Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 edge to get cheaper on August 1
Samsung recently confirmed that it will “adjust” its pricing of the Galaxy S6 series in an effort to boost sales after another disappointing quarter — and now one report claims its new prices will come into affect on August 1. Buyers can expect to see reductions of around $100 across the board.
TechTastic reports that as of Saturday in Europe, the Galaxy S6 will start at €599 instead of €699, and the Galaxy S6 edge will start at €699 instead of €849. If you want 64GB models, you’ll need to pay €699 and €799 for the S6 and S6 edge respectively.
If you convert these prices into U.S. dollars, then it actually seems like Samsung’s are going to get more expensive — but we should remember that these prices include sales taxes for European consumers. It’s likely that in the U.S., Samsung will knock around $100 off each model.
That means you can expect to see the 32GB Galaxy S6 falling to around $499, and the 32GB S6 edge falling to around $599.
These prices are yet to be confirmed by Samsung, so until then, take them with a pinch of salt. But we certainly don’t see these reductions as too improbable.
