Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge Philippine Pricing
Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones are coming to the Philippines on April 18, following its global release on April 10.
The Philippines is one of the few markets where the flagship S6 will ship as a dual-SIM phone (1 LTE + 1 GSM nanoSIM), a nod to the unique needs of the Filipino user. The S6 Edge will come in a single-SIM configuration only.
Both phones will be available in 32GB and 64GB variants only, the 128GB model will not be offered in the Philippines.
Off contract, an unlocked Galaxy S6 will retail for Php 35,990 for the 32GB model and Php 41,990 for the 64GB model while the Galaxy S6 Edge will retail for Php 41,990 and Php 47,990 for the 32GB and 64GB models respectively.
The 32GB model will be available in all colors including White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz (S6) and Green Emerald (S6 Edge) while the 64GB model will only be available in Gold Platinum.
The company is also promising local availability of S6 accessories on launch day including cases, flip covers, and the wireless charging pad.
In a briefing with journalists on Thursday, March 19, Samsung Philippines Imaging and Mobile Business Unit Director Digs Dimagiba reiterated the company’s confidence in the success of its new flagship device, “We believe it will outsell all of its predecessors.”
Unveiled earlier this month, Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone is a big departure from Samsung’s tried and tested plastic design. The phone sports glass front and back panels, an aluminum frame, and a new display that’s twice the resolution of HD.
The more expensive S6 Edge features edges that curve onto its side, giving the impression of a display that wraps around the entire phone.
Both phones come with the high-end specs & features including a 16 megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, an octa-core processor, fast wireless charging, and an improved fingerprint scanner.
Users in the Philippines can pre-order directly from Samsung or via their respective telcos.
