We have been hearing rumors that Samsung will be increasing the pricing of its next-gen Galaxy flagship phones, compared to last year’s S22 models. Customers may see price hike in Australia, Europe, and South Korea, and many other countries worldwide. Galaxy S23 pricing could start at $899 in the US. To recall, the vanilla Galaxy S23 model was offered for $799 as its starting price tag for the US customers
A very reliable source is saying that you may take advantage of the pre-order offers to avoid the price hike. Someone updated the fine print on the Samsung UK Business portal with details on the S23 pre-order. Tipster Roland Quandt has spotted specific terms and conditions of pre-order deals on Samsung UK’s business website, before taken down. As per the leak, pre-ordering any Galaxy S23 series device will let you get a free upgrade to a higher storage variant.
If you pre-order a Galaxy S23 by paying for its 128GB version, you will be eligible to get a 256GB version without any additional charge. In case you don’t know, the Galaxy S23+ and S23 Ultra will move up from 128GB to 256GB as the base capacity, while the Galaxy S23 will be sticking with 128GB configuration as the base model for 2023. If you pre-order the 256GB Galaxy S23+ model, you will get a 512GB version without any need to pay additional charges. Similar is the case with the Galaxy S23 Ultra models.
Samsung is expected to offer similar in the other countries too. Samsung had a similar offer for the Galaxy S22 series in the US and other parts of the world in last year. In addition to these pre-order deals, customers can also take advantage of the pre-booking deal for the Galaxy S23 models. Samsung US is already offering a flat $50 or up to $100 in-store Samsung credit to those who pre-reserve a Galaxy S23 on its official website.
Samsung is running a different campaign for the early Galaxy S23 reservations in India. If you are from India and if you pre-reserve any Galaxy S23 model, you will also an e-voucher worth INR 5,000, and you can get your hands on exclusive color variants of the next flagship smartphone. But you have to INR 2,000 if you want to pre-reserve a Galaxy S23 series device, and Samsung will refund this amount if you change your mind about making the purchase.
