New Samsung, HTC phones coming April 10 in US.

Advance orders for the new HTC One begin Friday, and those customers might receive their phones before April 10. DALLAS, March 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – Starting on March 27, you can pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S® 6 and Galaxy S® 6 edge from AT&T1 on and AT&T retail locations in Black Sapphire, White Pearl or Gold Platinum and select from 32GB, 64GB or 128GB2 storage options.Samsung Electronics Co expects its total sales of smartphones, smart devices and tablets to outpace peers in this market next quarter in Taiwan, driven by its new flagship smartphone models, an executive of the company’s Taiwan branch said yesterday. As you would expect, building from such a solid base, the One M8 also received a good reaction, cementing HTC’s place as a leading player in the highly competitive smartphone market.

A recent survey, released by ecoATM, asked 1,050 smartphone owners (including 637 iPhone owners) what it would take for them to upgrade or make a switch from the iPhone® to a Samsung. So when the company revealed the One M9, another upgraded version of the award winning handset at Mobile World Congress earlier this month, it provoked some raised eyebrows, and high expectations. Last month, Apple Inc’s smartphone shipments topped the local market, followed by HTC Corp (宏達電) and Samsung Electronics, Chinese-language Apple Daily reported, citing industry sources. And you’ll have to be quick… The headline news is both models will be made available for pre-order starting tomorrow (March 27) on AT&T , Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S.

Price may be the biggest factor for iPhone owners, with 42 percent reporting they would consider upgrading to the new Samsung phones if they offered a low (or free) cost to upgrade. Samsung’s two new products will officially hit the Taiwan market on April 10, with the S6 32GB model priced at NT$22,900 (US$729.18) and the 64 GB model costing NT$25,900. The Galaxy S 6 edge delivers Samsung’s first dual-edge smartphone – a uniquely designed dual curve screen that cascades the left and right sides of the smartphone.

Brand loyalty plays an important role. 19 percent of iPhone owners said they exclusively own Apple products, while 25 percent said they won’t switch because their friends and family use iPhones. There will be no delay in product deliveries,” Tu said, adding that he hopes the supply of the S6 Edge will be more than 50 percent of the total S6 and S6 Edge sales after hitting the Taiwanese market next month.

However, camera purists seem disappointed that HTC, which has a reputation for innovative developments in camera technology, has changed direction back towards what its competitors have been doing for some time. That said if you are a Samsung fan who laments the new phones’ loss of water resistance, removable batteries and upgradeable storage then you might do well to hold fire. To view the original version on PR Newswire, visit: Under the bonnet, the M9 is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core chipset backed up by 3GB of RAM, which all makes the Android Lollipop operating system, combined with HTC’s Sense skin, zip along reasonably well, with just a little lag at time.

The downside is the Galaxy S6 Active is expected to be thicker at 8.8mm, but that is just 2mm more than the standard Galaxy S6 and a penalty I expect many would be willing to pay.

When it comes to storage, HTC has gone with a fixed 32GB ROM in the M9, which can be extended by another 2TB via the microSD, which is impressive for those who store their life’s work on their phones. Aside from all that, there are some new features around the interface in Sense 7 and BlinkFeed, the addition of the Peel Smart Remote app for controlling your TV viewing and some other minor tweaks and changes.
