Ever since we all got word that Samsung is developing its newest flagship addition for the year 2022, leaks of the upcoming device have made their way to the internet since late last year.
And since the device is not officially announced, Samsung can still throw in a last-minute surprise by adding or eliminating some of the specs that have already been announced.
But now, ahead of the rumored Galaxy Unpacked event this February, a new leak has been revealed with regard to the pricing of the upcoming Galaxy S22 series phones and Galaxy Tab S8 series.
- New details about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A13 leaked
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra renders leaked, might come with a notch

Galaxy S22 phones will be more expensive than expected
There have already been rumors regarding the pricing of the upcoming Galaxy S22 series. But these new details reveal that the official pricing might be more expensive than anticipated.
It looks like Samsung is bumping up the pricing of the newest flagship across by $100. The price tag of the regular Galaxy S22 could start from $899, with prices going up to $1,099 and $1,299 for the Plus and Ultra variant respectively.
To compare it, the Galaxy S21 series launched at a starting price of $799, and the S21 Ultra was priced at $1199.
In a tweet, @chuvn8888 shared the new pricing and even confirmed that the leaked pricing for the Galaxy S22 Ultra is for the base variant. This just means that the high-end models with more RAM and storage will be even more expensive.
Furthermore, the leaker also confirmed that Samsung would only officially reveal the Galaxy S22 series phones and the Tab S8 series at the virtual Unpacked event which will be happening next month.
And get this, there will be no Galaxy Buds launch in the lineup.
As for the Galaxy Tab S8 series, the prices apparently will start under $850 for the regular model. The Tab S8+ prices will range from $900-$1000. On the other hand the Tab S8 Ultra, which features 14.6-inch screen display although there is still debate of the notch, might cost around $1100.
