With Samsung set to announce its upcoming Galaxy S flagships in , a new leak suggests the company may have a price change planned for its high-end phone lineup. By a tweet discovered by from WinFuture’s , European pricing for the Galaxy S22 series will start at €849, with the base models of the Galaxy S22 Plus and Ultra slated to cost €1,049 and €1,249 respectively. Effectively, this means that in 2022 Samsung’s Galaxy S range will cost as much as it did in 2021. Furthermore, Quandt’s tweet suggests that the company will continue its practice of charging a €50 premium for a storage boost on the Standard and Plus models. .

What might change is that Samsung may tweak the Ultra variant of the base model to offer less value than its predecessor. In Europe at least, the €1,249 Galaxy S22 Ultra will ship with 8GB of RAM, according to Quandt, and will cost the same amount as the entry-level Galaxy S21 Ultra, which has 12GB of RAM. Consumers in Europe will need to pay a €100 premium to get the S22 Ultra with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. It’s unclear whether Samsung will implement the same pricing strategy in the US. Like Android Police highlights, a earlier this month, it suggested the company could charge an extra $100 in the United States for each model in the Galaxy S22 lineup. As always, we’ll have to wait until the company shares official pricing information before we know how much it will cost to own the latest Galaxy S phones.
