Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge to get permanent price cut from Samsung
Samsung, concerned about future smartphone sales, says it is planning to make a permanent price cut on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. The news comes two weeks before the company is expected to unveil the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ at its next Unpacked event in New York City.

Along with its second quarter earnings report, which was released Thursday morning Korea time, Samsung stated that it would cut the price of the two phones in order to "maintain" its momentum. Despite the announcement, the amount of the price cut was not revealed. Nor did the manufacturer announce when it would implement the new pricing strategy.

After the Samsung Galaxy S5 launched last year, Samsung was criticized for sticking with a plastic build for the phone. After tepid sales of the device (despite its IP 67 certification), Samsung said it would rebuild the Samsung Galaxy S6 from scratch using a metal build. While Samsung took a step forward with the design of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, some might have been upset with some of the other changes made by Sammy such as sealing the battery cover and removing the microSD slot. Samsung also removed the waterproofing feature.

Today's earnings report also said that Samsung would be releasing new high-end models along with more low and mid-range phones. We can pretty well guess that the new high-end phones will be the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+.
