Galaxy S6 to go on sale in Russia starting April 16th
When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge earlier this month at its Mobile World Congress 2015 event the company confirmed that both devices will be released in 20 countries on April 10th. Once the initial launch markets receive the devices Samsung will expand sales of its latest flagships to other countries. Russia is not among the 20 countries but the country’s residents won’t have to wait for too long in order to pick up the new devices. Samsung is going to release the Galaxy S6 in Russia on April 16th.
The base model of the flagship will cost 49,990 rubles. At prevailing exchange rates this works out to be over $820. That’s more than what customers are going to pay in some other markets. Currency fluctuation is a major reason behind this high price tag. Hi-Tech.Mail hears that the Galaxy S6 sold in Russia will have dual-SIM support with 64GB storage. The 32GB model will not have dual-SIM support. The Galaxy S6 edge will also not have dual-SIM support and will be available with 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage options.
