Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge launch did not contain any details on pricing options and wasn’t followed by any announcements in this regard, so we were left wondering how much money will cost the smartphones.
The good news is the folks over at SamMobile have learned directly from Samsung officials how much money one would need to purchase the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge beginning next month.
Let’s start with the standard Samsung Galaxy S6, which will be available in three variants: 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. The cheapest of the three will cost €699, while the 64GB will be available for €799 and the 128GB around €899.
As you can see there’s a €100 difference between each of these Galaxy S6 models. Keep in mind though the these are suggested retail prices, so there’s a chance that you will have to pay a little higher for Samsung Galaxy S6 at launch.
The Galaxy S6 Edge will be much more expensive than the standard model
Moving on to Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, due to its 3-sided display, it makes sense to cost a bit more. Previous rumors claimed that Edge might cost up to €150 higher than the Galaxy S6.
Well, it looks like the rumors were confirmed once again. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will also be available in three flavors: 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.
The Galaxy S6 Edge 32GB model will cost no less than €849, while the 64GB variant has been priced at €949. The most expensive of the three will be the 128GB, which is supposed to sell for €1049.
These prices are for Europe, so it’s unclear how Samsung will price the Galaxy S6 in the United States, but the South Korean company might go for parity and release the smartphone for similar prices but in a different currency (USD).
It’s also worth mentioning that Galaxy S6 will be available for much less at carriers, though customers will have to commit to long-term contract and a monthly fee.
