Samsung Galaxy S Plus will cost €449 in the Netherlands

Dubbed the “improved version of Samsung’s most successful smartphone ever”, the Samsung Galaxy S Plus was officially unveiled in the Netherlands, just as we heard it would be.

The Netherlands is the second country in which this device was announced, after Russia where it’s already available. When we last talked about the Galaxy S Plus and the fact that it will be sold in the Netherlands, I told you not to use its price in Russia as an idea of how much it will cost elsewhere – and for good reason. Smartphones are generally a lot more expensive in Russia than in the rest of Europe.

And once again that has been confirmed. The Samsung Galaxy S Plus will retail in the Netherlands for €449, as opposed to the (approximately) €540 it goes for in Russia.

Unfortunately, Samsung decided not to announce when exactly the Galaxy S Plus will become available in the Netherlands – not even a hint other than “soon” – which really isn’t saying much. So we’ll have to wait and see, and we’ll let you know when you can finally buy one.

The Samsung Galaxy S Plus is very similar, in looks but not only, to the Samsung Galaxy S, although some aspects have been improved. For example, the Plus has a 1.4 GHz processor, a 1650 mAh battery, and it runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread from day one. And it seems like it’s going to be Samsung’s upper-midrange offering from now on, at least in Europe.
