While Samsung didn’t offer any sort of information regarding the carrier availability for the Galaxy Note II during its conference yesterday. We have good news though, a sign that was spotted on the show floor of IFA 2012 could possibly be giving us some really good insight as to how much we’ll be spending to get this new handset. According to the placard, when Samsung’s Galaxy Note II will hits the German market in the coming months, it’s going to be priced at a whopping 639 euros on Vodafone, which equals to around $803 here in the United States. You should note that this is the unsubsidized price, which means that consumers isn’t going to be locked into a two year contract with a carrier. If you’re looking for a comparison, AT&T’s original Galaxy Note costs a bit less than what the Note II costs sitting at $549 off-contract. $803 is extremely expensive, so lets just hope that Samsung will be able to work something out with the America carriers to hopefully rub off a few dollars before the device hits the North American market. I think if they were to lower the price, people would be more likely to purchase it as is common.
That said, we’re expected to see the Samsung Galaxy Note II in the North American markets “later in 2012.” It’ll be coming to European markets very soon, which means that we should see the Galaxy Note II coming to America shortly after that.
Do you guys think that $803 is way too much to spend on a device like this or do you think that the Galaxy Note II is sitting at a reasonable price? Obviously it’s supposed to be better than the original Galaxy Note, but $803 just seems like way too much. That said, let us know your thoughts about the handset in the comments below!
