Samsung Galaxy S24 is all set to launch alongside Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy 24 Ultra on January 17. As the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event nears, more rumours about the phones keep popping up. A new report has now leaked the alleged Korean pricing of the Galaxy S24 lineup. The pricing of the base Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ could remain almost the same as their predecessors. However, the higher versions with 512GB storage might see a price hike.
A rumour from Korea (via Ppomppu) states that the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ with 256GB of storage will have the same price tag as their 2023 counterparts. However, the 512GB variants will cost more. The top-end Galaxy S24 Ultra is said to see a price hike across all configurations.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S24+ is said to cost KRW 1,353,000 (roughly Rs. 86,000) for the lower-end model with 256GB storage, whereas the 512GB version is said to have a price tag of KRW 1,496,000 (roughly Rs. 95,000).
Further, the vanilla Galaxy S24’s base variant with 256GB of onboard storage is said to be priced at KRW 1,155,000 (roughly Rs. 73,000), while the 512GB storage variant could cost KRW 1,298,000 (roughly Rs. 82,000), pricier than the 512GB model of the Galaxy S23.
The 512GB models of both Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ are said to be KRW 22,000 (roughly Rs. 1,300) more expensive than the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+.
Samsung will host its first Galaxy Unpacked event for 2024 on January 17 at 11.30pm IST (1.00pm EST) at the SAP in San Jose, California. The company has started reservations for the Galaxy S24 series in India.
