Samsung Galaxy S6 pre-orders in South Africa

Pre-orders and pre-registrations for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are available from South Africa’s mobile operators, as well as Incredible Connection.

The two devices are set to launch locally from 10 April 2015.

Incredible Connection’s off-contract price for the Samsung Galaxy S6 is R10,999.90, and R14,999.90 for the Galaxy S6 Edge.

Those interested in getting the phones on contract can register their intentions with Vodacom, Telkom, MTN, Cell C, and Cellucity (Vodacom reseller).

None of the operators list pricing for the Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge, but they do ask for details to perform a credit check to ensure you qualify for a contract.

Vodacom said its prices should be finalised in the second week of April, while MTN has promised to release prices “in the last weeks of March”.
