Yesterday, it was reported that Samsung might launch the Galaxy S23 series at higher prices than the Galaxy S22 series in some markets. However, a newly-leaked document from a network carrier in the US has revealed that Samsung will stick to the $800 starting price with the Galaxy S23 series.
A Galaxy S23 series promotional leaflet from Verizon was posted on Reddit (spotted by 9To5Google) a few hours ago. It reveals all the information about the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra, including their features, pricing, announcement date, pre-order date, and launch date. The Galaxy S23 series will be announced on February 1, 2023, and will go on pre-order the same day. The smartphones will be launched on 17 February 2023.
Galaxy S23’s price starts at $799.99 in the US
The Galaxy S23 starts at $799.99, while the Galaxy S23+ will have a starting full retail price of $999.99. The Galaxy S23 Ultra will be sold with a price tag of $1,199.99. Plus, Samsung could offer free storage upgrades for all pre-orders. So, if you pay for the 128GB version of the phone, you will get the 256GB variant at no extra cost.
Of course, there will be carrier contract options, too, starting at $22.22/month for the base Galaxy S23 and going as high as $33.33/month for the Galaxy S23 Ultra. All four phones will be available in four colors: Cream, Green, Lavender, and Phantom Black.
