Samsung has confirmed that they will be hosting a Galaxy Unpacked event soon in which the Galaxy S22 series is expected to be announced. Now, according to a report from earlier this month, the alleged pricing of the phones was revealed, and now we have a bit more details about it.
This is according to a tweet by WinFuture.de’s Roland Quandt where he revealed the EU pricing for the phones and the various SKUs that Samsung will offer. Note that the prices listed are in EUR, but they are roughly in line with what we had previously seen, but what we wanted to direct your attention to is the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra’s base model.
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

Assuming Quandt’s information is correct, it seems that the base Galaxy S22 Ultra will only come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and is priced at 1,249 EUR. This means that in terms of pricing, it is pretty much the same as the Galaxy S21 Ultra when it was first launched, but instead of 12GB of RAM, you’re only getting 8GB.
While it is maintaining the price, technically you would be getting less “value” in the RAM department. Presumably this is because Samsung is hoping that customers will opt to purchase the more expensive model one tier above which comes with 12GB of RAM, but will cost 100 EUR more.
Nothing has been confirmed yet but Quandt has proven himself in the past so it stands to reason his information could be accurate. Either way, we’ll have to wait and see but in the meantime, those who are interested can reserve a unit now and get $50 in credit towards accessories.
