The HTC One M9 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 are the hottest launches from the MWC 2015 and they’re both confirmed to be released in the US soon. However, there’s absolutely no word on how much these handset will retail for, but official contests being run for the two devices may have just revealed that information.
First we have the Samsung Galaxy S6 which is the latest flagship from the South Korean conglomerate. The company is keeping mum about how much the device will retail for in the US, but T-Mobile accidentally spilled the beans. Android Central is reporting that the carrier is holding a contest where it’ll be giving the new handset to customers for free.
And in a dedicated web page which highlights the rules for the contest, T-Mobile has listed the Samsung phone’s retail tag as $699 which is an entire $100 more compared to the Galaxy S5 when it was launched last year. The HTC One M9’s official selling amount also got revealed in the same way, but not through a carrier as it was the company itself that’s running a promotion, notes GSMArena.
The One M9 will be cheaper compared to the Galaxy S6 at $599 which seems obvious considering that the latter features better hardware like a 2K display and a 14nm processor amongst others. The aforementioned amounts are full retail, but you can expect both devices to be tagged the same when carriers start offering them with the usual 2-year contracts.
Release date details for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 still remain a mystery, but that information will most likely be shared soon, so stay tuned.
