Rumour has it that Samsung has finalised prices for the Galaxy S22 series in Europe. While the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ will be as expensive as their predecessors, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will start at €50 cheaper than the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Only Samsung's premier smartphone will launch with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, in Europe at least.

According to Roland Quandt, Samsung has finalised European prices for the Galaxy S22 series. Reputedly, the upcoming flagships will cost between €849 and €1,449, depending on the model chosen. However, the Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra will cost at least €1,049 and €1,249, respectively. Quandt states that Samsung has segmented the Galaxy S22 series by the following memory configurations and prices.

  • Galaxy S22 (8 GB/128 GB): €849
  • Galaxy S22 (8 GB/256 GB): €899
  • Galaxy S22+ (8 GB/128 GB): €1,049
  • Galaxy S22+ (8 GB/256 GB): €1,099
  • Galaxy S22 Ultra (8 GB/128 GB): €1,249
  • Galaxy S22 Ultra (12 GB/256 GB): €1,349
  • Galaxy S22 Ultra (12 GB/512 GB): €1,449

Like the Galaxy S21 series, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ will not be available with a 512 GB storage option. Samsung will not equip either with a microSD card reader, leaving the Galaxy S22 Ultra as the only option if you need more than 256 GB of physical storage. Also, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will be the only Galaxy S22 series device with 12 GB of RAM.

In short, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ will be as expensive as last year's models. By contrast, the cheapest Galaxy S22 Ultra, which has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, will be €50 cheaper than the equivalent Galaxy S21 Ultra. On the other hand, Quandt states that the Ultra's 256 GB and 512 GB configurations are slightly pricier this year. Presumably, Samsung has justified this uplift by offering only 12 GB of RAM.

Incidentally, Quandt has not mentioned the Galaxy S22 Ultra's rumoured 16 GB of RAM configuration, which also has 1 TB of storage. All Galaxy S22 series models are expected to arrive in Europe exclusively with the Exynos 2200, Samsung's new 4 nm chipset that it unveiled this week.
