Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ pricing in Euros leaked

Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ pricing in Euros leaked
For many of you out there, Sunday can't get here fast enough. For this Sunday, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+ will be introduced during the manufacturer's Unpacked event in Barcelona. It's hard to believe that a year has gone by since Samsung, ditching tradition, showed up at the 2017 MWC trade show without a new flagship to introduce. Instead, the company showed off the Samsung Galaxy S8's new Infinity Display with the help of a video.

Unlike last year, when the LG G6 kicked off the 2017 flagship smartphone season at MWC, this year Sammy will be first. A tweet disseminated today by tipster extraordinaire Evan Blass reveals the pricing for the Galaxy S9/S9+ in Euros. Blass says that the Galaxy S9 will cost 841€ ($1,037 USD at current exchange rates). The Galaxy S9+ (which carries a larger screen and a dual camera setup in back) will be priced at 997€ ($1,230 USD). Do not make the mistake of thinking that the dollar figures constitute the state-side pricing for the two handsets. These figures are based solely on current exchange rates; they are shown to give you an idea about how cheap or dear the pricing is for the two phones in Euros.

Among the new features rumored to be included with the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+ are: stereo speakers, enhanced facial recognition that combines an iris scanner with face unlocking, and a rear camera with a variable aperture of f/1.5-f/2.4. In addition, the fingerprint scanner has been moved underneath the camera module, making it easier for users to find the biometric scanner by feel.

Someone less fortunate than you can pay their rent and provide food for their family for a month with $1,050, so, what's your point?

My point is that smartphones prices are going crazy high!!

My point is, it is all relative.

The crazy prices are only high for flagships really. We are also in a time where you can get an amazing phone in the $300-$500 price range...and a very capable phone in the $200 range, that would suit 95% of most peoples needs. Just depends on if you must have the name brand and cutting edge features. I'm ok with their flagship prices.

That's not bad at all. That's barely any more expensive than the S8 were, at least compared to my country, which is in europe. For any americans that thinks this sounds like a lot, i can tell that you that this isn't a lot for a major flagship. I can give you a few examples. The pixel 2 Xl and Iphone X were both released in 2017, so they have had some time to drop in price now, compared to the S9, which haven't even been released yet. The following are the current best prices for the 2 smartphones in my country. Google Pixel 2 XL - 936 € Iphone X - 1074 € Let's take a look at the iphone 8, which has a design from 2015. It's not even debatable that it is an inferior phone, and yet the best price in my country is the following several months after its release: Iphone 8 - 755 € So yeah, these are actually pretty damn good prices for a major smartphone flagship in 2018, especially considering the Iphone X cost 1200 € at launch in 2017.

The denial is strong here.

Denial? Those are literally the prices. What i posted is based on current prices, meaning facts. If it was subjective, then i would concur that i was in denial, but nothing i said was subjective. This was all based on facts. I would say that you're the one in denial, as you're literally trying to disregard facts.

I am pretty sure they are not talking about your country here. Pricing in Europe varies a lot from country to country. Expect a 8-10% price hike from s8 price

How are you pretty sure? What are you basing on it? These are probably the european prices, based on the fact that these prices are shown in €. My country is in europe, therefore it has european prices. I think my assumptions are pretty damn solid, while you're assuming im in the "wrong country", based on what?

Andorra is part of Europe and I can assure you that, they don´t have those high prices. Not even in Spain, where I live. So do your google search before you show us those prices from your local store. Cheers!

I did my google search. These are european prices. I live in a european country, so i did google searches to find the equivalent european prices in my european country, in order to compare. I have made it as clear as i can now. Also, Andorra is barely a country.

As much as I love Samsung, pricing the S8.5 for 999 is foolish.

How can you say it is the S8.5? It has variable camera apature, SD 845, cat 20 or 24 LTE, a separate AI processor, stereo speakers, and more compared to the S8.

No one cares. ALL these flagship phones are worth $300 max.

Nice price, will help iPhone X definately, makes it feel less expensive.

The Iphone X is still more expensive than these prices in my country, which is in europe. It won't help it at all, especially considering that the Iphone X isn't as new as these. I don't see why someone would buy an Iphone X over a Galaxy S9+ or Galaxy S9. Don't start talking about IOS vs Android, as that is completely personal, and isn't objective, which is what im going for here.

This is an s7 with less bezels. The same game the iPhone is playing. Just say you’re buying the phone instead of justifying it to everyone else.

I'm not trying to justify anything, i'm merely trying to combat bulls**t when i see it. I also don't see why you're doubting my character? You can check the prices yourself in my country (Denmark), the Iphone X is still more expensive. Furthermore, i'm not walking around with an S9 as my profile picture, or you know, a freaking Iphone X as my profile picture. Furthermore, i was expecting argument against my claim, not people attacking my character. The S9 is much more different from the S7 than the Iphone 8, 8+ and Iphone X is from the Iphone 6s/7. The S9 has more features than the S7, while the Iphones have actually removed some fundamental features with the newer iphones, which the older ones had.

IPhone X also feels very futuristic next to this. S9 for most is just basicly very expensive S8

40. TechSceptic

Posts: 1156; Member since: Feb 05, 2018

Futuristic? Yep, that's the vague word someone uses when they have no real counter argument as to why someone would buy the Iphone X, without mentioning the operating system, as that is 100% subjective.

Price in USA must be the lowest on Earth. Here, flagships have been beyond $1000 since 2012. One phone here came about $2200 in 2017.

There is something very wrong when our thought process of $1000 plus dollars, euros, yen or what ever your currency equivalent is. Point is these are mortgage payments on phones. Prices need to go down.

I think it's a ripoff. Lol. I'm sure they will still sell a lot of S9, especially for S6 and S7 folks. I think I will keep my S8 a little longer.

11. TechSceptic

Ripoff? The S9 is still less expensive than the Google Pixel 2 XL and the Iphone X, and they have been out for quite some time now, at least in my country.

And those are just as over priced. Phones don't need to cost over $600. It's bulls**te
