Updated: Estimated pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Motorola RAZR

Update: Slight revision on the pricing as we got the conversions mixed up. We used conversation rates based on Euros when the price is actually in Pounds (Thanks to Ramesh for pointing this out). Based on the right currency, we have a clearer picture of how much the devices would cost when they come to Malaysia. Considering that smartphone prices in UK is generally more expensive than they are here, you can expect that the Motorola RAZR and Galaxy Nexus to be priced fairly close to our RM2,200 estimate.

European online retailer Clove Technologies are now taking pre-orders for both the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Motorola RAZR. What’s interesting about this is that with the pre-orders, Clove have also released the outright pricing for the two devices.

The Motorola RAZR is expected to retail for £379 or about RM1,622 RM1,855, while the The Galaxy Nexus is expected to go on sale for £429 or about RM1,834 RM2,100.

Both these prices are well below our estimates which still stands at around the RM2,200 or below range for the two devices. As the Samsung Galaxy SII and the HTC Sensation XE are selling for RM1,899 and RM1,999 respectively, we don’t think that the RAZR and Galaxy Nexus will match the European pricing when the devices come to Malaysia, but hey, the cheaper the better.

If these two devices do get sold here for below RM2,000, that’s going to be amazing.
