Samsung Electronics' new premium smartphone Galaxy Note8 due for release within September is likely to be priced at around 1,090,000 won. According to Samsung Electronics and telecommunications operators on Monday, the price of the Galaxy Note8 64GB model is considered at 1,094,500 won and the 256GB model 1,205,000 won.

With the Note8 expected to be way over 1 million won, how LG Electronics' V30 will be priced is also getting attention. LG Electronics America, at the Twitter prize lottery promotion event, said its approximate retail value was 749.99 dollars. Since the price is a lowered estimate before the official price is out, the device is likely to be priced at between the upper end of 700 dollars to 800 dollars. Industry sources say the price of LG's new smartphone in Korea will be around the upper end of 900,000 won.
