The HTC One M9 isn’t the only flagship smartphone going up for pre-order at midnight. Samsung has announced that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will also be available for pre-order starting March 27th.

Like the HTC One M9, Samsung’s new phones will be available in US stores starting April 10th.

galaxy s6 and edge

Samsung isn’t talking pricing yet, leaving that up to wireless carriers. T-Mobile has already revealed that its prices will begin at $680 for a Galaxy S6 with 32GB… but that’s the price over 24 payments. AT&T will charge $22.84 per month for the phone, which comes to about $550 over 2 years.

Update: Sprint will offer the phone for “free” when you sign up for a 2-year Unlimited contract at $80 per month.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 features a 5.1 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel display, a Samsung Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and Android 5.0.

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge is a more expensive model with similar specs, but has a display which folds over the left and right edges of the phone and features a slightly larger battery.

Early reviews of Samsung’s new phones seem pretty positive, although some folks will be disappointed that neither model has a removable battery or microSD card slot — two features that had been present on most of Samsung’s earlier Galaxy phones.

  1. Thats fun cause I am stuck with Note Edge and I paid $935 for it. Can’t even sale it on Ebay anymore the priced it too low. And Note 4 is not better about $800 retail price when it was new. Anyone care to buy both so I can get the S6?

  2. dont know how Samsung sells their products for such a high price,,,truly amazing.

    1. They are due for a heavy reality check on this one. Sometimes corporations are delusional about the marketplace. Samsung is delusional.

    2. High Price? $649 has been the retail for the galaxy flagship, now that it has 32gb they charge $30 more.
