More Samsung Galaxy S6 prices

Rectron has opened pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, which are set to launch in South Africa on 10 April 2015.

The 32GB Galaxy S6 is listed for R9,999 excluding VAT (almost R11,399 VAT inclusive), while a 32GB Galaxy S6 Edge will cost R13,999 excl. (R15,959 incl.) at Rectron.

These prices do not compare too favourably with the pre-order prices announced by Incredible Connection in March.

Incredible Connection is selling the Samsung Galaxy S6 for R10,999.90, and is asking for R14,999.90 for the Galaxy S6 Edge.

None of South Africa’s mobile network operators have confirmed their pricing for Samsung’s new flagship Android smartphones.

Some of the key specifications of the two devices are summarised in the table below.
