Samsung Galaxy S6 and S Edge prices could start at €749 in Europe, 128 GB variants expected for both handsets

Earlier today, Samsung started sending out invitations to its Galaxy Unpacked 2015 event that will take place on March 1 at MWC 2015. Although it doesn't mention what handsets it's going to announce then, the South Korean giant will almost surely unveil the Galaxy S6, as well as the Galaxy S Edge at the event. The curvy line that can be seen on the invite certainly suggests that an S Edge is hidden there.

While we're waiting for Samsung to reveal all there is to know about its newest handsets, alleged European pricing details for both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have been posted by AndroidPit. According to "a trusted source close to the matter", the Galaxy S6 will have three storage options - 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB - priced as follows: €749, €849, and €949. The Galaxy S Edge will have similar storage options, each costing an extra €100: €849, €949, and €1,049. Obviously, these are the expected prices for unlocked units.

At launch, last year's Galaxy S5 had a starting price of €729 in some European markets, so these alleged Galaxy S6 prices aren't that far-fetched. As for the Galaxy S Edge, we're expecting it to be quite expensive anyway (seeing how the Galaxy Note Edge is also more expensive than the Galaxy Note 4).

Sure enough, for now there's no way to confirm these prices. But we won't be surprised if they turn out to be accurate.

Many people talk about it, check out the link above.

Don't you get the fact tha many think everything but touchwiz and lag on the note 4 is awesome? But at the end of the day, there is no excuse for a phone with those specs being outperformed by a year old nexus 5.

So, I have a question for you - does nexus lag? (yes/no)

However, all phones lag in some instances. But my nexus 5 has shown the least lag, even over the iPhone 6. The note 4 has awful lag at times, that can last over a couple seconds.

I was so disappointed in the note 4. And from what I gather on forums online, people say that the note 3 lags less.

I have a Note 4, do u? It doesn't lag. When you press the multi-tasking button, there is some delay, but it doesn't always happen. But so what. No other device does what the Note does. At least I get more for less.

Its easy for an OS to be smooth when it doesn't offer full muti-tasking, split csreen app capability, no digitized stylus, lame cameras, lame battry sucking diaplys.

The only bad thing you retards can say about Samsung is some delay in animations of apps. Yet the iPhone has at least 50 things with it including the fact I shatters on impact with any hard surface and bends in your pocket.

I'd day those are far worse than so called lag which many don't experience often if at all.

saw this review. And? It doesn't mean we all experience this, because I don't. Like I said, there is some delay when you press the multi-tasking button, but so what?

When you click something on your PC, the CPU is 100x's more powerful and yet you don't get instant results. Is that lag?

The more a computer does the more you may have some delays in some things. Again So?!

What does iOS for example bring to the table? 2012 hardware? An OS that doesn't do anything? Sure its smmoth. Yep smkoth as butter because it doesn't do crap.

It has a crappy camera on front and back, crappy battery sucking display with terribly inaccurate colors, the OS is boring, you cant do normal PC-like thinshg with it.

Bigger I size yet added no feaures to take advantage. Just, look I can be big too.

Until you trolling Samsung hating scumbag actually can have a real argumenet, your point is moot.

I don't even know why people waste time even responding to anyone who says something like lag. Anyone who says Samsung phones lag are simply ignorant. So what if some do. For a computer to lag, that mean it actually busy doing something.

Android doesn't run directly from the hardware, it is a VM. Last time I checked, VM's by default don't run as fast as code that directly has access to hardware.

However, normal computers have delays in what happens next. If you device instantly responds to a request, that means it isn't doing anything. It's like real life. If you ask someone to come to you and they don't right away, do you complain like a little girl, OMG you are lagging? No. So why talk about it now.

I have a better thing you can cry about. Why don't cry about those crappy iPhones you own where Apple jackd up the price over the 5S and added nothing but size. They add 2 year old screens which are cheaper today to produce then they were 2 years ago. he iPhone still cost Apple $220 to make yet they raised the cost? Why don't you ask them why?

Instead of you bashing Android an Galaxy users over petty girls crap, why don't you deal with the 50 issues the iPhone has instead.

I have a Note 4, what I saw on the video I have never experienced except for one thing which I spoke of. It doesn't happen everytime and yes it sucks when it does. But so what. I don't get mad. My PC has a quadcore i7 with 16GB of RAM and the fastest SSD money can buy, which I have a server class SSD and yet it still doesn't instantly show my requests. It isn't suppose too. After all it is busy doing other thngs.

Do you even know how CPU' work? Only so many commands can be xecuted per clock cycle. If that cache is full with oyther tasks, when you make a request, the CPU can respond to it until it has completed one of the present tasks in the present cycle.

If you device nearly instantly shows your request, it is because the CPU isn't doing nothing. That si simply fact. However, how anyone can speak of a phone they have never own or used is amazing.

This video shows lag that last much longer than .005 sec. Keep in mind, that I love Samsung products. But there is no denying it. The note 4 has performance issues. I really wonder if some of you guys are paid trolls.

We'll be seeing reports about how the 8 months old iPhone6 outsold the brand new S6 by a huge margine, just like the 5s did last year. LOL.

So what? Yep the next iPhone will liley outsell the S6. So what? McDonald's sell more hamburgers than all hambuger businesses combined. Does that mean they sell the best hamburgers?

You fans act like sells figures are a 100% tell all end all sorry for a product.

I can name 50 products released in the past 10 years that sold in high numbers and were the crappiest products ever made. The iPhone for me tops that list for a lot of reason.

It's a shame the Note 4 is the fastest phone out there besides the Nexus 6. :(

Um....it is not.

I actually had the note 4 before returning it. It didn't touch my nexus 5. Many people online say the same.

Touchwiz is very laggy

Many people say the complete opposite. You're just too afraid to admit the Note 4 is better than the phone you're using now.

It's hard to know how laggy a phone is if you don't have another device to compare it to. I didn't know how laggy and jittery the S3 was until I got the Nexus 4. The difference was like night and day. My stepmother has the S5 and she didn't realize how laggy it was until she saw me using the Nexus 5. I installed Nova Launcher on her phone and that got rid of some of the lag.

Note 4 is far fron laggy. I'm a former owner of the Nexus 5 and honestly it would look like it was quicker but it actually wasn't. It's just that Lollipop has smoother transitions through the whole UI. But individual app performance was a tie between both while Note 4 had many other advantages including better battery, extra screen state and the S pen which gave it the edge over the Nexus. Personally I don't regret my choice

Problem #1, trying to compare a device that uses a barebones OS, with one that uses a feature ridden S.

Hey look, your car isn't as fast as my car, so that means your car must be a POS. Right?

My Note 4 has no lag issues at all? Only the first 15 seconds or so after a reboot. I've never experienced any performance lag at all so far. Much faster than my Note 3 that was already fast.

I call bulls**t on this is no way samsung would sell their entry level new phone for almost 900 US dollarsthere would be no sales and even with the increased amount the few sales they do get would not help them vs if they left it at 650 or 7

I think you people are sick. If you don't like touchwiz. Just buy phone from another brand. Actually you people are called harers. Do u think, Touchwiz really laggy now??? No, it's not laggy. Touchwiz now super fast than others and it's also look very nice.

The so-called lag that you are talking about only exists in Samsung haters trolls' mind. Your argument is quite childish while trying to make a minor, unnecessary fault like a big deal You should praise Samsung for what it brings us today

Many of the lag problems is linked to the 805 being crap, Samsung had to make the 7410 way crap to go down to its crap level for the note4, I.e before you say the nexus 6 is ok, that's because it's just basic lol pop and then It's had loads of problems

Make 32GB standard like the Note 4 and you have yourself the best selling flagship in the Android camp of the year.

Why the hell is 32 GB not standard already... it really should be there no excuse for flagships to cost upwards of 550 USD and to only come with 16 GB of internal memory..(9-12 available)

6. PapaSmurf (Posts: 10457; Member since: 14 May 2012)

It's robbery on every OEMs part to only put 16GB, especially if they're adding their own skin on top.

Samsung is the worst. My S4 with 16GB of internal storage only has around 9.6 GB availabel because of the system memory.

even with 16gb of internal, it is still the number one selling Android flagship.
