Black Friday 2019 is here, and it is the perfect time to get the latest phone models for less than those $1,000+ price tags we saw them launch with. Whether you're in the market for a Samsung Galaxy S10, iPhone 11 or Google Pixel 4, we’ve teamed up with our friends SlickDeals to track down the best deals happening this year.

Historically, Black Friday smartphone deals tend to run for several more days than typical Black Friday doorbusters do, but to be safe you should probably act fast to secure the best bargains.
