Samsung Galaxy S23 prices to increase, especially in Europe; save up more than expected for pre-order deals.
Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S23 series is expected to have increased prices compared to their predecessors. Rumors from Australia and Europe have suggested that the Galaxy S23 base model will be €100 more expensive than the Galaxy S22 base model was, while the Galaxy S23+ base model, with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, will be €100 more expensive than the Galaxy S22+ version with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and €150 more expensive than the base model Galaxy S22+ was with 128GB of storage. The base model Galaxy S23 Ultra will be €150 more expensive than the base model Galaxy S22 Ultra, with 256GB of storage instead of 128GB. In the cheapest Eurozone countries, such as Germany and Benelux, the Galaxy S23 should cost €949, the Galaxy S23+ €1,199 and the Galaxy S23 Ultra €1,399.
Although the prices for the Galaxy S23 series are higher than expected, Samsung generally has pre-order deals which can help to offset the cost. Despite this, the price increases are indicative of the current economic climate, as companies are responding to inflation by increasing prices. It is therefore recommended that those interested in the Galaxy S23 phones save up a little bit more than initially expected.
