Confirmed the design of the Samsung Galaxy S9. The price of the Plus model might exceed the 1000€!
A few days separate us now from the official presentation of the Galaxy S9 (and the Plus variant), the new smartphone top of the range Samsung. The leak, also in this case, we are not lacking, seems to become a tradition that the new smartphone will be revealed on the web ahead of time. The last confirmation of the design of the smartphone, and leaked information on the possible pricing of the two variants.
Samsung will unveil the 25th of February, the new Galaxy S9 and S9+, at MWC 2018, but apparently the surprises will be few. The last leak comes from a user in Reddit, shared by XDA Developers suggests that Samsung will reveal its new smartphone using augmented reality. The user has in fact found within the app is UNPACKED 2018 (created specially for the MWC 2018) of the 3D models that the company south-Korean will use during the conference.
These 3D models allow users to observe the Samsung Galaxy S9 from almost every angle. These confirm the design of the device (almost identical to that of S8), the different colors that characterize (lilac, blue, black, silver), the button to call Bixby and the new location of the fingerprint sensor (now under the camera, and not to the side).
We now pass on to speak of the likely prices of the new top of the range Samsung home. Let's start off with saying that the starting prices will be higher than those of the previous models, i.e. S8/S8+. The news comes by Roland Quandt, an informant for German, who proved to almost always reliable in the course of the last few years.
Excuse my shitty danish/norwegian: The Galaxy S9 (64GB) will cost 8790 NOK in Norway, the samsung S9+ (64GB) will be 9790 NOK. Launching in Midnight Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple (in Norway). Pricing is up 1200/1300 NOK compared to S8/S8+. https://t.co/Lapgi5Kla2

According to the sources, Quandt, the Samsung Galaxy S9 in the version 64GB will cost in Norway 8.790 Nok, or about 910€. The Plus version, always 64GB, will cost instead 9.790 Nok, about 1.014€. Many will say that Norwegian is one of the most expensive markets in Europe, but the Italian also not a joke, indeed. It is therefore conceivable that also in Italy the Plus version of the Galaxy S9 will exceed 1,000€.
First Apple with the iPhone X (1.189€ for the “basic” version 64GB), and now Samsung with the Galaxy S9+. Do you think other companies in the sector will adapt to these prices, launching top of the range whose starting price exceeds 1,000€?
