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.
