The S9+ price and features leak again: Super Slow Motion, Super Low Light, and an iPhone X tag

The S9+ price and features leak again: Super Slow Motion, Super Low Light, and an iPhone X tag
Hot on the heels of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ pricing leak from Evan Blass comes another revelation that Samsung will go all in with the tags of its upcoming flagships, this time coming from Spain. 

The promo leaflet from a local bank insider shows final pricing of 849 EUR and 1000 EUR, but does warn that the information is based on what is already leaked in the press, so it isn't clear if they mean the specs, or the phones' pricing. The amounts jibe in with the 841 EUR and 997 EUR tags that Mr Blass posted, though, so it's probably the 900fps Super Slow Motion and f/1.5 aprture Super Low Light features they are referring to as fetched from press leaks. 

The difference of a few Euros can be explained with the fact that prices in EU aren't uniform across the board, but vary slightly from one country to another, with the most expensive ones usually being in Italy, where the S9+ could easily surpass the 1000+ EUR barrier, if history is any indication.

The Galaxy S9 will feature a "reimagined" variable aperture camera, faster chipset, and new color options, while the S9+ adds another camera lens to the mix, but all that jazz won't come cheap, it seems. Fret not, however, as the number in Euros usually stays the same this side of the pond, yet in USD, so we would be looking at an $850 starting price tag of the Galaxy S9 in the US, or about $35/month on a typical 2-year installment plan.

The S8+ last year went for a Benjamin more than the S8 at launch, but its S9+ successor will apparently be about $150 more expensive than the S9, as it now differs markedly from the smaller sibling by landing with a dual camera module on the back. Thanks to the tags on high-end units by Apple and Samsung, global smartphone shipments experienced the largest quarterly drop on record in Q4, but at the same time Apple and Samsung are booking record profits, so the drastic 2017 price increase trend may very well extend into this year as well.

Okay iPhone X Price but you get No iOS 11 No notch Class leading design Class leading camera 1000 fps F1.5 Stereo speakers Headphone jack ... And it's worth nothing to convert the price directly from € to $ ... The official us price will be 949$ ..

Yeah S8 got Oreo 6 months after launch Class leading design? What? Same as last year and they copied vertical camera alignment Class leading camera? X already has that. Stereo Speakers? iPhones have these for years

iPhone x basically stole everything from android phones this year. Amoled (which was "not needed and gimmick" lol) Small bezels (which was "not needed and gimmick" lol) Higher resolution (which was "not needed and gimmick" lol) Dual camera with OIS Fast charging (which was "not needed again" lol) So before you spread your iFanatic bs, try to use you brain.

Not needed at a particular time doesn't mean it won't ever be needed, you stupid.

Vertical camera alignment is considered a subject of copying? You're joking, right?

HTC used vertical camera alignment in 2014.

Samsung should face the reality that Samsung no longer a monopoly of Android world. If you still think you can put a same design with an increased price tag in front of the Chinese OEMs as your competitors, good luck for that. Changing phones like changing clothes. You take Samsung today, Huawei or Xiaomi or OnePlus tomorrow. Competition is a b*tch and consumers love it.

I normally don't like to comment on silly fanboy comments like this but sometimes I cannot resist but to speak up the truth most of these Samsung fan girls trying to smear. No notch because you won't get a proper secure advanced Face ID system! No iOS 11 because it uses typical boring cheap android 7 or probably 8, even cheap $100 hpones have that OS. Class leading design my ass LOLZZZZZ. It's the exact same design of last year's S8, even the essential phone was able to pull off a better design than that and iPhone X design just killed the entire android phone design aspect easily. S8/S9 design is so ugly and typical in this day age. It has a fore head and chin which don't have a purpose and thus just wasted spaces. Redmi Note 5 Pro, Honor 9i which are budget android phones also have similar designs...lol Camera module itself is an exact copy from iPhone X, lenses will be same as S8's hopefully and will have that yellowish and over processed photos anyway. 1000fps is just a marketing gimmick, Sony had that on their flagship last year and it's nothing but a gimmick imo. Welcome to the world of stereo speakers Samsung lol. Even Apple had those since iPhone 7 which came in 2016. It's a shame Samsung still couldn't move forward by abandoning the headphone port in 2018 as it is very old tech which gives inferior quality audio anyway. Wireless audio is the future and everybody must innovate towards that. All this age old tech wrapped in a metal chassis and has android in it for brains >>> for $1000?? No thanks.
