When is Black Friday 2020?

The day of Black Friday is November 27 this year, the fourth Friday of the month and the day after Thanksgiving.

The US holiday always changes date each year and so Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, do too.

Generally though Black Friday phone deals arrive up to a week ahead of the big day itself from phone retailers.

Meanwhile, mobile networks and plan providers tend to wait for a big reveal either the day before or on Black Friday.

When is Cyber Monday 2020?

Cyber Monday falls three days after Black Friday, on Monday, November 30.

Typically, phone deals extend through the weekend to Cyber Monday – and you may even find there are new deals and discounts announced on the tech-themed shopping day.

What Black Friday phone deals can we expect?

There are always some surprises and companies looks to undercut each other and provide the best possible offers.

This year it’s highly likely the most popular deals will be on the iPhone 11 and Samsung’s Galaxy S20 series.

With the much-anticipated release of the iPhone 12 around September, the iPhone 11 range – still offering incredible power and features – is likely to be key to offers.

Likewise, as a supposed ‘Galaxy S30’ range is predicted to launch early in 2021, Samsung’s flagship S20 models could be the focus of big discounts.

We’d expect a fair amount of premium deals on the likes of Google Pixel and Sony Xperia devices.

Not forgetting more affordable Black Friday phone deals too, with the iPhone SE, and Android devices by Xiaomi and Oppo.

Finally, as SIM-only deals have increased in value in 2020, expect some huge 4G data offers, and possibly 5G SIM deals too.
