We are officially less than a week away from the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S23 lineup. Next Wednesday, the Korean tech giant’s flagship series for 2023 will finally be revealed. Roland Quandt, a well-known tech tipster, has revealed yet another leak that suggests Samsung is raising the price of the Galaxy S23 in at least in the European Union. Quandt has previously disclosed data on retail prices in Denmark and Spain. All S23 models reportedly cost more than the models from last year in all pf those markets, by roughly $100 to $120.
S23 pricing from a Spanish retailer: S23 8/128 959 Euro S23 8/256 1019 Euro S23+ 8/256 1209 Euro S23+ 8/512 1329 Euro S23 Ultra 8/256 1409 Euro S23 Ultra 12/512 1589 Euro While the exact pricing may vary across the EU due to various local VAT & stuffs, one thing is nearly certain: the Galaxy S23 will make the purchase decision a little harder for the Europeans fans.

Now that we know for sure, we can predict that the Galaxy S23 will cost more in the EU and, most likely, the UK.
