Samsung Expected to Drop S6, S6 Edge Prices Soon
The Samsung S6 arrived in India on the 10th of April 2014, it was touted as being the only Samsung smartphone that could perhaps finally compete with the other high-end smartphones such as the iPhone 6.
It’s specifications included a metal body casing, a 5.1 inches display with1440 x 2560 pixels resolution, a16 MP, 2988 x 5312 pixels, optical image stabilization, autofocus, LED flash camera, an internal memory of 32/64/128 GB with a 3 GB RAM, a non-removable Li-Ion 2550 mAh battery and run by Quad-core 1.5 GHz with the Android OS, v5.0.2 (Lollipop), upgradable to v5.1.1 (Lollipop). Despite this Samsung reported a fall in sales in the second quarter with the mobile division down by 8.9 percent and the mobile in particular, dropping 7.3 percent.
Their solution is to bring in certain adjustments pertaining to the price of the device, although these adjustments have not been described by the company, an insider says that one can expect a price cut on the Samsung S6. The original launch price of the device quoted as Rs. 61,900 for the 128GB variant.
Samsung seems to have a history of price cuts post the launch, due to low sales or otherwise. Samsung which was once the wold’s largest smartphone selling company is now lagging behind in sales due to its customer base shifting towards other competitors such as Apple, and now Chinese companies such as Xiaomi and Huawei.
Do you think these price cuts are unfair to users to have already bought the phone at its quoted launch price? Perhaps the price cuts will increase Samsung sales or people might wait for prices to drop again.
