Expect price cuts for the existing Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge if the S6 Edge+ launches on August 21.

Samsung and LG are facing tremendous pressure from competing flagship smartphones. As two of the largest smartphone manufacturers in South Korea, they are experiencing lower sales due to competition from Chinese manufacturers Xiaomi, Huawei, and Lenovo. Additionally, Chinese flagships usually retail for much less in comparison.

As a result of its recent financial results, Samsung will be cutting the prices of its two high-end smartphones. Exactly how much of a reduction we can expect for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, however, is not yet known.

The manufacturer may be unfazed about the high prices of its future smartphones if current rumors are to be believed. Sammobile claims that the Galaxy S6 Edge+ will cost at least 800 Euros for the 32 GB model. The current 32 GB version of the Galaxy S6 Edge (SM G925F) retails for 550 Euros, while the 32 GB Galaxy S6 (SM G920F) retails for 660 Euros. The source expects the S6 Edge+ to be formally announced on August 13 during the Galaxy Unpacked 2015 event in NYC with an official retail launch on August 21.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
