Samsung Galaxy S9 price leaked: industry insider says phone will cost £789

Mobiles

The price of the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be another £100 more expensive than last year’s Galaxy S8. That’s according to a TechRadar source in the UK mobile phone deals industry.

Given that last year’s Galaxy S8 launched at £689, that would mean you’ll need to fork out £789 for this year’s phone – a price that will be hard for many to stomach given that only 24 months ago the flagship Galaxy S7 launched for just £569.

If you assume the US price will be inflated by the same amount, that means the US S9 price will be around $850.

“You can expect the S9 to cost £100 more than the Galaxy S8 when it was released last year,” said our exclusive source. “The truth is that last year’s massively inflated smartphone prices on handsets like the S8, Note 8 and iPhone X have shown that there are plenty of people out there willing to pay these higher prices.”

S9 price revealed

In truth we’re not massively surprised by this news. This year’s flagship phones were always going to be a bit more expensive but £100 more is asking a lot, and pretty much guarantees that this year’s iPhone X follow-up will be the first mainstream phone to land well north of the £1,000 / $1,000 barrier.
