The Samsung Galaxy S20 series has leaked, leaked and leaked some more. We have seen details on the cameras, the specs inside, the display and the design but we have not seen any leaks on possible pricing — until now.
Overnight Max Weinbach of XDA, who recently leaked a lot of specs and hands on images of the device revealed possible pricing for the Galaxy S20 series. While the pricing is in Euro a simple conversion gives us approximate pricing (minus any Australia Tax that Samsung decide to apply) for Aussies:
So just heard S20 prices. Expect these to be lower than listed but at the moment we are expecting:
S20 5G: €900-1000
S20+ 5G: €1050-1100
S20 Ultra 5G: €1300
Galaxy Z Flip is supposed to be about €1400 but I expect that to change before launch.

For those playing at home that is:
- Galaxy S20 5G: €900-1000 ~ AU$1450-1600
- Galaxy S20+ 5G: €1050-1100 ~ AU$1700-1800
- Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G: €1300 ~ AU$2100
Max does state that these are the early prices he has heard but he expects them to come in a bit lower possibly. It is no surprise that Samsung continue to play in these price ranges with several levels of premium device. The device is rumoured to be available for sale on March 13.
In other Galaxy S20 news rumours have pointed towards Samsung no longer using their dual aperture camera technology. Once marketed as the best thing to ever come to cameras it has died a very quick death after being used for two years, including in the more recent Galaxy Note10.
S20 kills dual aperture.

Galaxy Z Flip
As you can see in the tweet above pricing for the Galaxy Z Flip has also been revealed with it being a relatively affordable €1400 (compared to the Galaxy Fold). This puts it around the AU$2300 mark before any Australia Tax is added.
Other leaks and rumours of the Z Flip include it having a punch hole in the display for the 10MP front camera and a quad camera setup on the rear. The ma1in camera in the rear setup will feature a 12MP camera instead of the rumoured 108MP lens.
It is expected to have a 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED display, 256GB of on board storage and a battery between 3300mAh and 3500mAh with it available in black and purple colours.
More confirmations on Galaxy Z Flip: 6.7inch Dynamic AMOLED Displya, 12MP Main Camera (not 108MP, obviously). 10MP Front Camera and 256GB Storage as told earlier. One UI 2.1, 3300mAH or 3500mAH Battery (some confusion regarding that). Black and Purple colours. https://t.co/U4GA46Qj1r

The 2020 Galaxy S20 and Z Flip lineup will be announced on February 11 so all will be revealed then — if not before by leakers. Has any of the above pricing turned you off any intended purchases or is it pretty much as you expected? What about the Galaxy Z Flip? Will you be forking out somewhere between two and three thousand to try out a foldable phone?
