We’ve known for a while that the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were coming to select markets on April 10th, but now Samsung has confirmed this timeframe will also apply to those in the United States. If you’re wishing to pre-order, you’ll have your chance on March 27th.
If these dates sound pretty familiar, that’s because HTC is opening pre-orders up tomorrow as well, with plans to ship the phone on April 10th. Coincidence? We think not. When you consider that the HTC One M9 is already being met with mixed reception, and add the fact Samsung is generally better at marketing, things don’t look so great for HTC here.
In addition to confirming the pre-order and shipping dates, Samsung also has revealed that the 32, 64 and 128GB models will be made available in the United States, and in the color choices of black, white and gold. That means bright blue and green will not be coming to the states. Keep in mind these are just general dates, and so actual carrier pre-order/shipping dates (and even colors) may vary a little. That said, all four major carriers are signed on to offer the Galaxy S6 and Edge from day one.
