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...

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.

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

Well, I think a phone should cost 20k€. Anything cheaper is bulls**te.

Wow..... It s not expensive at all. Samsung is doing a bad job pricing the S9 at 1,050. Cant wait to pay 1,500.00 to 2,000.00 every 6 to 9 months for a new phone.

They really think of us ( customers) as bunch of brainless, unintelligent and stupid. Most people dont even use 50% of the phones features. With so much alternatives out there with great functionalities. Why would I spend 1,000.00 for a phone that will be slowing down in another 9 months?

"It's called hating. Also, there's a lot of samsung news, so why dont you move your ass over there and admire what you bought?" That's what you said to me in an Apple article because I mentioned Samsung. How about taking your own medicine?

The difference is my friend, I said a truth, while you were just hating.

According to who? You? Nice logic. So, you said a truth, because you said so? Oh man, people must really feel smart in your company.

Buddy, have you read all the comments? Even the biggest samsung fans agree that increasing the price is stupid and "apple like". 1000$ for a phone is just too much in both cases.

If you find them expensive, you know you can just... not buy them?

These are european prices, and these prices for the S9 don't even come near what the Iphone X cost, which your profile says you have, but now you're judging people for spending too much money on a smartphone, when it's cheaper than the one you bought? Freaking isheep.

Hahahaha, and who the f**k are you to judge me? I wasnt judging anyone except samsung for going after everything Apple does, which in this case, is not cool.

My guess US price will be $799 for S9 and $949 for S9 Plus....No way that Samsung would price themselves out of the market with an S8 2018 version update.

It's a lot more than just an "S8 2018" version, it has several substantal changes. It's definitely a much bigger change than any of the miniscule changes that happened from the Iphone 6 to the Iphone 8, which is a 3-4 year span. Actually, there was one massive change, they removed the headphone jack! So they actually took away fundamental and essential features during that time without really adding anything nearly as important as the headphone jack.

The headphone jack is not a feature and it is not essential; one can still listen to music (this is the feature), using lightning headphones or wireless ones.

"The headphone jack is not a feature" The headphone jack is a hardware feature! " and it is not essential" That's subjective.

86. Leo_MC

The feature is "listening to sound", the jack is a hardware component that allows a headset to connect to the phone's sound system, just like lightning or USB ports are. "Essential" means that one can't live without it, if one wants to listen to sounds; which is false, as long as one has the option to use lightning/USB wired headsets or wireless ones.

Here in India iPhone X base model costs about $1370.00 and 256GB costs about $1520. iPhone 8Plus, Pixel XL2, and Note8 also cost about $1000 for the base model. Except for the USA, rest of the world has been paying $1k plus for flagships for a while now. That doesn`t justify the pricing though.

Hahaha samsung is trying hard to be apple. In 1000 dollar only a moron can buy this phone or if one has not used iphone x(or a person is owl and will shoot photos during night with f1.5 aperture). Proud owner of iphone x.

You could say exactly the same for people who bought an Iphone X, which is substantially more expensive, as these are european prices and therefore include VAT. The Iphone X was 1000$ in the US, while it was actually 1.480$ in Europe, and people still bought it. I would say that they are much bigger morons, as they spent more money on a smartphone. Or are you only allowed to use your train of thought when looking at one brand's consumers, but not the other's?
