A recent leak has allegedly revealed the European pricing for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 flagship series, which are slated to launch globally early next month. According to reliable leakster Roland Quandt of WinFuture, the standard model will start from EUR 849 (~RM 4,025), while the highest configuration of the Galaxy S22 Ultra will max out at a whopping EUR 1449 (~RM 6,870).
The leak also seemingly dispels prior rumours suggesting that the new series will be sold at a more affordable price range than its predecessor. Quandt says such a thing is unlikely, as component shortages, inflation, and the COVID-19 crisis are still accountable for determining the prices for the upcoming phones.
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 pic.twitter.com/QRnfrhkzTz

Starting with the standard Samsung Galaxy S22 model, the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration is priced at EUR 849 (~RM 4,025), while the 8GB + 256GB is at EUR 899 (~RM 4,262). The Galaxy S22 Plus, on the other hand, is priced at EUR 1,049 (~RM 4,974) for the 8GB + 128GB configuration and EUR 1,099 (~RM 5,211) for the 8GB + 256GB. Lastly, the high-end Galaxy S22 Ultra will be offered in three options, starting with the 8GB + 128GB at EUR 1,249 (~RM 5,922), 12GB + 256GB at EUR 1,349 (~RM 6396), and 12GB + 512GB at EUR 1,449 (~RM 6,870).
It is also worth noting that the baseline configuration of the Ultra actually comes with less RAM than its predecessor, whereas its highest spec model tops at 12GB RAM instead of 16GB. However, there’s also a possibility that configurations for all the Galaxy S22 phones may differ from region to region and, undeniably, the same can be said for their pricing.
Whether Quandt’s information is accurate or not remains to be seen. On that note, we’ll find out soon enough when Samsung officially launches the new flagship series on 9 February 2022.
