    When Are Most New Samsung Microwaves Released?

    Over the last 3 years we couldn't see any obvious trend in the release month for new Samsung microwaves.

    Last year most new Samsung microwaves were released in August, with nine new Samsung microwaves released that month. November was the biggest month in 2017 for new Samsung microwaves, with seven new Samsung microwaves released that month. 11 new Samsung microwaves were released in December 2016 making it the biggest month that year for new Samsung microwave releases.

    .

    How Fast Do Samsung Microwave Prices Drop After Release?

    Samsung microwaves tend to depreciate faster than most microwaves.

    Most microwaves drop in price by 3% in the first 6 months after release. On average Samsung microwaves drop in price by 9% in the first 6 months after release. That means that on a typical Samsung microwave costing £228 you could save on average £20 by waiting 6 months before buying.
