After announcing the official launch dates in Asia of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones earlier this week, Samsung has also confirmed the prices of its new flagship devices in Thailand.
The Samsung Galaxy S6, which was announced alongside the S6 Edge at the Mobile World Congress event held in Barcelona in March, features a totally redesigned metal and glass case, with a 5.1 inch QHD screen and stripped back version of its TouchWiz flavour of the Android operating system.
The Galaxy S6 Edge has pretty much the same specs as the S6, however, it features a three sided screen, which offers added functionality and features and which makes it arguably Samsung’s boldest, most innovative phone to date.
Both phones are available in white, black and gold, with the S6 is also available in blue, whereas the S6 Edge can also be purchased in green.
According to Samsung, both phones also include high speed wireless charging capabilities which is can provide enough power to enable users to watch a two hour video after just 10 minutes of charging.
It’s the 32GB versions of the S6 and S6 Edge which will initially be available to buy in Thailand from April 20th. However, the phone is available for you to try out beforehand at Samsung stores throughout Thailand.
Thailand’s leading mobile network operators, AIS, Dtac and True Move are also now taking pre-orders for both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
With declining global sales, Samsung is hoping that the new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will help to regain some of the ground lost to the likes of Apple and Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi.
Early reviews from Europe and the United States, have described the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge and Samsung’s best smartphones to date and genuine rivals to the iPhone 6 and Plus.
