The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are coming to Canada this April 10 as Samsung initiates a worldwide launch to maximize sales. The new Galaxy S series will be available on all major carriers as well and many of those carriers are already taking pre-orders. Normally, the carrier will let the person placing the pre-ordering know how much the device will cost them, but Rogers and Fido started taking pre-orders over a week ago with a $40 refundable deposit – no pricing was listed.
Today, Rogers has finally listed its pricing for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge and it is very similar to the other carriers. This year's Samsung Galaxy S6 series has no microSD card slot to increase the internal memory, so Samsung will offer both models in three variants – 32GB, 64GB and 128GB – much like Apple does with the iPhone. Pricing for the Galaxy S6 is $249.99 on a two-year contract and $749.99 no-term for the 32GB model. The 64GB model will cost you $359.99 or $859.99 and the 128GB model will cost you $469.99 or $969.99. Pricing for the Galaxy S6 Edge is, of course, higher with the 32GB model costing you $349.99 on a two-year contract and $849.99 no-term. The 64GB model will bump up the price to $459.99 or $959.99 and the 128GB model will cost you a cool $569.99 or $1,069.99.
Initially, the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge models will come in the standard Black Sapphire and White Pearl on all carriers, but we learned yesterday that the Gold Platinum model would become available shortly after the launch. Now you will have to decide whether to rush on out and pick up a Black or White model or wait a little longer for the Gold! Samsung also hinted around that the exclusive Blue Topaz Galaxy S6 and the Green Emerald Galaxy S6 Edge might also find their way into Canada at some point. Much of the color availability may depend on supplies, demand and the carriers – after all, it would require a commitment on the part of the carriers to stock some expensive inventory.
