The new Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are coming to Canada – that is a fact we already know. Several of the carriers are already taking pre-orders and today, Bell and Virgin Mobile joined that group. There is no official release date listed – they probably do not even know – but pre-orders have gone from “coming soon” to live and that means pricing has also been announced. We already know that Samsung has made it official that there will be a worldwide launch on April 10, so presumably that is when we will actually be able to get our hands on one.
Virgin Mobile is the easiest to price as they are only offering the 32GB models of both devices in either Black Sapphire or White Pearl. The Samsung Galaxy S6 will cost you $249.99 on a two-year contract and $729.99 off-contract. The Galaxy S6 Edge will cost you $349.99 on contract and $829.99 retail. These are the 32GB or base models and appear to be the only ones that Virgin Mobile will offer.
The pricing and choices get a little more complicated on Bell – in the Pearl White, you can only pre-order the 32GB or 64GB models and in Black Sapphire, you can choose 32GB, 64GB or 128GB models. The cost of the Galaxy S6 is $249.95/$729.95 for 32GB, $359.95/$839.95 for 64GB and $469.95/$959.95 for the 128GB model. The pricing for the normal Galaxy S6 is slightly under that of an Apple iPhone. The Galaxy S6 Edge will cost you $349.95/$829.95 for 32GB, $459.95/$939.95 for 64GB and $569.95/$1,049.95 for the 128GB model.
The new Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge were redesigned from the ground up with a metal silhouette and ultra-thin bezel. They offer Fast Charging – you can get up to 4 hours of power in only 10 minutes, not to mention they have wireless charging built into the devices, which can take advantage of all wireless charging methods. It offers a quick launch camera – it will be ready to shot a picture in 0.7 second so you will never lose that opportunity for a spontaneous picture. If you pre-order with Bell, you will receive a free Samsung wireless charger, valued at $49.99. The Galaxy S6 Edge adds the world’s first dual curved edge design with extra features and easy to swipe design from the sides of the display.
