Recent leaks have revealed when Samsung’s new Galaxy series will be available, and that it won’t come cheap, with the addition of 5G to the new Samsung Galaxy S20 range appearing to have ramped up the cost.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 leaks have come from Max Weinbach on Twitter who has been behind many of the recent S20 leaks.
So just heard S20 prices. Expect these to be lower than listed but at the moment we are expecting:S20 5G: €900-1000S20+ 5G: €1050-1100S20 Ultra 5G: €1300Galaxy Z Flip is supposed to be about €1400 but I expect that to change before launch.January 20, 2020
The good news
The good news is that you can expect the 4G version to be around €100 cheaper. However, it hasn’t been made clear whether countries with live 5G networks will have access to the 4G versions of the phone.
The 4G will be about €100 less than the 5G. As for talking USD, it’s probably going to be less. My guess is $850, $950, $1200. These seem a bit high but these phones do seem like spec beasts. Could justify the price tbh.January 20, 2020
Weinbach appears to hold a fairly optimistic view that the new Samsung 5G phones will be very much worth the expensive price tag thanks to impressive specs. For example, the S20 Ultra 5G version will pack a 30x hybrid zoom and 100x digital zoom.
Having said this, customers appear to hold a slightly less positive view on the price increase, as illustrated in the replies to Weinbach’s tweet.
It's too much. 😭😭😭😭January 20, 2020
That's flippin' insaneJanuary 21, 2020
In comparison to previous generations, the S20 line-up is more expensive. The previous generation started at €750, €900 and €1,000 for the Galaxy S10e, S10 and S10+, respectively.
However, the addition of new specs and 5G could justify such an increase. The S20 trio will reportedly launch in France on March 13th. This would be just a month after Samsung’s Unpacked event in February.
