The Galaxy S10 flagship series may have already demonstrated that it is having no trouble with its sales. However, Samsung has arranged a few perks to ensure that the new phones keep flying off shelves. They involve YouTube Premium and Spotify deals; on the other hand, their availability is region-dependent.

According to the latest reports, the Samsung Galaxy S10 series is breaking records in terms of pre-order volumes in some major markets, and beating the Galaxy S9 line in at least one other. However, the incentive train to buy one of these phones appears not to be slowing down any time soon. Google is now offering 4 months' worth of access to YouTube Premium free to owners of these devices.

This announcement was made in a YouTube Blog post on March 8, 2019. It states that anyone in possession of a Galaxy S10e, S10 or S10+ from that day can use the premium version of the Google video app for free over the period specified. This service includes the use of YouTube ad-free; video playback off-screen; video downloads and access to the YouTube Music streaming service. This partnership may be intended to promote the HDR10+ capability of the next-gen AMOLED screen found in the S10, as well as the Premium app itself.

Furthermore, Spotify has also partnered with Samsung to pre-install its app in all units of the S10 sold. This promotion also includes six months of free access to this service's own Premium version. However, this only applies if the customer has never taken up such a subscription in the past. In addition, this offer is only valid in the United States.

This region is also one in which the YouTube Premium promotion is active; the others are Australia, Brazil, Canada (excluding Quebec), Chile, Colombia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Russia, South Korea, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom
