[Updated] Galaxy Note 10 might launch for a lower price than initially thought
The Galaxy Note 10 might launch for a slightly lower price than initially expected. While earlier reports indicate that the 256GB variant will start at 999 euro, Twitter user @ishanagarwal24 now suggests otherwise. If the latest info is correct then the Galaxy Note 10 with 256GB of storage will have a starting price of 949 euro, at least in some European countries.
This would make quite a bit of sense considering the Galaxy S10 series’ launch prices. The S10+ with 128GB of storage was released for 999 euros. Comparatively, the Galaxy Note 10 is missing some features such as the 3.5-millimeter headphone jack and expandable storage, but it does come with an S Pen and should employ a more powerful chipset.
Having said that, a lower starting price for the Galaxy Note 10 compared to the Galaxy S10+ is not a bad proposition and might make the device more attractive for prospective buyers who are sore about the removal of the headphone jack and expandable storage.
Same goes for the Galaxy Note 10+
As for the Galaxy Note 10+, the 256GB model will reportedly cost 1,099 euros while the 512GB variant could set customers back 1,199 euros. Again, the same analogy can be drawn where the 512GB Galaxy Note 10+ might be cheaper at launch – by 50 euros – than the 512GB Galaxy S10+ was when it released.
We’ll have to wait and see if this will indeed be the case, but we’re hoping it will, for the sake of customers and Samsung itself. Thankfully we won’t have to wait too long before pricing details will be officially confirmed by the company, as the Note 10 series will be officially unveiled next Wednesday.
Would you be more willing to look at the Galaxy Note 10 or Note 10+ as your next smartphone if the 949 euro and 1099 euro price tags are accurate?
Update: @ishanagarwal24 has followed up with another tweet concerning the possible UK prices for the Galaxy Note 10 series. Thus, the Galaxy Note 10 will reportedly have a starting price of £899 while the Galaxy Note 10+ would cost £999 for the base model. The source adds that these prices are “not fully confirmed” so keep that in mind.
