One of the most talked about and most expected smartphone of the season, the flagship Galaxy S9 duo is going to be pricier than we think if latest revelation is to be taken seriously. The Galaxy S9 is expected to come equipped the latest chips built on the second generation of its 10nm FinFET process, while its camera capability has been greatly enhanced, both in and out. The device has been enmeshed in a series of leaks and renders in the past couple of months, you can check the full load down here, the latest leak is that of the European prices for the Galaxy S9 duo as shared by industry insider Evan Blass.
Gizchina News of the week
According to Blass, the plus-sized Galaxy S9 Plus will retail for as much as €997, or $1,229, while the base Galaxy S9 will go for €841, or approximately $1,037 in the EU region. These figures somewhat cement our earlier report on the Galaxy S9 duo prices in the EU, taking into account the 17-percent to 27-percent VAT required on most household electronics in that region.
It is worth noting that the quoted figures may not be the general EU average for the Galaxy S9, as a twitter user has pointed out to Mr. Blass that these may not be correct for Germany, so we expect slight variation in some markets within the EU.
Galaxy S9 duo is expected to retain the familiar look of the Galaxy S8 and will highlight the Snapdragon 845, a dual camera (Galaxy S9+) and IP68 water and dust resistance. Not to mention Android Oreo and an Infinity Display are also widely expected.
You can hope on us for full and official details later on.
