    The Galaxy S23 Ultra is the talk of the smartphone world right now, thanks to its insane 200MP camera and all other performance and battery life enhancements. Everyone wants to get their hands on the Galaxy S23 Ultra, and there are plenty of good reasons to go ahead and pre-book the phone. But this year, Samsung has bumped up the price in India, the UK, and other countries while keeping the same price in the US.

    The Galaxy S23 Ultra is priced at $1,199. If you pair it with the top-of-the-line smartwatch from Samsung, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, you are looking for a bundle that will cost you $1,650. That isn't the kind of money everyone has in their pockets. However, 100 fortunate customers in Sweden were to get the Galaxy S23 Ultra and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro along with a bunch of other Samsung Galaxy accessories, including the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro and the Wireless Charger Trio set, all in a mystery box that cost just under $800. Amazing, isn't it?

    Some lucky Swedish buyers got $2,000 worth of Samsung products, including Galaxy S23 Ultra for just$720

    Swedish carrier Comviq, in partnership with Samsung, held a promotional deal during the Galaxy S23 series launch. This amazing deal included selling mystery boxes for around $720 a piece, which were limited to only 100 in stock. Looking at the contents inside, the total cost of the mystery box could easily cross $2,000.

    Another good thing about this offer from Comviq was that the customers who bought these mystery boxes received the Galaxy S23 Ultra as early as the Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event. Others still wait to get their hands on the phone since the device is still in the pre-order phase. You may want to believe that all this is a scam, but according to multiple user reports, this limited stock deal was very much a reality on a phone that is yet to ship worldwide.
