Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge now available to pre-order in the UK

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge now available to pre-order in the UK
Not long after becoming available to pre-order in mainland Europe, Samsung's Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge can now also be pre-ordered in the UK. However, at the moment pre-orders aren't officially available at Samsung UK, but via a few third-party sellers.

For example, you can get a Galaxy S6 from eBay UK starting at £549.99 (32 GB model), while the Galaxy S6 edge (64 GB) costs £649.99 at the same vendor. Both handsets should be shipped on April 10. MobileFun UK is also taking pre-orders, asking £599 for a Galaxy S6, and £699 for a Galaxy S6 edge.

Of course, if you don't want to buy a Galaxy S6 or S6 edge unlocked, you'll have to wait until mid-April, when most British mobile operators should start offering the two handsets on contract.

In the US, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge should be available to pre-order starting April 1 (at least at Verizon). Prices for the S6 will likely start at $199 on contract, while the S6 edge is expected to cost $299 or more.

Overall, it's said that, until now, Samsung may have already received orders for 20 million Galaxy S6 and S6 edge units from carriers and retailers around the world. One analyst believes that Samsung could sell 46 million S6 units (including both the regular, and the egde model) until the end of 2015.
