We are just a couple of days away from the MWC 2018 global event that is being held in Barcelona, Spain this year. Tech giants all over the globe are expected to launch their latest flagship devices at the event like HMD Global, Xiaomi, Samsung, Lenovo and Sony to name a few. One of the most anticipated launches is going to be from Samsung with their latest flagship devices, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ which would be unveiled on February 25.
We have already seen a slew of leaks through these months revealing a lot about the specifications and design of the new devices along with its global release date. Now as per reports, the prices of the two devices have also been leaked online. Renowned tipster Evan Blass revealed yesterday that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are going to be much costlier than its predecessors. According to him, the base model, that is the Galaxy S9 may arrive with a price tag of 841 Euros (Rs 67000 approx) while the premium version of Galaxy S9+ may come with a price tag 997 Euros (Rs 80,000 approx).
It is to be noted that the prices of these devices are most likely for the Snapdragon 845 processor versions and no information is available for the Exynos versions that are released in European countries.
The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are quite similar to their predecessors in terms of specs and are expected to launch with two versions, one with Snapdragon 845 for the US and the other with Samsung’s in-house Exynos 9810 chipset for Europe and India. The Exynos version is going to be much cheaper than the US counterparts, though Samsung is yet to reveal the prices.
As per earlier leaks, the Samsung Galaxy S9 may ship with 4GB of RAM while the Galaxy S9+ may come with 6GB of RAM. Another rumor is doing the rounds that a 256GB version of the Galaxy S9+ may also be launched by Samsung alongside the base versions. It is likely to be priced much higher of course, when it launches.
