This will be the cheapest member of the S21 series. This smartphone will reportedly be priced at $700 USD. This will probably result in a European price of about € 750. This device will be presented at the beginning of January, after which the release will take place a week later on January 11, 2022.

Samsung S22 price

Galaxy S22 price forecast

Last year, Samsung managed to surprise friend and foe by marketing the Galaxy S21 cheaper than its predecessor. The device was reduced in price by €150, which came down to a suggested retail price of €850 (8GB/128GB). However, on the other hand, several functions were also removed.

The mobile phone was equipped with a Full HD display and a plastic back panel. Also, the charger removed from the sales package. The Plus model was also put on the market for a lower price, for €1,050 you got access to 12GB/128GB memory. The Ultra model had a suggested retail price of €1,250 (12GB/128GB) at launch.

However, the price reduction has not had the desired effect, as sales of the S21 series have never been this low in the entire history of the S series. The question now is; at what price will the Samsung S22 models be put on the market?

It seems very likely that Samsung is going to implement another price increase. All models are likely to be $100 more expensive on the market. In Europe, this will likely translate into a price increase of €100. For now, however, only the US prices have been leaked. Below is an overview of the expected dollar prices and the probable euro prices.

Expected price Samsung Galaxy S22 line-up:

  • Galaxy S22 (8GB/128GB) : € 950 / $ 900
  • Galaxy S22 Plus (12GB/128GB) : €1.150 / $ 1.100
  • Galaxy S22 Ultra (12GB/128GB) : €1.350 / $ 1.300

For comparison, below are the euro and dollar prices of the S21 series:

  • Galaxy S21 (8GB/128GB) : € 850 / $ 800
  • Galaxy S21 Plus (12GB/128GB) : €1.050 / $ 1.000
  • Galaxy S21 Ultra (12GB/128GB) : €1.250 / $ 1.200

It is expected that most phone models will increase in price next year, partly due to the persistent chip shortages. As a result, manufacturers have to pay significantly more for the processor.

Samsung Galaxy S22 pre-order

Galaxy S22 pre-order periode

During the presale, Samsung often gives a present to everyone who buys a Galaxy S22. Normally, the brand also introduces new Galaxy Buds simultaneously with the S-series devices, these are often given as a gift during the pre-order period.

This time, however, the wireless earbuds will not be presented simultaneously with the S22 series. Next year, the South Korean manufacturer seems to have two new earplugs in the planning. The Galaxy Buds Pro 2 and the Galaxy Buds Live 2.

The Buds Pro 2 is expected in the second quarter of 2022. The Buds Live 2 will be announced in the third quarter. By that time we will be in August, when Samsung will set up a second Galaxy Unpacked event. Presumably, the Galaxy Z Fold 4, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and the Galaxy Watch 5 are officially introduced. However, it is far from that yet.

It remains to be seen what kind of pre-order promotion Samsung will set up for the new S-series devices. The Galaxy Buds 2 included, which will be released in August this year simultaneously with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 on Galaxy Z Flip 3 were presented. It is also possible that Samsung decides to include a charger – it will not be included as standard. Samsung is expected to release a 45W adapter will announce, a Power Adapter Trio with 65W support is also expected.

It remains unclear how quickly the S22 smartphones can be charged. The S21 models support 25W fast charging. Rumor has it that this will remain the same for the new base model. The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus and S22 Ultra, on the other hand, will probably offer 45W support – just like the S20 Ultra and Note 20 Ultra introduced in 2020.

The necessary information is now also known about the colours. The base model and the Plus will be released in four colors: black, white, green and rose gold. The Ultra model will also be available in four colors; black, white, green and dark red.

Presumably the green color differ from the basic and Plus model compared to the Ultra model. The latter is usually provided with a darker color palette that better suits business users. It is unclear whether Samsung also makes a series of exclusive custom colors available, which can only be ordered via the website. That was the case with the S21 series.
