The Galaxy S23 price leak suggests higher fees for international customers
The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is set to debut on February 1st, and rumours are swirling about the prices for the new devices. According to recent leaks, the prices for the Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra may be higher in international countries, with a price increase of around €80 ($87) for the S23 and S23 Plus and €30 ($33) for the S23 Ultra compared to the previous S22 series.
This news comes on the heels of research from Korea that suggested a price increase for the Galaxy S23 series was imminent. However, it’s worth noting that Samsung may be planning to maintain the same cost for an extra year as it did with the Galaxy S22 series, which would be good news for customers in the US. This is similar to the strategy used by Apple with the iPhone 14 series.
The cost of mass-producing the Galaxy S23 phones would certainly increase due to recent increases in manufacturing costs, and Samsung seems unwilling to lower costs with its flagship series. However, the new devices are expected to be packed with exciting new features and specifications, including the use of a Qualcomm CPU, next-generation RAM, and UFS storage, as well as a 200-megapixel camera on the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Germany and Benelux it seems to be 949 for S23 base and 1399 for S23U base. No clue about S23+ for these countries. As usual, pricing depends on local taxes, duties etc. There will be some nice deals (like upgrade to next higher mem spec during pre-orders when buying base model)
Roland Quandt, a well-known leaker, has received the alleged price tags for all Galaxy S23 models that Samsung would sell in Spain. The 8GB/128GB Galaxy S23 variant will start at €959 ($1,044) in the region, while the basic 8GB/256GB Galaxy S23 Ultra will cost €1,409 ($1,533). These prices include VAT and are subject to currency exchange rates, which can result in higher expenses for customers in the US.
For comparison, the iPhone 14 costs as little as €1,009 ($1,098) in Spain, while the unlocked cost of the iPhone 14 Pro is €1,319 ($1,435). Samsung will reportedly use a comparable price structure across the European Union, with prices potentially being lower in Germany and the Benelux countries.
Customers worldwide should surely profit from Samsung’s presale reservation bargain, if these numbers are accurate. You may combine the discounts with whatever freebies Samsung may offer you during preorders. It is speculated that one of them may be a free storage upgrade for the lowest model. With only one week to go until the debut of the Galaxy S23 series, we’ll have to wait and see if these rumours prove to be true.
