The Samsung Galaxy S9 price has been leaked again, further cementing concerns that the company's next flagship smartphone may be too expensive for some Samsung fans. Take a look below to find out more. It made drastic changes on the iPhone X, looking to make up for all the previous years' laziness.
While new flagship smartphones bring vast joy, price cuts on previous models is a general practice among brands that many are watchful of. If you hoped that this phenomenon, like True Depth, will remain an Apple exclusive, you're in for some disappointment today.
One of the world's most reliable leakers of tech information, Evan Blass, tweeted the prices of the Galaxy S9 in Europe. With a price point of the high-end Galaxy S9+ close to 1000 Euros, it directly competes with the Apple iPhone X. Now, an official document from a Spanish bank comes to light. As a comparison, the Galaxy Note8 is priced at 999 Euro (about RM4,796) but it retails at only RM3,999 in Malaysia. If these details do bear fruit, then expect Samsung's Galaxy S9+ to match Apple's iPhone X in terms of retail price.
However, the equivalent USA dollar prices of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will likely not be the selling price of the smartphones in the United States. In fact, the Galaxy S9 base variant would be priced higher than the Galaxy Note 8 if the price is accurate. He also gave the example of Samsung Galaxy S8 saying that "For instance, a Galaxy S8 that costs ~800 euros directly from Samsung goes for $725 in the USA". But if these phones get launched in India at the stated prices, the S9 will cost less than the S8 Plus which is selling India for Rs 68,999. Over the past few weeks, the 2018 flagship smartphones have been leaked in some shape or form.
Samsung is promoting the S9 with a tagline "The Camera". We'll keep you updated on the latest.
