A List of CES 2018 Smartphone Release Dates/Prices From Flipsy

A bevy of new smartphones was unveiled during last week’s Consumer Electronics Show, and we’ve put together a list of those phones with their release dates and prices below.

Those who upgrade to the new phones will be seeking to cash in on their old phones, so I also wanted to quickly remind you that Flipsy.com’s free tools help people get more money for their used phones (an average of 30 percent more than carriers, in cash instead of carrier credit; and even more than sites like Gazelle).

Flipsy.com offers:

  • Instant price comparisons from online buyback/trade-in stores
  • Blue book values for any phone
  • Local store search (to find local buyers for any phone)
  • Price lock information (lock in prices for up to 30 days, then sell later at the locked-in price no matter how much prices have dropped in the interim)
