Report : Samsung’s Forthcoming Galaxy S6 Likely To Get An Outrageous Price Tag
Samsung’s upcoming flagship is creating quite a buzz. With only a few days left before its official announcement in Barcelona, a new report suggests that Samsung is launching both the curved and the normal Galaxy S6 at a rather outrageous price point. Moreover, carriers are also reportedly having a hard time getting enough stock of the curved Galaxy S6, suggesting that Samsung might be having manufacturing issues with its curved display.
Much has already been revealed about Samsung’s forthcoming flagship, with the Korean manufacturer expected to announce the Galaxy S6 at the Mobile World Congress next week. The new report also confirms there will be two versions of the Galaxy S6 – a normal version and a curved version sporting curved edges on either sides of the device.
In both cases, pricing is quite exorbitant, apparently higher than the iPhone. For the non curved display – European pricing is €749 ($849), €849 ($963), and €949 ($1,076) for the 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB models respectively. While for its curved variant, the source says one can add €100 to each of the above figures.
Meanwhile, Indian pricing will be a lot more complex than simply converting Euros to Rupees, thanks to our rigid tax structure. But even without considering external variables that would affect the overall pricing, both the upcoming flagship variants are priced way above the launch price of the Galaxy S5. This could be a cause for concern unless the hardware is truly spectacular.
Expect the Samsung Galaxy S6 to be unveiled at an unpacked event in Barcelona on Sunday. We’ll be there to bring you live updates, stay tuned for more.
