Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S23 series is one of the most anticipated smartphones to be launched in 2023. While several details about the smartphone have been leaked in recent months, details on the devices’ potential prices have been sketchy at best.
Rumor has it that the devices will see a significant price increase around the world, but no details have been provided to back up the claims.
However, a new leak seems to confirm the earlier rumor – Samsung’s new flagship devices will be much more expensive than the outgoing Galaxy S22 series.
The base variant of the Galaxy S23, the 8GB + 128GB variant, costs around 959 euros, about 100 euros more than the base variant of the S22. The 8GB + 256GB variant will see a similar price increase, costing €1019.
The base S23+ variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage will be €100 more expensive again, costing €1209, while the 8GB + 512GB variant will cost €1329.
In the Ultra series, the 8GB + 256GB variant costs 1409 euros, while the 12GB + 512GB variant costs 1589 euros. The Ultra series will be 150 euros more expensive.
Note that these are all prices that will apply in Spain, so expect main Eurozone prices to be slightly lower due to different VAT rates.
As for S23 series prices in India, Samsung Galaxy S23 is expected to cost around Rs. 75,000 for the base 8GB + 128GB variant. The Galaxy S23 Plus is expected to start at Rs 80,000 for the 8GB + 256GB variant. Like the top-of-the-line Galaxy S23 Ultra series, Samsung can price the device around Rs 1,10,000 for the base 8GB + 256GB variant.
It looks like Samsung will have to make its devices more expensive than users and even Samsung, mainly due to component supply chain issues and global inflation. However, if those prices prove correct, Samsung’s pre-order offers should take the sting out of the increased prices to some degree.
