Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge prices to start at wallet-busting £760

Thinking of snapping up Samsung’s latest flagship phone? You might want to give your bank balance another check as the Galaxy S6 Edge price has been set at a wallet-busting £760.

With the curved-screened smartphone to launch in both 64GB and 128GB storage capacities, Samsung has revealed the smaller option will be bestowed with the eye-watering price tag.

At present there is no official pricing for the larger, 128GB, S6 Edge.

This lofty asking price isn’t just steep; it makes the phone one of the most expensive on the market.

The 64GB S6 Edge lines up just £29 cheaper than the 128GB iPhone 6 Plus and a full £61 more expensive than Apple’s own 64GB offering.

Unfortunately, the standard, flat Galaxy S6 isn’t much more affordable, either. The One M9 rival has been handed a not inconsiderable £599.99 asking price for the base, 32GB option.

Again, SIM-free pricing for the larger, 64GB and 128GB options are yet to confirmed.

Both handsets are now available to pre-order ahead of an April 10 in-store release.

If this sizeable chunk of cash is too much for you to stomach, both devices are to be made available on a variety of pay-monthly contracts.

Carphone Warehouse is offering the S6 Edge on a £43.50 per month, 24 month contract after you’ve stumped up a £159.99 one off fee.

A selection of networks and retailers, including EE, Three, O2 and Vodafone have all confirmed plans to stock the new Samsung handsets.
