US price of Galaxy S23 series surfaced in carrier leak
After a ton of Samsung Galaxy S23 leaks over the past month, it feels like there’s little left to imagine ahead of the official Unpacked reveal scheduled for February 1st. We’ve seen the device in official renders and lifestyle images. It’s a list of all the key specs and we know an amazing amount about upgraded camera systems and software. Pricing was one of the more difficult details to pinpoint, but now official Verizon documents have leaked online that show exactly how much each Galaxy S23 model will cost in the US.
The material was first published yesterday on Reddit’s Samsung Galaxy sub. User deviouslydevious44 shared what appears to be a sales guide for the S23 series.Origin unknown, but established leakers such as SnoopyTech sharing documents, and throw extra weight behind it. There’s no mention of the “Galaxy S23” here, but its “Diamond” codename is what’s associated with the phone dating back almost a year.
Three models of the “Samsung Diamond Series” — DM1 (Galaxy S23), DM2 (S23+), DM3 (S23 Ultra) — also made a brief appearance Verizon retails for the Galaxy S23 at Amazon yesterday at $800, the S23+ at $1,000, and the S23 Ultra at a whopping $1,200. Each model should be available in two storage and RAM configurations, so the prices shown are probably for the base model of each variant.
If those numbers sound familiar, it’s because they’re exactly the same as last year’s Galaxy S22 launch price. Samsung seems to have filed this under “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it”. This is understandable given the $800/$1,000/$1,200 pricing helped the South Korean tech giant ship more phones in Q1 than any other company. 2022.
For those interested in financing the phone, Verizon’s documentation lists 36-month payment plans at $22.22 per month for the Galaxy S23, $27.77 for the S23+, and $33.33 for the S23 Ultra. Leaks continue to give sales reps some buzz in the series, but most of these are just rehashes of information gleaned from previous reports.
Still hesitating at these prices? You have several options. For one, you can pre-order a Galaxy S23 and receive $50 to $100 in Samsung credit to soften the blow. Or, if that’s still too rich for your blood, you can buy last year’s Galaxy S22 right now for the lowest price we’ve seen in months.
