Samsung Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra leak prices for Europe. Samsung’s Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra may cost the same in the US but not overseas. A previous Australian rumor alerted us to the price rises, and today’s leaked European trio pricing corroborates the terrible news. Galaxy S23 basic models cost €100 higher than Galaxy S22 base models (here are all the launch prices from last year to compare to).
The Galaxy S23+ basic model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage will cost €100 more than the Galaxy S22+ with the same specs and €150 more than the Galaxy S22+ with 128GB of storage. 256GB of storage instead of 128GB makes the Galaxy S23 Ultra €150 more costly than the Galaxy S22 Ultra. We can’t directly compare the S22 Ultra’s 8GB RAM and 256GB storage variant.
Samsung Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra leak prices for Europe.
This implies that in Germany and Benelux, the cheapest Eurozone nations (owing to VAT levels), a basic model Galaxy S23 costs €949, and a base model Galaxy S23 Ultra with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage costs €1,399. Although this leak doesn’t specify it for such areas, the Galaxy S23+ will likely cost €1,199 with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

However, the tweet above lists all Spain prices for all models and variants (aside from the 1TB iteration, as the information here is supposedly from a Spanish retailer, and that version might be exclusive to Samsung.com in Spain). Spain’s higher VAT may explain the constant discrepancy between Germany and Benelux. Prices in a more straightforward format:
Samsung will react to inflation by raising prices as other corporations do. The irony isn’t lost on you or us, but if you’re interested in the Galaxy S23 phones, you should save up a little more than you thought. However, Samsung’s pre-order incentives may mitigate these price rises.
