Samsung Galaxy S6 prices to start at €699 in Europe, the S6 edge 128 GB might cost €1,049
Earlier today at MWC 2015, Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, but the company isn't ready to start selling the handsets yet. Both new flagship smartphones will be released around the world beginning April 10.

According to Sam Mobile, Samsung officials confirmed the prices of the two handsets for Europe. Reportedly, the cheapest Galaxy S6 (32 GB version) will cost €699. The 64 GB model should 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 up to $1,049 for the Galaxy S6 edge 128 GB. Naturally, these are prices for the unlocked Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. US carriers will most probably offer the two handsets starting at $199 on contract (though we assume that the S6 edge will actually be available starting at $299).

Of course, given the build quality (metal + Gorilla Glass 4) and the high-end features that the S6 and S6 edge are offering, we were expecting them to be expensive. Though maybe not that expensive. What do you think, are the prices listed above too high, or just right?

So that ridiculous pricing model won't be restricted to Apple.

The last year GS5 started at €745...You people complaint everytime even when it's good. I think if one day HTC or LG got a 128Gb modele, the price will be the same, just look at the LG G Flex start price how much it cost

I meant paying 100€ more for a step up in memory which costs the manufacturers very little.

Indeed. Don't come defend Samsung. Samsung isn't your fathers company. It's ridiculous to price it so much higher with every upgrade. They even had an article about it where they bashed Apple for it. Samsung deserves the same treatment.

Prices of Samsungs devices will drop quickly, iPhones are expensive all the time.

And their value is up all the time, you don't lose much when reselling, you loose s**tloads when reselling any android phone. At the end an iphone is a better investment. Since you are talking about pricing.

unless you are the second hand buyer. Mint, hardly used Note 4 goes for 475- 550€ over here. I for one welcome any price drops.

agree, like Note 4, their current price in my country dropped about 150 USD from their first-announced price. and don't even bother to talk about their re-sell value.

It's about the price of the memory increase, not the starting price of the handset.

Given that the specs are the latest in technology and far better than iPhone, the €899 ($1072 in our country) can be somehow justified for the 128gb model. But since I'm not an early adopter, I'd like to see user reviews on April and May before deciding to buy this to see if the new touchwiz can optimize battery life and will not hog the internal storage too much just like what HTC One M9 did which is 21 out of 32gb ouch!

No, they aren't. $650-$850 for the iPhone 6, and $750-$950 for the iPhone 6 Plus. The S6 and S6 Edge are nice, but as it has been proven time and again, Apple owns the premium segment. I think this will hurt Samsung more than it will help.

By the way, the Edge would be the one I would choose, but I'm not sure I want to pay $100 more for just better looks than the normal S6.

I though S6 Edge will be up to $100/€100 more expensive than the regular S6 but €150/$150 is a little bit steep.

If 128GB model will be really that expensive, then f**k this and I'm going for Xperia Z4 basic model(probably 32GB) with microSD card. Sony, here's your chance!

That is bonkers expensive €1050 is $1200. That's just crazy, and it just goes to show why they got rid of the SD card slot.

13. may_czos (Posts: 712; Member since: 22 Nov 2014)


€1050 is the price with EU taxes. Price in the US should be about $1050 (usually it's 1:1). Still quite a lot. But as Apple shows, base version is most popular and base S6 has 32GB, while base iPhone just 16GB. I just thought that Edge will be $50-$100 extra, $150 is a little bit too much.

Any way you look at it, it is just crazy expensive. And $150 is a lot. Your right, 50-100 makes more sense

I am okay with paying $600, for a phone, as I am paying now. But $1000, don't you think that is a bit much, considering its competitors are around $600.

I don't get you people. You want premium quality but refuse to pay the entry fee for it.

a metal body design like that could easily accommodate a side loaded Battery and a micro sd slot. Where do you put your sim card, huh? impossible I guess?

These prices are simply outrageous! The devices are around 1/4 of the sale price in terms of actual cost to produce, with the lousy wages included, and then they rip profits like this. There's no valid argument to have any phone above €450/500. And 32Gb of mem doesn't cost €100.

128GB SanDisk microSD = £55.

And people are satisfied with the lack of microSD support? So they can fleece you for increased capacity?

even if i have to pay $2000, i would do it in a heart beat. My brother bought a 64gb iphone 6plus for $1100 and what does it come with besides a large screen and ios? You guys need to go back and review the hardware this sexy beast is packing. Htc and Iphones look premium but this s6 edge is insanely sophisticated!!!!!

f**k YOU SAMSUNG, You have always provided awesome features, but you disappoint the customers with No Micro SD Card, at lease removable battery is adjustable, coz I am myself living with Sony Z1. You are following Apple on how to make money by fooling Customers, this is totally un acceptable. s**t 1049 Euros??, DAMN YOU SAMSUNG.

That price is kind of expected anyway since it has more premium materials and better hardware.

Apple's price is identical and if you think Samsung is overpriced then you're brainwashed.

That's the price they wanted for S5 last year so there's nothing new. Good thing is that Samsung's devices are getting cheaper over time so in a few months S6 will be much more accessible.
