Latest Samsung Galaxy S23 leak reveals how much you'll pay for each phone


We know that the Samsung Galaxy S23 phones are launching on February 1, but we're not sure yet how much they're going to cost. A new leak sheds some light on what the starting prices might be for these handsets in the US.

Well-known tipster @RGcloudS on Twitter (via Notebookcheck) has posted pricing for two Galaxy S23 models, two Galaxy S23 Plus models, and three Galaxy S23 Ultra models – that's pretty much all of them, though one S23 Plus variant does seem to be missing.

It seems Samsung has managed to match last year's Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus prices with the new models, though the Galaxy S23 Ultra looks like it will be more expensive than its predecessor (the cheapest model does come with double the internal storage though).

Those prices in full

According to this source, the Galaxy S23 will start at $799 for the model with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, while the version with 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM is going to set you back $849.

As for the Plus model, we're looking at $999 for the version with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, and $1,049 for 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. We think there's going to be a 512GB version too, but it isn't mentioned here.

Finally the S23 Ultra is supposedly going to cost $1,249 (256GB of storage, 8GB of RAM), $1,349 (512GB of storage, 12 GB of RAM), or $1,499 (1TB of storage, 12GB of RAM). The Galaxy S22 Ultra started at $1,199 with 128GB of storage.

Analysis: pricing pressures

Up to this point, the majority of the rumors swirling around the Samsung Galaxy S23 have suggested that these phones will cost more than their Galaxy S22 equivalents – what with inflationary pressures, the ongoing battle with the coronavirus pandemic and several other factors combining to push prices up.

Now it looks as though Samsung might be able to hit last year's prices, at least on the standard S23 and the Plus model. It's possible that the company execs have decided to take a hit on the profit margin to avoid pushing prices any higher.

And that's understandable – with most parts of the world in a less than healthy economic position at the moment, people are going to be watching their budgets very closely indeed. It's not easy right now to justify a large outlay on a smartphone upgrade.

We haven't included the international currency conversions above because it's unlikely that Samsung would use them. If the pricing stays the same across the board for the two cheaper phones though, then that's £769 / AU$1,249 for the standard model and £949 / $1,549 for the Plus model.

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
