As we noted earlier this week, Samsung has begun pre-orders of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge in the UK today. It’s available at EE, O2, Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse. So far, Three hasn’t said a word about pre-orders for either of Samsung’s new flagship devices, but we expect that to change pretty soon.
EE is offering a “wireless bundle” with the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge. The bundle adds on a £40 charge for a wireless charger, but gives you a £20 voucher for a Samsung case. They are also offering the Galaxy S6 in both 32GB and 64GB models, with the Galaxy S6 Edge only available in the 64GB model. Prices on EE range from £50 upfront and £43.5 monthly all the way to £10 upfront with £48.5 due monthly.
O2 appears to be offering the same configurations as EE is. The Galaxy S6 in 32GB and 64GB with the Galaxy S6 Edge in 64GB. Their Gold version has been delayed though, that one won’t be expected until about May 1st. While the black and white models should be available on April 10th. Plans from O2 are a bit different ranging from nothing upfront and £48 monthly for the 32GB Galaxy S6. the 64GB version is starts at £10 upfront and £53 per month.
Carphone Warehouse carries the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge for a variety of carriers, including Vodafone, O2, EE and three. They are offering all three configurations. However, Carphone Warehouse states that the 128GB model and the gold model are expected to ship in 4-6 weeks. The other colors and sizes should still ship on April 10th as expected. In addition, Carphone Warehouse is offering a free £40 wireless charger when you pre-order either device from them.
Finally, Vodafone is actually offering the Galaxy S6 in all three model configurations. The 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. Of course you can expect to pay quite a bit for the 128GB model. In fact it’ll be £119 upfront with a £48.5 monthly payment for the 128GB model. The Galaxy S6 32GB on it’s cheapest price plan is £49 upfront with £43.5 due each month. Vodafone should also have all their Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge’s delivered to your doorstep on April 10th.
So that’s how pre-orders and pricing is going for the carriers over in the UK. Hopefully we hear something from Three soon about their offerings for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
