Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge see price drops in U.S.
It has been rumored that the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge may receive price adjustments ever since Samsung's earnings report for last quarter was released. The price drops come in light of the disappointing sales of both devices, and Samsung attributes this to both the low demand for the S6 as well as demand too high to keep up with for the Edge. Though the price drop was expected, the first details on how much of a price drop there will be is finally emerging.
Each device will now have its price lowered by $100, and this is taking effect first in the United States and through a T-Mobile contract. Some believe that, due to this new low price, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will assume the pricing model of the previous two devices. It is expected that the price cuts will make their way to other carriers in the U.S. soon for those who do not use T-Mobile.
The timing of the cuts are perfect in light of Samsung's upcoming Unpacked event. If the company does offer the two new flagship phones at the prices seen with the S6 and S6 Edge, it could mean a high number of sales. The event is taking place on August 13th, and will also feature a new, unknown tablet.
