The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are just three days away from their official worldwide launch now, but so many individuals interested in the devices want to know what it’ll cost to pay for the device outright or sign a two-year agreement. South African carrier Vodacom is back to provide its own pricing scheme for the two devices.
The entry-level model, the 32GB Galaxy S6, will cost R12,399 ($1,045 USD) for South African customers, but you can get the device on a monthly payment plan for R529 ($45 USD) if you take advantage of Vodacom’s Smart S plan which provides 75 minutes, 200 text messages, and 200MB of monthly data for R199 monthly ($17 USD).
The 64GB Galaxy S6 edge will retail for R16,149 ($1,361 USD) or R679 per month ($57 USD) with Vodacom’s Smart S plan.
Both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will come in Black Sapphire, White Pearl, and Gold Platinum versions. There is no word on whether or not you can expect the Emerald Green Galaxy S6 edge.
Vodacom has stated that it will provide a free wireless charger and cover (worth R1,100) for both the S6 and S6 edge when the devices go on sale in the region on April 10th.
The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are Korean manufacturer Samsung’s latest mobile devices that provide a 5.1-inch, Super AMOLED display with a 2,560 x 1,440p resolution (higher than 1080p), a 5MP front camera and 16MP back camera, both with f/1.9 apertures, the company’s own homegrown octa-core, Exynos 7420 processor that is on a planet of its own, with a 2,550mAh battery that should provide around 13-15 hours of normal use. We’ve received word that light usage should get users 3 days, although the nearly 3.7 million pixels in the display alone will be enough to drain your battery.
Vodacom South Africa customers, what say you? Are you ready to see the devices on April 10th?
