Vodacom has opened pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, and has revealed that the device will launch on 10 April 2015.
According Vodacom’s site, it will sell the Galaxy S6 with 32GB of internal storage, and the 64GB model of the Galaxy S6 Edge.
While Cellucity and Samsung require that you only register your interest, Vodacom’s pre-order preforms a credit check to see whether qualify for the contract you want to take the device on.
