Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge price and release date
Samsung just outed its highly-anticipated Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge flagships, and for the first time we are witnessing two of those announced at once, thanks to the curved flexible display of the Edge variant. The handsets are stuffed to the gills with the most pixel-dense displays ever put on a mobile, powerful 64-bit chipsets and great camera modules, all stuffed in premium unibody chassis.

When will you be able to put your grubby mitts on those two beauties. Well, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will be available globally starting from April 10, 2015 with 32/64/128GB storage options. Samsung is still mum on the pricing, but we'd wager to guess something in the realm of $650 without a contract for the S6, and $200 on contract, while the S6 edge will probably run you a Benjamin, or even $150, more. 

In fact, Samsung Netherlands put the handsets up for preorder, and thus confirmed the pricing for the two handsets, at least in Europe. The Galaxy S6 will start you off at €699 for the basic 32 GB version, which is in line with each and every flagship preorder on the Old Continent so far. The 64 GB model would be sold for €799, while the 128 GB variant will be priced at €899. Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S6 edge will be more expensive: €849 (32 GB), €949 (64 GB), and €1,049 (128 GB). 

We should expect prices to be similar in the US, thus starting at $699 for the Galaxy S6 32 GB, and going close to a grand for the Galaxy S6 edge 128 GB. Naturally, these are prices for the unlocked handsets. US carriers will most probably offer the two flagships starting at $199 on contract, though we'd assume that the S6 edge will actually be available starting at $299, which is confirmed by the AT&T site screenshot below.

As per the color versions, you will get them in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz (Galaxy S6 only) and Green Emerald (Galaxy S6 edge only).

At least HTC remained humble. HTC Vive looks promising.

LOL Samsung just never learns huh? Going after Apple when the Chinese are really their competition.

They took out every feature that Samsung sheep tout when comparing the Galaxy line with the iPhone.

You're an idiot if you don't realize Samsung s**t on their customers.

Samsung customers only bought Samsung because:

1. Removable battery
2. Expandable storage

BOTH are gone.

1: not needed and no other phones got it, plus better desig , you all asked for it and now you got it
2:sd card is now very slow speed it was slow before the upgrade just moved from my sd card to note edge and crap loads of the
Lag as been removed, I can only think the 2.7x speed will. Make this thing lag big time if it was added

According to Videotron Canada
128gb Edge is 1020CAD
which translates to 808.80 USD

and 128GB S6 is 920 CAD
which translates to approxmately 720 USD

which are in my opinion fair prices for 128gb of an extremely fast internal storage
