MWC 2015: Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge: where to buy it in the US?

MWC 2015: Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge: where to buy it in the US?

With the Samsung Galaxy S6 and its even sharper-looking cousin, the Galaxy S6 Edge, fully announced and tested, the next question on everyone’s mind is where to buy it in the US?

At MWC 2015, Samsung touted the global release date of April 10, but didn’t lay out specifics on which American carriers would be launching the pair of phones on that day and which will come later.

However, all of the major post-paid networks and even a few pre-paid carriers simultaneously emailed TechRadar to let us know that they’d stock Galaxy S6 and, in some cases, the Edge version.

As more carriers and stores reveal their official availability and the cost, we’ll update this page with exact release dates and prices down to the penny.

Post-paid carriers

No surprise, all four of the major US carriers picked up Samsung’s newest flagship Android smartphone as well as its curved variant.

AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular are proudly claiming that "the next big thing is almost here," but then immediately ask customers to stay tuned for more information, without a release date. "Six appeal" can be just a tease sometimes.

But if it’s anything like the slightly staggered Samsung Galaxy S5 launch, these top-tier networks should be able to deliver the phone on its official release date or soon after. It’s never been so long of a wait that you’d want to switch carriers.

Pre-paid carriers

Are long-term contracts not your thing? A few of notable American pre-paid carriers have also signed up to sell the Samsung Galaxy S6, but it may come well after the April 10 release date.

Cricket Wireless, for example, emailed us to say that it’s coming, but "pricing, availability and further details will be announced at a later date."

In addition to Cricket Wireless, Boost Mobile and MetroPCS are also on board to sell the normal S6, yet their details are even more scarce.

Because there are no contracts involved and monthly fees generally start at $35, expect to pay in full for the phone. This could be why we’re not seeing the more expensive Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge in this space at the moment.

Physical stores

Samsung will be making a big retail push at its usual vendors including Best Buy where it has micro-stores set up within the electronics company’s stores nationwide.

Other US retailers scheduled to carry the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge include Amazon, Target and, of course, Walmart.

More US stores and concrete prices will be added to this growing list, as Samsung’s two smartphones are just hours old. We’ll update this page as more becomes available from American carriers.
