With Samsung Galaxy S9's release date fast approaching, several leaked information about the awaited gadget is popping up. Leaks of the detailed specifications are already out. However, one important question remains unanswered: how much is the new smartphone?
Evan Blass, a famous phone leaker, revealed on Twitter the price increase made by Samsung. According to Blass, the Galaxy S9 will cost €847 or $1,044 while the Galaxy S9 Plus will be around €997 or $1,220.
According to Forbes, the Galaxy S9 Plus will feature a superior dual camera. It is also reportedly recommendable to purchase the larger Galaxy S9 as compared to the smaller version in consideration of the new camera features.
A Samsung official said, "Although the domestic price of the Galaxy S9 will increase, it will be decided at a level where consumers do not feel burdened."
The Galaxy S9 will feature a variable aperture with automatic switching between f/1.5 and f/2.4 to capture the best possible shot in different light conditions. The front camera is an 8-megapixel camera with an f/1.7 aperture and autofocus which is not normally possessed by smartphones' front cameras. Shots are improved in low-light conditions and slow-motion footages are set to be captured.
