A leak from a few days ago revealed the possible prices of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ in Norway. Now thanks to a new leak by Evan Blass, it looks like we might have our prices in Europe leaked as well, where the Galaxy S9 will be priced at 841 euro while the Galaxy S9+ will be priced at 997 euro.

Based on direct conversion and on current market rates, this means that the phones will be priced at $1,037 and $1,229 respectively. This isn’t too far off from the previous leak which after conversion of Norway’s NOK to USD, is around $1,130 and $1,258. Either way both leaks seem to suggest that the upcoming phones will be pretty expensive, more so than its predecessors.

This seems to be a trend that we’re seeing in recent times, where smartphone makers are making their phones more expensive with very release. Prior to this, companies would typically try to maintain their prices, but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, at least for the most part where even companies like OnePlus, which started out really affordable, have also seen a hike in prices.

Note that these prices don’t necessarily reflect the actual prices when they come to the US, but either way it looks like the phones could be more expensive than last year’s models, so do be prepared for that. However we have heard that Samsung could be holding a trade-in promotion where users can get up to $350 off the Galaxy S9 and S9+, although details on that promotion aren’t available yet. Either way check back with us during MWC 2018 for the details.
