The source told TechRadar “You can expect the S9 to cost £100 more than the Galaxy S8 when it was released last year.” He went on to explain that it’s almost certainly because the public is prepared to cough up the money.
Samsung is pushing the S9 as a camera upgrade in its pre-release invites to members of the press. Over at VentureBeat the rock-solid and ever-reliable Evan Blass says that the camera may feature a lens that can switch from f/1.5 to f/2.4 with a mechanical adjustment. Wide-open apertures give better performance in low light (that’s the f/1.5 bit) and a shallower depth of field. It’s not clear what the f/2.4 setting would add, although it might be that this would offer sharper pictures in normal lighting conditions.
All of that said, it doesn’t matter what S9 does or does not offer regarding features, the price jump is significant and will make some people question the value of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. By the time Samsung announces its upcoming flagship Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus on Feb 25th it is expected that Galaxy Note 8’s price will be dropped even further by than.

The Galaxy S8 will be produced at lower costs, and it is predicted to be an expensive phone at launch.
The launch price of iPhone X was quite higher if we see it regarding value over money. Later on, several phones were launched at high prices, and dozens of peoples argued about it, but it seems to be that we are getting used to it.
