With the biggest annual sales event, Black Friday, right around the corner, most shopaholics are ready to grab some great discounts on items on their wishlists. Platforms such as Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc. have listed and scheduled tempting offers on popular products.
Electronics is arguably the hottest category for pre-holiday sales, with retailers slashing list prices like never before. Now might be the perfect time to pick up an Android mobile phone if you are looking to buy one.
Black Friday marks the day after Thanksgiving and marks the start of the holiday shopping season. This year, the shopping festival is scheduled for November 25. That said, most online retailers have already started pre-holiday celebrations for 2022, giving fans access to great deals two weeks before the actual date.
While most Android devices are pocket-friendly, high-end phones in this segment are known for offering sleek features, smooth performance, great cameras, and more. High-end Android devices such as Google Pixel and One Plus are considered excellent alternatives to iPhones, both in terms of features and price. Upcoming Black Friday sales are expected to further reduce their numbers.
Here are some of the best deals expected on Android phones for Black Friday 2022
1) Google Pixel 6/Pixel 6 Pro/Pixel 6A
The Google Pixel 6 series is currently available at massive discounts from various retailers like Best Buy, Amazon, etc. The budget 6A is available for $299 at Best Buy, $150 less than its list price, as part of a Black Friday sale.
Likewise, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are offered at discounts of up to $249 through online retailers. However, the 6 and 6 Pro deals are not tied to the pre-holiday shopping season. The price of said devices may be further reduced in the near future.
The Pixel 6 series includes three incredibly powerful devices, which run on Google’s latest custom chips, feature impeccable cameras, and are backed by an anti-bloatware vanilla Android operating system. These are definitely the best Android devices to grab during the current and upcoming Black Friday sales.
2) OnePlus 10T / OnePlus 10 Pro
The latest flagship and its slightly underpowered OnePlus variant have captivated many tech enthusiasts with their performance quotients, cameras and associated collaborations, massive battery life, and more.
To top it all off, upcoming sales are expected to feature undeniable deals on the 10T and 10 Pro, making these devices a must-have on Black Friday 2022.
Currently, Best Buy is offering up to $200 off OnePlus 10T and 10 Pro devices. Although the current deals aren’t labeled as Black Friday deals, the discounts are too good to skip. That said, prices could drop further as November 25 approaches.
3) Samsung Galaxy S22, S22+, S22 Ultra
Samsung’s latest flagship series, which released earlier this year, now qualifies for the Black Friday sale. Almost all retailers cut prices for S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra, attracting massive attention from Samsung fans. These devices are definitely worth considering this Black Friday, especially for those looking to pick up a flagship Android phone.
That said, retailers like Best Buy have only listed Black Friday deals for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra so far. The Galaxy S22 is currently only offering a $50 discount. The S22 Ultra is available for up to $300 less, making it a better deal than the S22.
Although the S22+ is offered at lower prices, these offers are not related to the pre-holiday shopping festival. S22 and S22+ could be offered with bigger discounts in the coming days.
4) Asus Zenfone 8

Amazon is currently offering the Zenfone 8 with a discount of up to 29%, but this offer is not related to Black Friday. Prices could fall further in the coming days.
5) Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4
Looking for an unconventional Android device designed to turn heads? The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is expected to offer intriguing discounts this Black Friday. Amazon is currently offering discounts of over $100 on the Galaxy Z Flip 4. However, these deals are not yet tied to the shopping fest, and the price may drop further as the actual date approaches.
