Pricing in Italy revealed for the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge

Pricing in Italy revealed for the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge
An Italian retailer's online listing of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge gives us an opportunity to get some sort of handle on the new model's pricing. According to the listing, the 32GB version of the device is offered at the equivalent of $965 USD. The 64GB model is priced at the equivalent of $1084 USD. No listing was shown for the 128GB model.

These prices are pretty much in line with the $921 USD (32GB) and $1030 USD (64GB) pricing suggested by a report published last week when the Galaxy S6 edge was unveiled. This report said that the 128GB model will be priced at the equivalent of $1138 USD.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge includes curved glass that comes down over part of each side. Compared to the Galaxy S6, it also has a 50mAh higher capacity battery at 2600mAh and features different dimensions. Both models are expected to launch next month. In the U.S., Verizon will start taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge on April 1st.

Because its more expensive that what you would like to pay doesn't mean its not worth it. Its for people that don't care to add a little something extra for something totally unique. Its like saying Lambos, rolexes and porsches arent worth it. Overpriced but worth it.

Right you are. You can not have all the goodness without sweating a little bit. Free market we have. You can choose iphone, nexus, lg, sony, moto or xiaomy, zte, oneplus, huawei. But never will mighty S6 (for the moment).

Lmao, for all the people saying, "I don't care about microSD support because they offer higher capacity versions", are you happy with this? Enjoy paying €110 for a 32GB increase in storage. I knew the decision to drop support was solely for profit.

Mostly for profit but not solely. Having an SD card in the phone benefits a set of people but not the general public. Eradicating SD card support not only increases the memory speed but also helps the brand image. Imagine people who don't have much technological knowledge having SD card problems (because the bought ones below class 10 and SD cards are also notorious for being corrupted), who will they blame? The brand, Samsung. Fast flash memory gives the user a pretty good experience + less likely to slow the phone down as an SD would.

You full of crap, they using top of the range hd and sd card do not work with it as they are 600% slower, crap even iphone hd is 2.7x slower, samsung is offering cheap price on the upgrade, if you go on speed and what you can do with the hd when it's in the phone as sd card are limited and can not be used for apps in full, they also give you 100+gb of cloud

They're almost always more in Europe. It won't be more than the Note 4 Edge. I'm guessing the 32 will start at $749.

There is a reason why the edge is priced higher than the regular version. It is produced in lower volume than the regular one. Lower volume = higher price. Also, if it's priced very close to the regular version, then most people will buy the 6 edge.

Im constantly praising this new flagship but now I just want to say that Samsung sucks at pricing these handsets.

Wow... what a ridiculous pricing structure. You can get the uber-trendy iPhone 6 Plus 64 GB for $849 USD but Samsung wants you to pay $912 USD for 32GB S6 Edge? The edge is sweet but not worth that premium. Not to mention you can get the similarily equipped HTC ONE M9 at a speculated price of $599 for 32GB. Is Samsung trying to lose market share? Do they want to fall behind Apple? Why not price it the same as Apple's devices and then market the Edge and better hardware as the reason you choose Samsung over Apple, not as the justification to charge a higher price. Terrible decision.
