Galaxy S6 edge to come with 64GB of storage as standard in the UK

At the Galaxy Unpacked 2015 event, Samsung announced that the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will come with three storage options: 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB. However, while browsing through Samsung UK’s website, we found out that the S6 edge will come with 64GB of storage as standard instead of 32GB, at least in the UK. This could potentially mean that the S6 edge’s base model will have a much, much higher price tag than the S6’s base model. Maybe Samsung wants people to buy more Galaxy S6s than the edge variant, or this could simply be just a mistake.

Also, both the Galaxy S6 and the S6 edge are given an exclusive colour option, Blue Topaz and Green Emerald, respectively.

Samsung UK S6

Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are Samsung’s first smartphones to feature a completely new design, never seen before from the Korean firm. They both feature a glass body, made from the toughest glass to date, Gorilla Glass 4, and an aluminium frame, which Samsung say’s is 50% stronger than the metal used by other smartphones. Samsung even promised that the device won’t bend.

Currently, Samsung hasn’t announced an official release date or pricing for the UK market. Nevertheless, we would let you folks know as soon as we hear something from the Korean giant, so keep it tuned to SamMobile.

Esperava mais da samsung em designer, quanto a tecnologia tudo bem não fez mas que a obrigação trazer um Hardware poderoso, mas tirar o slot pra cartão sd? bateria não removível e ainda com capacidade melhor? Enquanto tudo queremos é autonomia, tudo bem que o processador é mais eficaz, cagada!!!!!

That’s probably true! Market wise, sammy wants to sell the S6 edge in a more higher price. Simple as cake! Peace!

Personally I’m not too fussed, since I’d get tons of OneDrive storage with the device! Boom!

I think that this is a mistake. I was on the Samsung UK website yesterday and the 32GB option was available on BOTH the S6 and the S6 Edge. Although, having the 32GB option could have been the mistake yesterday. We’ll find out soon enough though. I don’t see why it would start at 64GB… That seems a bit high for a phone where the only difference from the other is a curved screen.

I agree with you… You do NOT need 128GB of storage under normal circumstances… If you need 128GB then you’re doing something wrong clearly. However, it is still always nice to have more storage rather than not enough. As the saying goes, “it’s better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.”

Totally disagree, if you have music, and a few games and are taking pics a lot (for example if you have children) 8GB is useless (as the OS takes a lot of that up too). It depends on your needs but I wouldn’t even go for a phone with less than 32GB if it had no expandable memory. It depends on your needs, not if “you are doing it wrong”. After all a smartphone is supposed to do all these things isn’t it?
