Galaxy S9 pre-orders open March 2 in South Korea, priced higher than Galaxy S8


#1
According to a new report out of South Korea, the Galaxy S9 pre-orders will start on March 2 in Samsung's home market. All three major carriers in the country are said to offer the device. The Galaxy S9 pre-orders will reportedly be live for one week from March 2-8.

The report also mentions that the Galaxy S9 is going to be slightly more expensive than its predecessor. Samsung sold the 64GB Galaxy S8 for 935,000 won or $875 in South Korea and it’s now expected to charge between 950,000 won and 990,000 won or $890-$930 for the Galaxy S9.

As we know what to expect from the Galaxy S9, it's not surprising to hear that it's going to cost a bit more than its predecessor. It was never believed that the new flagship might cost the same as the Galaxy S8.

If the information in this report is accurate then Samsung will open Galaxy S9 pre-orders a week after the handset is unveiled at MWC 2018. It started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 the very next day after unveiling it on March 29. Some reports have suggested that Samsung will stick to the script for the Galaxy S9 as well.

What the hell have they improved to increase cost? Same design, pretty much the same display, the SoC is just a gradual increase nothing near what Apple has done, no new tech. The camera might be better then last year but that's only because the tech is improving but the price of the sensors is still similar to last year.

If the camera has significantly improved and lives up to the marketing it could justify the price increase. Even their press invite says "the camera, reimagined"

Samsung trying to get a feel on the market. Every time they have raised the price people have still bought their products. So they wanting to see how high they can go.

I remember when the iPhone first launched $500 was considered absurd for a phone, now any high end flagship would be considered a steal for $500.

At the rate the market is going, in a few years time we will see $1000 phones as midrange and $1500 as high end.
