MWC has brought us two outstanding flagships in the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6. We’ve had a good early look at them both, but one last unanswered question remains – “how much will they cost?”
Fortunately, likely retail prices of both smartphones have been let slip in a couple of contest terms and conditions. HTC has given the game away through its US contest and T-Mobile has done the same for the Galaxy S6. In the US, companies have to list the approximate retail value of any contest prizes. HTC gives the One M9 a rough price of $599, while the Galaxy S6 will be priced around $699. However, these are by no means official figures.
While the One M9 comes with a fixed 32GB internal storage capacity, Samsung’s Galaxy S6 will be available in 32, 64 and 128 GB options. The listing doesn’t state which version of the Galaxy S6 is being given away, but it probably isn’t one of the larger memory variants. Overall, these prices are pretty much what we would expect, given the hardware on offer.
