Pre-orders of either device will come with three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and an Xbox controller, immediately opening the door for streaming Xbox games on new Samsung devices starting September 15.
Announced during Samsung’s latest Unpacked event and reported by our sister site CNET, the deal will be available starting tomorrow, August 6 when pre-orders go live for the Note 20. The Galaxy Tab S7 releases later this year.
The Note 20 retails for $1,000, while a more powerful Note 20 Ultra 5G costs $1,300. If you pre-order at Best Buy, you could save up to $700 on your purchase depending on which device you trade in and also get up to $150 in Samsung credit. The Galaxy Tab S7’s price starts at $649, and a beefier S7+ will be available starting at $849.
Microsoft recently announced that its Game Pass Ultimate subscription, which normally costs $15/month, will begin including xCloud streaming integration at launch on September 15.
