Snippet -

With every new flagship release, phone prices just seem to continually creep up and up over time.

For instance, Apple’s iPhone X which is not a huge jump over the iPhone 8 Plus, has a premium price bump of $200 which puts it at a starting price of $999. After taxes, that sets it well above $1,000 on checkout.

It now seems that Samsung may be following that industry norm and raising the price of its upcoming S9 flagship. Compared to the respective S8 models, the S9 seems more like a small incremental update rather than something mind blowing.

However, multiple sources seem to point to an increased starting price anywhere from US $800 and more depending on who you ask, versus the S8’s starting price of $720 last year.

ETNews claims that the phone will start at 925,000 and 1 million won (which is around $875 and $925).
TechRadar says the UK price has been bumped up to £789, which is £100 more than the S8’s starting price.

Even though that converts to a few dollars short of $1,100, US prices are normally cheaper, which could translate to a starting price of $800 t0 $850.

The starting price here in the US is about the same as the Galaxy S8. I want to see what the Note 9 brings come this fall.

And the Deep State whispered to Trump “You can’t withstand the storm,” to which Trump whispered back, “I am the storm.”
