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.

Normally during september, when several other smartphone release, their price go down. It goes even further down during christmas. My friend bought GS5 on boxing day from Vodafone (Oxford St.) unlocked for £300.

Not sure where you get your pricing from. I have followed the eBay pricing for galaxy s1 - s5 and galaxy note 1 to note 4 so I have a real good idea of the pricing (I check them every day which is sad but true). You always get some dummy sells their phone for cheap. I got my galaxy note 3 brand new for £320 3 months after release and bought my note 4 for £400 in December

In fact there is a note 4 brand new on ebay now that is £400 buy now or best offer so you probably get that for £380. Seem so far fetched now?

It's insane, the 32GB S6 here in Denmark starts at 850$, and the Edge version 1100$ for 32GB, that is much much higher than apple's prices, we used to say NEVER GO FULL APPLE, now they went BEYOND Apple in prices!!!

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.

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.

44. Exempt1 unregistered

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
