To be fair, there's a pretty big range of prices within the whole Galaxy S10 line, which will be available starting from March 7th. The cheapest model is the S10e, which starts at $749 for a phone with a 5.8-inch screen and 128GB of storage. The regular S10 starts at $899 for the same 128GB of storage and a 6.1-inch screen. The S10+ starts at $999 for a 6.4-inch screen and the minimum of 128GB storage.
The $1,599 version of the Galaxy S10+ increases the storage to 1TB; nearly eight times as much space as the base model for an extra $600. Meanwhile, Samsung says that its upcoming folding Galaxy Fold smartphone will retail for $1,980.

To compare, Apple's most expensive smartphone, the iPhone Xs Max, costs $1,449 and comes with 512GB storage, as well as a slightly larger screen at 6.5-inches. The base model of iPhone Xs Max goes down to 64GB of storage but still costs $1,099.
Samsung and Apple and other smartphone makers seem pretty set on ratcheting up prices with each year's new devices. On the consumer side, excitement continues to bubble around newly announced phones, but people are waiting longer to adopt new devices.
