The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge are now available and hitting retail locations globally, and here in the U.S. all four major carriers will be carrying both devices. Sprint is one of those carriers and will be offering the Galaxy S6 in the 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB options, and they'll have the Galaxy S6 Edge on offer in both the 32GB, and 64GB options. The Galaxy S6 will be available in either the black sapphire or white pearl colors in any storage size model, while the Galaxy S6 Edge will come in black sapphire, white pearl, or gold platinum.
If you're planning on picking up one of the devices from Sprint's retail stores or online at their website, the prices are a little different from Sprint than they are from the other carriers. Sprint will be offering both phones via their leasing program of 24 monthly payments alongside the actual plan cost, meaning well-qualified buyers can pick up the Galaxy S6 starting with the 32GB for $0 down and $20 a month on top of the Sprint Unlimited Plus Plan, which altogether will cost customers $80 a month. Customers can choose to upgrade to the 64GB Galaxy S6 or the 128GB Galaxy S6 for an extra $5 or $10 a month respectively, making the total costs $85 a month or $90 a month respectively, which includes the prices of the plans as well as the monthly lease payments for the devices.
If customers go with the Galaxy S6 Edge, the 32GB starts at $0 down for well-qualified buyers and $25 a month on top of the Sprint Unlimited Plus Plan, totaling $85 a month. Jumping up to the 64GB Galaxy S6 Edge will cost customers an extra $5 with the Unlimited Plus Plan, totaling $90 a month. You can also opt to buy the devices with a two-year service plan. The 32GB Galaxy S6 will cost $199 with the contract, the 64GB jumps up to $299, and the 128GB jumps up to $399. The Galaxy S6 Edge on a two-year will be $299 for the 32GB, or $399 for the 64GB. The Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge both come equipped with a 5.1-inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED display, Samsung's Exynos octa-core CPU, 3GB of RAM, Android 5.0 Lollipop, and a 16MP rear-facing camera with a 5MP front facing camera for video chat. As far as the battery goes, the Galaxy S6 sports a 2,550mAh battery while the Galaxy S6 Edge has a 2,600mAh battery on board. If you've been waiting for the official launch to grab either device, the day is finally here.
