Possible European pricing information for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 series has been released by reliable leaker Roland Quandt, as reported by android police. Samsung appears to have adopted its pricing from the previous S21 range, with the only inconsistency being a similarly priced S22 Ultra model that supposedly comes with less RAM than its S21 predecessor.
Whoever said the S22 series would be cheaper didn’t think about Covid, parts shortages and inflation.
Actual official EURO prices:— Roland Quandt (@rquandt) January 22, 2022
S22 8/128GB = 849
S22 8/256GB = 899
S22+ 8/128GB = 1049
S22+ 8/256GB = 1099
S22 Ultra 8/128GB = 1249
S22 Ultra 12/256GB = 1349
S22 Ultra 12/512GB = 1449 pic.twitter.com/QRnfrhkzTz
Quandt claims the S22 starts at €849 (~$963), the S22 Plus costs €1049 (~$1,190), and the base S22 Ultra costs €1,249 (~$1,417). It seems that all the base models in the series will come with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage – the standard S22 and S22 Plus have a more expensive option of 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, while the S22 Ultra offers two additional tiers that have 12 GB RAM with either 256 GB or 512 GB storage.
These prices are identical to those of the S21 devices, but as indicated by android police, Quandt’s leak indicates that the base S22 Ultra may come with just 8GB of RAM instead of the 12GB that the base S21 Ultra has. Despite this, the S22 Ultra may still be the same price as the S21 Ultra – a €100 premium gets you the extra 4GB you’re missing out on.
You can pre-order a Galaxy S22 device before it’s even announced at the Samsung Unpacked event in February, which will give you $50 in credit toward your purchase. if android police points out, US pricing information for the devices leaked earlier this month, with the base S22 reportedly starting at $899, the S22 Plus costing $1,099 and the S22 Ultra costing $1,299. If these prices are true, this would represent a $100 increase across the board.
There is a lot of leaked information about the S22 series floating around the internet, giving an almost complete picture of what the lineup could look like. Previous leaks show us an S22 Ultra that resembles the reportedly discontinued Note (complete with a stylus), while another gives us an early glimpse of what appears to be all three S22 dummy units in an unboxing video.
