Samsung has revealed the Galaxy S6 will cost £600 for the 32GB version while the S6 Edge will cost £760 for the 64GB version. Pricing for 128GB versions has not yet been revealed.
The Samsung order site does not include pricing information for the 64GB version of the Galaxy S6 although it may well be the same as the S6 Edge at £760.
Those willing to splash out on the device can order them from the Samsung website, although the 64GB version of the Galaxy S6 Edge is already listed as being sold out.
The Galaxy S6 is listed as shipping 10 April, the same day it will be available for sale in stores.
EE, Vodafone, Carphone Warehouse and O2 are all offering the devices on pre-order too, with contract prices ranging from £40-50 dependent on services.
Samsung will be hoping the devices – which it claims are its most advanced to date – sell strongly as it looks to cement its position as the number two smartphone vendor in the market.
The devices feature a wealth of top-end hardware and software components.
These include a “one of a kind” 14nm, 64-bit octa-core processor that combines quad-core 2.1GHz and 1.5GHz parts and a 5.1in Quad HD 2560×1440 577ppi screen that Samsung claims displays 70 percent more pixels than the Galaxy S5.
They also both include wireless charging support and “radically upgraded” 16MP, F-1.9 with Real Time HDR and Optical Image Stabilisation rear cameras.
Samsung claims that the F-1.9 lens lets in 60 percent more light than the Galaxy S5’s lens and will radically improve low light performance.
Both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge come loaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop overlaid with Samsung’s Touchwiz skin. The Touchwiz skin is designed to be cleaner than past versions and comes loaded with a bare minimum of custom applications and widgets.
Key additions include Samsung’s Pay and Knox services. Samsung Pay is a contactless payment service that is set to appear on both devices. Samsung Pay is similar to other payment services, but is based on NFC and MST.
Knox is a security feature designed for IT managers that makes it easier to manage Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge handsets handling company data.
The only major difference between the two phones is that the Galaxy S6 Edge features Super Amoled ‘Edge Screens’, like those seen on the Galaxy Note Edge. The curved screens wrap around the left and right sides of the device.
