Initially expected for the beginning of February 2023, Samsung’s next high-end smartphones, from the Galaxy S23 series, could possibly be presented later… A leaker seems to have found the reason for this potential report. Explanations.
Samsung could well delay the release of its future flagships, the Galaxy S23. While their predecessors, from the Samsung Galaxy S22 range, were unveiled at the beginning of February 2022, the brand’s next high-end models may well be subject to a slightly longer wait. It is rumored that the South Korean manufacturer was planning to postpone their presentation, and this for a very specific reason…
The price of the Samsung Galaxy S23 not yet fixed?
If Samsung’s next flagship seems ready to be presented to the world, given the many rumors circulating about it, rejected in any case to believe that we already know almost all of its technical characteristics, it would seem that one last element essential to its late sale to be defined. Indeed, according to recent rumors, the Korean manufacturer has not yet decided on the supposed prices displayed for the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra.
If it wants to remain competitive against the competition, without reducing its profit margin too much, Chaebol must calculate the most judicious price for its new flagships. What seems to be a real headache, especially since the recent presentation of the Xiaomi 13, which promises to shake up the high-end smartphone market with a premium technical sheet for the most competitive price. According to a statement by the well-known @TheGalox, quite reputable in the industry, it is indeed this pricing issue that was giving Samsung a hard time, knowing that the brand should offer models with more or less similar technical data sheets, equipped in particular with them. also from Qualcomm’s all-powerful new chip, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. In a post published on December 16 on Twitter, the leaker claims that the release of the Samsung Galaxy S23 is certainly possible “Mid to end of February“, translate: “Middle or end of February“. And therefore to specify the reason for this (slight) delay: “It is the price decision that is delaying this release.“
The leaker otherwise submitted satisfactory prices, “if it only includes (him)“, Samsung’s next flagships could be displayed: $799, probably for the “standard” Galaxy S23, $899 for the Galaxy S23+, and $1,199 for the Galaxy S23 Ultra. There are only suggestions, we note that such prices would only apply to the American market, and that in Europe the prices of these new models could be more substantial depending on the taxes applied such as VAT, private copying or again eco-participation.
