Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge – Storage and Colour Options Revealed

Having just announced a pair of premium handsets – the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge – Samsung has launched a webpage showcasing the superb selection of features which makes them must-have mobiles. But an interesting point spotted on there is that the curvier of the two will come with a basic storage capacity of 64GB, not 32GB like the regular model.

According to the info at Samsung.co.uk three storage options will be available for the Samsung Galaxy S6 – 32GB, 64GB and 128GB, whereas the Galaxy S6 Edge will only be offered with two options – 64GB and 128GB. The internal UFS 2.0-based storage capacity on both models is fixed and cannot be removed or upgraded with the usual microSD card support which Samsung has decided to do away with on its new flagship handsets (much like it decided not to include a removable battery).

This will set the entry price for the Galaxy S6 Edge even higher than the flat-screened Galaxy S6 and it might be somewhat presumptuous of Samsung to think that all buyers of the variant will be hungry for storage or perhaps it’s to make ownership of the edged model more of an elite club? After seeing the stunning S6 Edge announced at the Mobile World Congress that’s a club we’d love to join.

There’s also a bit of a difference in the colour choices between the pair as well, with the Galaxy S6’s stylish metal casing available in black, white, gold or blue and the Galaxy S6 Edge dropping the blue but offering green as an option instead. We don’t see this being a major factor over pricing but Samsung is keeping the cost close to its chest for the moment.

The Samsung website is currently taking registrations, along with UK retailer Carphone Warehouse and network provider O2 who are also now taking names ready for the April 20th launch of both devices.
