The introduction of new hardware from one of the world’s largest smartphone manufacturers doesn’t just mean new shiny goodness for tech fans who love the latest device. It also means price reductions on older hardware that will directly benefit those consumers who simply don’t feel the need to own the latest and greatest release. As of right now, Samsung has applied further reductions to last year’s Galaxy S6 taking the price down to a very reasonable $450 for off contract unlocked model. Galaxy S6 normally retails for around $500.

It’s been common knowledge for a week or so now that Samsung will introduce the next-generation Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge during a dedicated Unpacked event on February 21st. Samsung had previously reduced the price of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in order to get it off shelves, but now the imminent announcement of its successor means that there are event more savings to be had.

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 is still one of the best Android devices on the market and can certainly compete with the heavy hitters in the industry. The next generation of the Galaxy series of devices may have to compete for dominance against Apple’s iPhone in the smartphone market, but an outlay of $450 for a highly performant Galaxy S6 is a real no brainer for anyone looking to be up there with the best on a reasonable budget.

That particular purchase will ensure that you get a 32GB unlocked Black Sapphire Galaxy S6 SM-G920i handset that’s compatible with GSM networks. There’s an integrated Exynos 7420 processor, 3GB of RAM, the stunning 5.1-inch 2560×1440 display, and of course one of the best 16MP camera in the smartphone world. If you don’t mind parting with $450 in order to own an unlocked smartphone that’s still pretty much at the top of its game and will last for a number of years, then there are definitely worse purchases than the deal on offer at Amazon.
