Galaxy S9 price revealed to be under 1000 euro

Samsung will only confirm the Galaxy S9 price officially when it unveils the new flagship on February 25 in Barcelona. There have been conflicting reports about the price of the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ with some even suggesting that it could cost more than 1000 euro or $1,000 in Europe and North America.

However, a new leak suggests that this might not be the case and that the Galaxy S9 price might conclusively be under the 1000 euro mark, even though they’re likely to be the most expensive Galaxy S handsets that Samsung has ever sold.

Galaxy S9 price

Prolific Twitter leakster @evleaks has revealed the prices of Samsung’s upcoming flagship duo on the microblogging network. His posts suggest that the Galaxy S9 is going to cost 841 euro whereas the Galaxy S9+ will cost 997 euro.

Given his track record one can place faith in these numbers. Samsung fans can breathe easy knowing that the Galaxy S9+ costs under 1000 euro in the same way something that costs $99.99 is technically under $100 as well. It’s a glass half full sort of thing.

It wasn’t really surprising when reports started surfacing a few months ago that the Galaxy S9 would cost more than its predecessor. That was a given, but at least we have yet to breach the 1000 euro mark for Samsung’s Galaxy S series. What that says for next year’s flagship is another matter entirely.

For the sake of comparison, though, the Galaxy S9 price really is higher than its predecessor. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ were priced at 799 euro and 899 euro respectively. Do you think you would be able to justify the cost of purchase given what we know about the Galaxy S9? It’s not exactly a revolutionary upgrade.

Samsung will officially confirm the Galaxy S9 price and availability details on February 25 when it announces the handset. Pricing and availability will obviously vary by market. Recent reports have suggested that the handset is going to be released on March 16 with pre-orders opening in South Korea on February 28.

They are crazy, phone for 1000€, that’s all because of blind Samsung and Apple fans. But positive thing in all this is that we have now fantastic budget phones like Xiaomi MI A1, Mate 10 lite and similar with great performance for good price so we don’t need to buy flagship anymore.

All these huge prices of mobiles these days are thx to Apple… They set the price and everyone else follows. It’s hilarious to pay 1000 for any mobile device. Look at what you could actually buy for 1000 in anyone’s currency. Nice mobile Samsung but i will stick with the 200 euro J5… Or go buy a new S6, they are still available for 299 euro’s… People need to stop buying into this c**p and realise mobile’s are absolutely not worth the jokers 1000 price tag.

No phone should cost more than $/ £/ € 600.
Phablets are still 5-6 times smaller than any laptop and 3-4 times smaller than most tablets, so how come in term of use of materials phones can be ridiculously more expensive? How can a iPhone X cost almost as twice as the iPad pro? How can a galaxy S8+/ Note 8 cost significantly more than the tab S3? The latest processor and camera sensor CAN’T add that much to the cost when compared to, as I said before, the amount of materials used to make a laptop or a tablet.

Yup, Samsung says cmon new sheeps, give us your 1000e for a slightly resigned piece of glass and we’ll abandon your new gadget in a couple of months, like no one else does! Because we have a lot of work to do on our Note 9. Ridiculous!

997 for the S9+… ouch…. I think Samsung are shooting themselves in the foot here….
When I bought my note8 on pre-order last year it ended up being 983 euro after shipping and exchange rates, ok I got the free dex station.
I most certainly will NOT even consider an S9+ for that price but I guess they are not targeting the Note8 user with this one, but considering that you can get the Note 8 for 750 now, you would be silly to pay extra 150 to get the S9+ instead

It will be slightly cheaper than that: 949€ for the S9+. In some countries you’ll also get a minumum of 100€ for your old device with a Trade In offer Samsung will launch for pre-order.

Simply put if anyone pays the quoted prices aboove then your a Mug! be patient and wait a little Samsung devices drop in price practically every week after it launches.

Plus if you pay those prices at launch you only encourage them to be more expensive next year!

Apple has already learned this lesson with the iPhone X this year, there’s only a certain amount of money people with pay for a small increase in features.

Quite expansive when you know this phone won’t be updated before a whole year :/

The price increase is only 40€ compared to the launch price of the S8/S8+. This time Samsung hasn’t increased the price excessively.

It’s too much for the phone which have software support like cheap Chinese phones.

Guys, prices for these devices in Spain are: S9 849€ and S9+ 949€. There is no mistake about this.

Dear Sammobile, you seem to have a problem. You have been infested by a Samsung haters virus. All positive comments are being voted down by an infestation of trolls. Sammobile itself is partly responsible for this as many of the sites articles are extremely negative. Sometimes criticism is necessary but your people sometimes go over the top. You will be losing the people who are Samsung enthusiasts if this continues. I hope my opinion will count. There is a new independent Samsung fan site that is far more fan friendly and our own Google+ community with over 35,000 members and… Read more »

I think a lot of people here are huge Samsung fan but the problem being a big fan is that they feel they have been terribly let down with the s9 specs and minimal upgrade with higher price. If they went down the previous route of keeping both phones being the same specs with only size being the difference then I don’t think there would be such a backlash. It’s understandable that this is a business and they are out to make money but what they are doing with limiting and making phone that is perfect size for most people… Read more »

I’ll be waiting for Note10 to upgrade from Note8. How expensive will that be?? Ah well, if you want the best you have to pay. When you compare it to rubbish like iPhone and Pixel it’s well worth the money.

Samsung seem to have lost the plot when you can buy the very similar S8 for less than £600 now in the UK. They are asking X prices for what is really an iPhone 8 type phone, but at least iPhone, and the Pixels, get regular updates.

Oh gosh i wouldnt pay 1000$
997$ sounds just great i definitly buying it.
Goooooshhhh whats wrong with the world

HAHAHA lets laugh a little bit now with this sentence “Samsung fans can breathe easy” like 997€ is an amazing price for a device that will not update often and will have to wait long months for big updates,and if all plays well like last year pixel XL even had a better camera…

gasseratef
gasseratef

and according to who or what do we need updates or more software? i mean yes everyone always wants the latest version of anything, apps or software, but nougat to oreo doesn’t add that huge amount of new features that everyone would kill for, like marshmallow to nougat.

and after all samsung DOES NOT release software updates to decrease your phone performance or battery life 😉

SAMgalaxyXXX
SAMgalaxyXXX

I kind of agree with you. I’m not desperate for the oreo update because it doesn’t really bring much to the table and user experience but I do care about the monthly security patches and even on this Samsung is late. I don’t really know if it’s better or worse than other manufacturers but it shouldn’t be and I put it down to the unnecessary amount of phones Samsung releases every year and therefore has to support.

ahhaha, almost a 1000€ for a phone that will only see android P within March of 2019…. no thank you. after a few months and if my thinking is correct many people will not buy on day one.this ridicules price and without any offer on pre reserve,they will have to drop down the price a few €

maybe things change with project treble

deardevil

for your information Samsung didn’t implement project treble with Oreo, based on reports in XDA,so nothing will change even if they say they listen to customers. but only on presentation day…..

For your information, Project Treble is mandatory only for LAUNCHED devices with android 8.0 and up, but optional for those that are updated from a previous version

Samsung now totally on Apple’s pathway. Small incremental updates with ridiculous high prices. Samsung if you really are trying so hard to imitate Apple, then kindly also adapt to their software update policy. Say whatever about Apple but their software support for older models is immaculate.

Like I said before, it should be cheaper than the s8 given its 90% reuse of the s8 component It still has the exact same battery, 4gb ram, 64gb internal, front 8 MP camera, headphones jack, Bluetooth, design, screen and metal shell of the s8!! So how can they justify such high price for slightly faster CPU and pretty much same single lens camera This is a rip off and not value for money. I gave a pass to the s8 for 4gb ram and single lens but come on! It’s 2018 and the base model should at least have… Read more »

They are digging their own grave now. They are as arrogant if not more as Apple now. They give a about users, hardly gives them what they want and their PR department (if that exist) keeps customers in dark and speculating.

Well, we going by the leaks we know that the CPU, GPU and internals are different. So it’s not The SAME 4GB RAM it’s a more efficient one. It’s not the same shell as you say. The fingerprint scanner is in a different place – so they can’t reuse the S8s. And from what people are saying the bottom bezel is smaller and so the front panel is also not the same, again not recycled from the S8s The camera is the BIGGEST selling point and had a variable aperture. Most certainly NOT the same recycled camera. They’re also the… Read more »

It’s not a new 4gb ram unit. Why not 6gb?

Still singles lens camera and the variable aperture sounds like is a gimmick. Still no dual lens.

The front and back is still the same as the s8 therefore even with minor modifications would not result in any huge experience in the actual production line.

The wireless charger hasn’t changed too.

Not really the most feature packed. Even with the s9+ it’s not that big of an update of the note 8

o0MHJ0o
o0MHJ0o

People are calling dual lense a gimmick. And its using a different chipset so its going to be better performing – even at 4GB RAM. The Note8 was the most feature packed of last year, they’re including enhanced facial recognition, dual stereo speakers and improved iris scanning technology. What more do you want? You want more RAM get the S9+ it won’t make a huge difference to your monthly bill. If its not the most feature packed phone, then what is? The iPhone X? I don’t understand why everyone is expecting Samsung to just give away phones every year and… Read more »

Reason for not buying s9+ is because it’s too big and Samsung ploy to make people pay more for a phone that not all want in size

Gtf out here with those ridiculous prices Samsung…s8+ is my last Samsung device…

Google can take my money….

Top of the line phone and is still cheaper than the iPhone X. Plus, you have an S8+, man… You shouldn’t have to worry about updating to an S9+ as it’s practically the same device. Samsung competes head to head with Apple, this is how competion works.

Geez…..if that’s the price for the 9+, what does it say about the Note9?
