The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge were officially announced at Samsung’s UNPACKED event at MWC today. As always, while the company spoke a lot about the devices’ features, it left out information on their pricing. We’ve heard rumors of the prices for the two handsets in the past, and now we have the official price tags right from Samsung officials here at MWC.
The Galaxy S6 will be priced at €699 for the 32GB variant, €799 for the 64GB version, and €899 for the top-end 128GB model. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S6 Edge will cost €150 more than the standard Galaxy S6 for the 32, 64 and 128GB models – €849, €949, and €1049. Those are steep price tags for sure, but given the revolution these two devices bring to Samsung’s smartphone lineup and the hardware that’s on offer (especially on the S6 Edge), we can’t say we are too surprised that buying them won’t be an affordable affair.
It remains to be seen how the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will be priced in the US and other parts of the world, though we are sure the details will crop up in the days leading up to the April 10 global launch of the two handsets.
