What about the Galaxy S22 series? Rumor has it that the vanilla Galaxy S22 will start at $800 in the US, the same price as the Galaxy S21 this year (in Europe it cost €850). The US price of the S21 FE will presumably also match that of its predecessor, $700, so the small $100 price difference between the FE and the new flagship model will stay in place.

According to Korean media, Samsung is planning to ship 14 million Galaxy S22 units, alongside 8 million S22+ and 11 million S22 Ultra phones. So, getting the price of the vanilla model right is important, since it is expected to be the most popular option.
Besides costing less, the Galaxy S21 FE is expected to arrive first – in early January – while the launch of the S22 series may have to wait until February.
