Samsung’s flagship devices have prices to match and that makes perfect sense. Devices like the Galaxy S8 have been very well received and many will argue that the company is justified to charge what it does for its flagship devices. However, could it ever be considered to be charging too much for a handset? You might think that when you find what the rumor mill expects the Galaxy Note 8 to cost.
Pricing for handsets obviously varies by market. For example, the Galaxy S8+ costs $850 in the United States, while it may cost more than $1000 in countries where taxes and other tariffs are higher, not to mention the value of the currency itself.
The Galaxy S8+ is currently the most expensive smartphone that Samsung sells regardless of wherever you are in the world. However, it’s now believed that the Galaxy Note 8 might kick things up a notch by asking for €999.
This obviously doesn’t mean that the Galaxy Note 8 will cost $999 in the United States but it’s certainly going to be priced in the same ballpark if this information is accurate.
So what will you get for almost a thousand dollars of your hard-earned money? A handset with a 6.3-inch curved AMOLED Infinity Display with a Snapdragon 835 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It may also feature a 3,300mAh battery, a dual camera system, the S Pen, and Bixby.
Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 8 in the last week of August.
