According to a new report, the Samsung Galaxy S6 release date is just around the corner in the United States. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S6 – alongside the Galaxy S6 Edge – at MWC in Barcelona, almost two weeks ago, and suggested that the phone(s) would be headed to users somewhere next month. Read on for more information on this development.
The Galaxy S6 is no doubt one of the hottest device in the Galaxy S lineup from Samsung; the Galaxy S6 Edge in particular, with its dual-sided curved display. According to the Korean electronics giant, the phone has already garnered an impressive 20 million pre-orders which includes both the S6 and the S6 Edge. However, with the S6 Edge being slightly costlier than it’s ‘flatter’ sibling, the former’s share accounts for only 5 million of those orders.
Now, according to the folks over at PhoneArena who were tipped off by an employee who works at one of the four major U.S. carriers, a Samsung sales rep for the Greater Midwest area had told him that the Galaxy S6 will be launched on the 11th of April, which happens to be a Saturday. The phone should launch on all four carriers in the country, according to the source, on the same date, and further suggested that Samsung reps are currently visiting various retail locations across the country with demos of the Galaxy S6. Apparently, the Galaxy S6 Edge will be taking a note out of the Galaxy Note Edge’s launch as well, with the source suggesting that the S6 Edge will be available in limited quantities.
Despite Samsung ditching the user-removable battery and expandable storage option on the new S6 and S6 Edge, the company’s fans seem undeterred in light of the major design and technology improvements drawn into these new headsets. While Samsung is yet to reveal the official prices for both the variants, there have been purported leaks on those details and the figures are definitely on the higher side, but with those prices being for the European region, the U.S. market may see slightly different ones when launched.
What do you think about the Galaxy S6? Let us know if you’ll be eagerly awaiting the 11th of April or not, and if you plan on grabbing the S6 Edge or the standard S6.
