The thing with flagship Samsung phones like the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge is that their prices drop very soon after their initial launches. While the company’s official eStore for India hasn’t changed the cost of either of the handsets mentioned above, online retailers like Flipkart and Snapdeal are already offering it for much lower than before.
So anyone who bought their Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge in a hurry, but would have waited if they knew they’d get it for even lower, is probably feeling really bad right now. The plain old S6 was pegged at Rs 49900, Rs 55900 and Rs 61900, for its 32GB, 64GB and 128GB versions, respectively. In that order, the Edge cost Rs 58900, Rs 64900 and Rs 70900.
Flipkart is now selling the 32GB Galaxy S6 for Rs 39000 to Rs 41900, the price varying by the choice of colors. And the 64GB capacity sells for Rs 47900. The Galaxy S6 Edge can be grabbed for Rs 55095 to Rs 56900, the rate again depending on the hue. Snapdeal is vending the 32GB variant of this smartphone for Rs 51143 to Rs 57400, and the 32GB Edge for Rs 38804 to Rs 50000.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 series was launched in India in early April. Just this month, they received the Android 5.1.1 update which brings along several changes to the user interface, a performance boost, a better exposure control system for the camera app and so on. Their main features cover a 5.1-inch 2K resolution screen, octa core Exynos 7 SoC, 3GB RAM and 16MP rear camera.
