A few weeks ago, when Samsung announced the Galaxy S III, it didn’t say how much the smartphone would cost. Of course, various retailers – including British ones – have already unveiled their own prices. But there wasn’t any official word from Samsung on the matter. Not until now, when the South Korean company presented the Galaxy S III in Taiwan.
The new handset will be available in Taiwan starting June 1, and the prices of both the 16GB, and 32GB version have been announced: 20,900 TWD ($708), and 22,900 TWD ($775), respectively. That’s less than what the aforementioned British retailers are currently asking for the S III 16GB, namely £500 (about $800).
All major Taiwanese mobile carriers will offer the Galaxy S III to their customers. As previously reported, the handset will become available in select European markets on May 29, and in the US starting June (probably on all major carriers, too).
