Samsung Galaxy Tab S9, Galaxy Tab S9 Plus and Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra leak points to European price increases for flagship Android tablets
Alleged pricing details for Galaxy Tab s9 tablets have emerged online, courtesy of SamInsider. For reference, Samsung is expected to release a trio of flagship tablets under the series on July 26, with Fan Edition (FE) branded editions due a few months later. Additionally, Samsung will showcase the Galaxy Tab S9, Galaxy Tab S9 Plus and Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra alongside the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5, European prices for which have also recently leaked.
Incidentally, this year's smallest Galaxy Tab S model ships with fewer rear-facing cameras than its predecessor and the rest of the Galaxy Tab S9 series. Nonetheless, the Galaxy Tab S9 start at €929.95, including VAT, approximately a 21% uplift over the cheapest Galaxy Tab S8. As the screenshot below shows, Samsung only includes 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and Wi-Fi connectivity for this price, with more memory alone taking the 11-inch tablet over €1,000. Presumably, Samsung will charge in excess of €1,100 for a cellular connectivity option that also has 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Tab S9 Plus will retail for €1,149 with the same amounts of storage and RAM, another 21% increase compared to its predecessor, which started with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Likewise, this year's 'Ultra' model appears to cost 19% more than last year's, with Samsung charging €1,369 for a Wi-Fi-only version that has 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. Please note that prices may vary between Eurozone members because of VAT rate differences; Unfortunately, SamInsider has not revealed to which Eurozone member these prices apply. Regardless, all Galaxy Tab S9 models will ship with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipsets and rumoured to adopt Dynamic AMOLED panels across this board, unlike their Galaxy Tab S8 predecessors.
