Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ price and release date


With the just-unveiled Galaxy S6 edge+, Samsung is pandering to the ever-growing market niche where 5" displays are simply not enough. Those of us who liked the innovative dual-edge screen of the Galaxy S6 edge, but are reluctant to use anything less than 5.5 inches, can now have everything they like about the S6 edge with a bigger screen in a very slim form factor. 

The flexible 5.7" Super AMOLED display introduces two edges on the side for quicker access to the owner's favorite apps and contacts from any screen. The so-called "Apps edge" lets users access their most used applications just by swiping it, while the "People edge" intros a similarly easy access to voice calls or texts to their top contacts from anywhere in the interface. How much for that beauty of nature?

The Galaxy S6 edge+ will be available in the US come August 21st in Black Sapphire and Gold Platinum from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon Wireless, as well as Best Buy, Amazon.com, Costco, Sam’s Club, Target, and select Walmart stores, and you can preview the handset in flesh and blood in carrier and other shops as soon as August 14th in places like Best Buy. 

The carrier pricing in the US will start at $299.99 on a two-year contract for the 32 GB version, whereas the full retail tag is a tad north or south of $800, depending on the carrier. In Europe, the Edge+ will come for preorder later in August, likely starting at EUR 800, with release date some time in September. Here are the dual-edge phablet's prices at the different US carriers:
