The Samsung Galaxy S23 line is said to get a price jump in Europe.
The latest reports indicate that as of February, our cousins in the US will no longer be paying for the privilege of owning Samsung’s slightly updated flagship phone. We in Europe, however, may not be so lucky.
Reporter Roland Quandt tweeted a price list for the Galaxy S23, believed to be from a Spanish retailer.
According to these statements, the price of the Samsung Galaxy S23 will start at 959 euros, which is for 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. That’s a pretty significant increase over the equivalent Samsung Galaxy S22 model, which cost €879 at launch.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus will apparently start at €1,209, compared to €1,129 for the equivalent 8GB/256GB Galaxy S22 Plus (which also had an 8GB/128GB option for €1,079).
As for the ultra-flagship Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, it will cost from €1,409 for 8GB/256GB. The same situation in Art Galaxy S22 Ultra was valued at 1,379 euros, which is generally much lower. Then again, that older model had a 128GB storage option priced at €1,279.
Just like iPhone 14 range, it looks like non-Americans will be paying a much higher price for their new Samsung Galaxy phones in 2023.
If recent reports are to be believed, we can at least expect some of them improved low-light camera shots for our extra euros – and, it seems very likely, pounds.
