While Samsung was expected to announce its next Galaxy S flagships in February, a new leak suggests the company may have planned a price change for its high-end line of phones. According to a tweet spotted by Android Police from Roland Quandt of WinFuture, European prices for the Galaxy S22 series will start at €849, with the base Galaxy S22 Plus and Ultra models set to cost €1049 and €1249 respectively.
In effect, this means that in 2022, Samsung’s Galaxy S line will cost as much as it did in 2021. Additionally, Quandt’s tweet suggests that the company will continue its practice of charging a €50 premium for increased storage. on Standard and Plus models.
What could change is that Samsung could tweak the Ultra variant of the base model to offer less value than its predecessor. In Europe at least, the €1,249 Galaxy S22 Ultra will come with 8GB of RAM, Quandt says, and will cost the same as the entry-level Galaxy S21 Ultra, which has 12GB of RAM.
European consumers will have to pay a €100 premium to get the S22 Ultra with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. It’s unclear if Samsung will implement the same pricing strategy in the US.
As Android Police points out, a separate leak earlier this month suggested the company might charge an additional $100 in the US for each model in the Galaxy S22 lineup. As always, we’ll have to wait for the company to share official pricing information before we know how much it will cost to own the latest Galaxy S phones.
