“Are you taking this opportunity to buy the Galaxy S23 ?”
With the launch of a new iPhone imminent, Samsung is on alert. This is because the younger generation’s preference for the iPhone is so high that there are concerns that sales of Samsung’s best smartphone, the Galaxy S23 , released this year, will take a big hit. Accordingly , the publicly announced subsidy for the
‘Galaxy S23’ series was increased by more than 3 times (maximum standard) compared to the previous one, and the actual purchase price was significantly lowered. With this increase in public subsidy, the Galaxy S23 512GB model, which costs close to 1.3 million won, can be purchased for around 700,000 won. The public subsidy is a system that provides discounts on smartphone prices. Telecommunications companies and manufacturers share a certain percentage, lowering the cost of smartphone purchases for customers.
According to the industry on the 2nd, SK Telecom and LG U+ increased the publicly announced subsidy for the Galaxy S23 series 512GB model by 2-3 times from 메이저놀이터84,000 to 230,000 won to 280,000 to 500,000 won depending on the plan in September . SK Telecom raised its price from 131,000 to 170,000 won to 287,000 to 500,000 won, and LG U+ raised its price from 84,000 to 230,000 won to 280,000 to 500,000 won.
With this increase in public subsidy, the Galaxy S23 512GB (1,276,000 won) model can now be purchased for around 700,000 won. If you receive the maximum publicly announced subsidy of 500,000 won (using the 120,000 won range plan) from SK Telecom, the actual purchase price will be 776,000 won. If an additional subsidy of 75,000 won (15% of the publicly announced subsidy) is added, the price of the device drops to 701,000 won.
The Galaxy S23 series is Samsung’s best smartphone, recording record-breaking success, selling 1.09 million units in pre-orders alone upon its launch in February. This product received rave reviews for its unprecedented 100x zoom camera function.
Above all, this increase in public subsidy is to keep in check the iPhone 15, which will be released on the 12th. The price of the iPhone 15 has increased significantly, so the strategy is to compete with price competitiveness by lowering the actual purchase price.
Meanwhile, the price of the new iPhone ‘iPhone 15’, which will be released this month, is expected to increase significantly, up to 200,000 won for each model.
According to Apple expert sources, the price of Apple’s ‘iPhone 15’ Pro is expected to be at least $1,099 (about 1.46 million won), which is about $100 (about 130,000 won) more expensive than its predecessor (iPhone 14 Pro).
In Korea, the ‘iPhone 15 Pro’ is expected to cost at least about 1.68 to 1.81 million won, and the ‘iPhone 15 Pro Max’ is expected to be priced at 1.88 to 2.01 million won. The previous model, ‘iPhone 14 Pro’, is sold from 1.55 million won, and the Pro Max is sold from 1.75 million won.
