Known insider Roland Quandt has allegedly leaked the pricing for the entire Samsung Galaxy S22 line-up. And if you’d been hoping the Galaxy S22 price would be cheaper than the S21 then we have some bad news for you. It looks like the S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra will have the same starting prices as its S21 counterparts, but there are a few important differences to point out.
While the S22 will allegedly be priced at launch at €849, the same as the S21, it’s believed this newer Samsung handset will be smaller.
According to leaks, the S22 will have a screen size of six inches – compared to the 6.2inch screen size of the S21.
The S22 Plus prices are expected to begin from €1,049 with S22 Ultra prices starting from €1,249.
However, there are some key differences with the S22 Ultra line-up, according to leaks.
The €1,249 S22 Ultra is believed to be fitted with 8GB of RAM, while the S21 handset that cost the same price had 12GB of RAM.
While the highest spec S22 Ultra handset is expected to have 12GB of RAM, compared to 16GB of RAM seen on the top-spec S21 Ultra.
So, on one front at least, you’ll be getting less hardware for your money if you’re going for this year’s Ultra.
Speaking about the S22 pricing, Quandt said: “Whoever said S22 series was to be cheaper, didn’t think of Covid, parts shortages and inflation.
“Actual official EURO prices: 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.”
Elsewhere, leaks have claimed that the S22 Ultra will have one big design difference compared to the S22 Plus and S22.
Alleged dummy units for the S22 range have shown the S22 Ultra will have a striking rear design which boasts no combined camera bump.
This, along with the matte black colour scheme seen on a dummy unit, offers a more cleaner and simplistic look.
Elsewhere, the S22 Ultra will have a design that looks more reminiscent of a Samsung Galaxy Note handset – with more squared edges instead of the rounded ones seen on the S22 Plus and S22 dummy units.
You can see a mock-up of how they will look, thanks to renders created by LetsGoDigital.
Samsung has confirmed its next Galaxy S phones will be revealed during its February Unpacked event, which reportedly will take place on February 8 or 9.
