Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge: Australian pricing and availability

Fourth Samsung Galaxy S6 Model Leaks.

Samsung’s ly anticipated Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge premium smartphones will go on sale locally from April 10, but you’ll basically pay four-figure amounts to own one unless you buy from a parallel importer.The phones have already made a splash due to their flashy designs, moving away from Samsung’s typical plastic finish to a new look featuring an matte aluminium alloy frame and Gorilla Glass 4 on the front and back. Samsung has taken its design aspirations one step further though with the Galaxy S6 edge, which packs a unique curved display on each side of the device.

The Korean tech giant also said it has cut down on its Android add-on software by 40 per cent – likely to be welcome news for those fed up with ‘bloatware’ slowing down their devices. This functionality bumps the price in Russia to 52,990 RUB (approximately $915) for a 64GB version versus 49,990 RUB ($860) for the standard Galaxy S6. The screen is the same size — 5.1 inches — as the Galaxy S5, but comes with Quad-HD resolution (4x high definition), making it easily one of the best, if not the best screen on a mobile device today. The front-facing camera is 5-megapixels (to facilitate great selfies), while a heart rate monitor is built into the flash unit, like it was in the S5.

Samsung’s compensation is to offer fast charging with a claim of around four hours of usage from 10 minutes of charging, using the especially provided plug. Samsung is also up against the newly minted HTC One M9, which went on sale in Australia last week for $1099, along with a spate of cheap Chinese brands that offer premium features at cheaper prices. Still that’s probably a good thing linguistically… Gordon Kelly is an experienced freelance technology journalist who has written for Wired, The Next Web, TrustedReviews and the BBC.

Yatango — previously Mobicity — is offering the S6 for $849.95, $949.95 and $1199.95 and the S6 Edge for $999.95, $1099.95 and $1199.95 for 32, 64 and 128GB of storage. There’s fingerprint recognition, a heart-rate monitor sensor on the rear that you activate with your finger, an IR blaster for using the phone as a remote control, provisioning for Samsung payments as well as Google payments, and Samsung’s new Milk music streaming service.
