you can go straight to the retailers and browse their discounted smartphones.
