Samsung Galaxy S21 prices: With the Samsung Galaxy S21 series set to launch next year, a new pricing has come up and we now know how much the new Samsung flagship phones will cost when they come to Africa.
The price of the Galaxy S20 was very expensive when it launched in Nigeria and other Africa countries back in March. Even the Galaxy S20 FE was also quite expensive which has left the question, how much the Galaxy S21 will cost when it come to Nigeria and other Africa countries.
The Galaxy S21 Ultra could be more expensive than the S20 Ultra
Samsung Galaxy S21 prices in Africa
The guys in WinFuture and 91Mobiles obtained a pricing information for the Galaxy S21 series in Europe. Although news from these sources has been reliable in the past, we also suspect that the official prices might vary depending on foreign currency rates and local VAT.
But, below is how much the Samsung Galaxy S21 series could cost in Nigeria:
- Samsung Galaxy S21 — N400,000
- Galaxy S21+ — N492,000
- Galaxy S21 Ultra — N650,000
These prices above are base on the 128GB models. But it seems Samsung will charge an extra N50,000 for the 256GB model. And the 512GB model known as the Galaxy S21 ultra will even be more expensive priced at about N650,000.
Compared with the previous devices, the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 plus are cheaper than the Galaxy S20 with the leak prices. The Galaxy S20 retailed at N470,000 at launch which is about N70,000 more expensive than the new Galaxy S21.
While the Galaxy S20 plus retailed at N515,000 which is N23,000 more expensive than the base model of the incoming Galaxy S21 plus. Well, the difference in price is not that much.
Samsung’s plans for the Galaxy S21 Ultra are perhaps the most disappointing.
But it appears that the Galaxy S21 ultra will be more expensive than the Galaxy S20 ultra. Well, this is not so surprising but the difference might not be that much.
Samsung Galaxy S21 prices in the Kenya
The official US pricing should leak over the coming weeks, but the information about European prices does put into question recent rumors about massive price cuts across the whole Samsung Galaxy S21 lineup.
If the Nigeria prices listed above are accurate and recent Samsung launches are anything to go by, the Galaxy S21 series could be priced as follows in the Kenya:
- Samsung Galaxy S21 — 99,000 KES
- Samsung Galaxy S21+ — 120,000 KES
- Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra — 147,000 KES
These prices are purely estimates, but it’s worth noting that Kenyan models are expected to include 256GB of storage as standard. The cheaper models could receive price cuts of around 10,000 KES, but the Galaxy S21 Ultra could only benefit from a 5,000 KES reduction.
Samsung Galaxy S21 prices in the South Africa
Based on what we’ve seen for Europe, the Galaxy S21 prices in the South Africa should look as follows:
- Samsung Galaxy S21 — 17,000 ZAR
- Samsung Galaxy S21+ — 21,000 ZAR
- Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra — 27,000 ZAR
Again, these prices are purely estimates. In South Africa, as is the case across some other African cou tries, all Galaxy S21 models are expected to ship with 128GB of storage. The option of 256GB should be available for an extra 1,200 ZAR, and 512GB of storage is in the works for the Ultra, which should cost another 2,500 ZAR.
Well, its not the first time flagship phones ar coming to Africa at extra cost. Hopefully, the price difference won’t be as the one we saw with the iPhone 12 series when it debut in Nigeria.
