Samsung puts the Galaxy S6 on preorder in Europe, S6 edge priced 20% higher

Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge yesterday, but the company isn't ready to start selling the handsets yet. Both new flagship smartphones will be released around the world beginning April 10.

Just as rumored, though, Samsung Netherlands put the handsets up for preorder today, and thus confirmed the pricing for the two handsets, at least in Europe. The Galaxy S6 will start you off at €699 for the basic 32 GB version, which is in line with each and every flagship preorder on the Old Continent so far. 

The 64 GB model would be sold for €799, while the 128 GB variant will be priced at €899. Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S6 edge will be more expensive: €849 (32 GB), €949 (64 GB), and €1,049 (128 GB). We should expect prices to be similar in the US, thus starting at $600+ for the Galaxy S6 32 GB, and going close to a grand for the Galaxy S6 edge 128 GB. Naturally, these are prices for the unlocked handsets - US carriers will most probably offer the two starting at $199 on contract, with the dual-edged version commanding a $100 premium.

I have already ordered mine at Over here the 128gb Galaxy S6 Edge comes at 1.049 Euros: Exactly the same price as the iPhone 6 128gb when it came out.

technology should be made easily accessible , demanding high price makes less users to get benefit from it. i respect R&D but still there is a margin for affordability!

Extra €150 for two bent edges. Don't get me wrong, it looks goods and distinguishes the device from others in a good way but asking for €150 extra for that, to me, US not worth it but that doesn't mean you shouldn't go for it if it's okay with you - it's just my opinion and I think I'm entitled to one.

The edge is not worth it. Prices for the regular s6 seem right. Ofcourse prices will drop.

A smartphone, as good as he is, not worth this.Unless you are a rich person.

Samsung is really copying iPhone! First they removed the sd card slot, then the removable battery and now the price! No wonder xiaomi, lenovo, huawei and others are growing.

This is top of the range mem never been used in a phone before, they can charge you $300 and you be getting a good deal, on the other hand Apple give you cheap crap and on there 128gb. They gave you real big time cheap crap, good day, also sd cards was removed due to the slow damaged done to the new meme controler if added, it be like adding ddr1 to a ddr4 pc, if you was able to do it, you can not as it make it crap,hm more like putting a lowest clock ram when you added in top clock for others you have ordered just to save some cash, problem is it makes it al Crap slow

yeah you know, Android needs a hardcore specs to run nicely. i'm just curious if it has consistent performance when used for long time. most Android phones degrade with heat.

you guys are idiots, you can get an android phone for as little as $50 and it does everything. this can do.

Pretty funny you call people idiots but that $50 phone can not even take great pictures, support storage above 4GB, no LTE and I know for a fact does not run Lollipop. Sit down and evaluate what you said.

Posts: 613; Member since: May 16, 2013 gsm lte, 4gb memory+ expandable storage. the camera is probably not as good, but i'd be an idiot to pay $800 for a marginally better camera. what advantage does lolipop offer over kitkat other than redesign? anyways, good luck getting yourself into debt for a smartphone

Debt over a smartphone? It's only just under a grand, clam down bru. If the whole tech world went by what you are saying right now, there would be nothing new or amazing. Everyone would just make dreadful phones cuz they are cheap.

But iphones are priced 100eur more for each extra memory. And thats awful. I will never touch that. Every single android sheep few months ago. Lets see what they say about samsung now.

This makes sense though. The spec inside these Smartphones are insane. The new memory alone would cost a fortune inside these, it makes sense with the price jump per 100% increase. Plus, the materials and the way they are made is outstanding. iPhone 6's are just sub par phones which cost an incredible price tag for no reason but the logo on the back....

seriously about the logo on the back? it's the iOS, the App Store, the whole ecosystem, that makes iPhone, iPhone. i don't care about specs if my phone runs as fluid as it can be, i've tried many Androids, but then, none of them get close to iOS fluidity. and the lack of system-wide consistency of UI design really irritates me.

Exactly, you pay loads for the logo on the back.... All of those things are Apple exclusive. Therefore, the logo on the back. Also, I assume you have Apple everything. It makes sense to get an iPhone then, just like if you have Sony everything, or Samsung everything, it all flows together very nicely. BUT. I do manage to connect my G3 to my Mac way easier than the iPhone's in my household. I don't know why, but it's way easier and nicer, just with the bluetooth alone

100€ (or $100 in the US) jumps to the next storage option? Wait a moment. I can remember all the Samsung boys to go over the iPhone's price scheme as it was yesterday. The whole Samsung boys got destroyed by Samsung itself. No micro sd card slot, no changeable battery, $100 for the next storage option, the camera that stands out and many other things. Yes this is Samsungs beast phone of 2015 that destroys every phone - inspired by how successful the iPhone is with their strategy.
