Well guys, April 1st has come about and, as promised, pre-orders for the shiny new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge have been opened on Verizon's website. No, this one is not a Fools joke, so let's take this chance to have a first look at the pricing!
The 32 GB version of the standard Galaxy S6 runs at the "regular flagship" price of $599 off-contract, $199 on a two-year contract, or $24.99 monthly with Verizon EDGE. The same storage version of the curvy Galaxy S6 edge will cost a hundred more – $699 off-contract, $299 on a two-year contract, or $29.16 per month with Verizon EDGE. Each tier of storage upwards basically pumps another $100 into the price-tag – you can check out all the prices in the table below.
Currently, Verizon only offers the two handsets in three colors – black, white, and gold. This may be concerning to those of you who were planning on getting the S6 edge in its exclusive Green Emerald, or the regular S6 in its Blue Topaz variant. There is no word on whether these finishes will be limited editions and it seems that they very well may be, which is a bummer.
Are you not fully up to speed with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge? Well, Sammy's newest flagships boast a metal and glass construction that aims to silence all the "premium" jabs that the older S models were victim to. Additionally, it's powered by an impressive 14 nm octa-core Exynos 7420 and its flash storage employs a new UFS 2.0 tech, which, reportedly, makes it 2.7 faster than any other current phone's eMMC 5.0-powered memory. On the software side, the new S6 models will rock a simplified and thinned-out TouchWiz, which aims to provide a less cluttered user experience.
