Galaxy S9 Leak 'Confirms' Samsung's Expensive Secret

The Galaxy S9 is roughly here. We know a good news and bad news, and there is a minute selection list showing each vital feature. But now new pricing information from one of a Internet’s some-more arguable sources raises a question: has Samsung labelled a new smartphones too high?

Breaking a news stems from arguably a world’s many acclaimed leaker and all-around good man Evan Blass (aka @evleaks). In a new tweet, he suggested Samsung will boost a cost of a Galaxy S9 to €847 and a Galaxy S9 Plus to €997, that’s $1,044 and $1,220 respectively. These tie-in with UK cost leaks final week.

Galaxy S9 final pattern – exclusive

Furthermore, you’re some-more expected to wish a incomparable Galaxy S9 Plus than ever before since this year Samsung will mangle from tradition and give a Galaxy S9 Plus a higher twin camera. There’s zero like spending €847 on a smartphone usually to feel like we got a defective model.

But to put this in perspective, while Samsung is augmenting a prices, a costs might not be utterly as most as they seem.

Last year a Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus cost €799 and €899 when they launched in Europe since a) European prices always embody sales tax, and b) phones are typically some-more costly there. That pronounced these are still increases that will positively be upheld on to a US market, quite that circa €100 ($123) cost strike to a Galaxy S9 Plus.

My guess? Before sales tax, I’d pattern a Galaxy S8 to come in during $799 and a Galaxy S8 Plus during $899-$949.

Perhaps a irony in high such prices is they expected come from something for that Samsung is frequently accused: duplicating Apple. With a iPhone X, Apple valid there is an assembly for a $999 smartphone and it’s transparent a reward pattern of a Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus some-more closely resemble a iPhone X than a bezel-heavy $699 iPhone 8 and $799 iPhone 8 Plus.

Besides, while Samsung might ask roughly $1,000 for a smartphones in 2018, it appears Apple will direct as most as $1,400 with a introduction of a iPhone X Plus.

At some point, business will contend “No More!” But with two-year contracts severely assisting to finance a upfront cost, we aren’t there yet…
