Samsung Galaxy S9 Is Listed On Retailer’s Website With A £799 ($1100) Price Tag Along With Other High Estimates
Well folks, we’ve got less than a week before Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are launched. The pair feature regularly on the rumor milll, so we know quite a lot on what to expect. This year, Samsung will refine its 2017 form factor – which is a big hit. The company has reformed its aesthetic skills slowly over the years, and the improvement is clearly visible on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Today, we’ve got more details for their successors. Take a look below for more.
More Alleged Details For The Galaxy S9/S9+ Prices Surface, Marking For A Clear Increase Over The Year
The first solid price leak for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S9 surfaced just a couple of days back. It claimed that the smartphone will feature a £50 increase. Now, more grim rumors come our way. Sources expect that the Galaxy S9+ will start at $1000, matching Apple. However, Samsung will have a tough time justifying this, since the Galaxy S9+ is not rumored to feature a complicated 3D facial recognition setup.
For the Galaxy S9, we’ve got a listing on British retailer Clove, with a £799 price tag. The earlier rumors of a £50 increase put the final price at £739. Now, this listing suggests another £60 increase over the Galaxy S8. If these details make your head go fuzzy, stay sharp. Tipster Roland Quandt also shared his take on the matter yesterday, in the Norwegian Krone.
Excuse my shitty danish/norwegian: The Galaxy S9 (64GB) will cost 8790 NOK in Norway, Galaxy S9+ (64GB) will be 9790 NOK. Launching in Midnight Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple (in Norway). Pricing is up 1200/1300 NOK compared to S8/S8+. https://t.co/Lapgi5Kla2

According to the exchange rates right now, Quandt’s estimates convert into $1130 for the Galaxy S9 and $1258 for the Galaxy S9+. Do take these numbers lightly, as a lot of different factors affect prices across borders. The Clove listing is more realistic, especially as we have seen similar rumors surface lately. If the Galaxy S9 does cost £799, Samsung will really need to deliver with its 2018 successor, the Galaxy Note9.
After all, the S9 and S9+ will not make major upgrades over their predecessors, choosing to focus on the specifics instead. A big exception to this rule is photography; with the Korean tech giant rumored to introduce some big upgrades here. For all Galaxy S fans, you’re going to finally get a dual camera from Samsung. Which, might also include variable aperture support. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. We’ll keep you updated on the latest.
