We were already expecting higher prices for Samsung’s new Galaxy S23 smartphone models compared to similar models last year, but now we know how much higher they will be. According to WinFuture.de editor and Twitter leaker Roland Quandt, we now have a list of each individual S23 model and its corresponding price in Europe. It’s unclear if other regions will see similar price increases.
Quandt posted a listing on his Twitter account revealing that each S23 model will only be available in two variants. It seems that in doing so, Samsung is trying to encourage the idea of ”upselling”, a strategy similar to Apple’s, which makes the base model more undesirable by limiting internal storage. The “standard” Galaxy S23 starts at 128GB and only goes up to 256, with no 512GB option. Only the Plus and Ultra variants start at 256GB and go all the way up to 512. The source of this information appears to be from the area retail in Spain. In some countries they are 10 euros cheaper (Germany and Benelux countries).
How much do Samsung’s Galaxy S23 series phones cost
- Galaxy S23 8+128 GB – 959 euros (4,795 lei)
- Galaxy S23 8+256 GB – 1019 euros (5095 lei)
- Galaxy S23+ 8+256 GB – 1,209 euros (6,045 lei)
- Galaxy S23+ 8+512 GB – 1,329 euros (6,645 lei)
- Galaxy S23 Ultra 8+256 GB – 1,409 euros (7,045 lei)
- Galaxy S23 Ultra 12+256 GB – 1,589 euros (7,945 lei)
Prices in lei were adjusted from the euro at a rate of 5 lei for one euro, the rate used mainly by electronics companies. No official confirmation of prices for Romania yet. They may be different when phones are listed in local stores, and there may be special discount offers or accessories included in the standard price when pre-ordering.

The Galaxy S22 models started at a price of 4,199 lei for the 128 GB variant and 4,449 lei for the 256 GB variant of the base model for pre-order, a price that included a pair of Galaxy Buds Pro as a gift. Thus, an increase of around 100 euros can be expected for each model compared to last year’s variant.
