Samsung's latest flagship smartphones are the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, but that does not mean that its previous flagship devices are no longer capable ones.
The Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy edge+, for instance, are still very much in line with the current needs of smartphone users. The devices are powered by Samsung's Exynos 7420 octa-core processor, with 3 GB of RAM for the Galaxy S6 edge and 4 GB of RAM for the Galaxy S7 edge+.
For customers that are looking to acquire either smartphone, Best Buy is currently offering deals for the devices with $315 discounts. That catch, however, is that the smartphones are locked to AT&T as their carrier.
The Galaxy S6 edge models being offered by Best Buy under the deal are the 32 GB black sapphire, the 32 GB white pearl, the 64 GB black sapphire, the 64 GB white pearl and the 64 GB gold platinum. The 32 GB Galaxy S6 edge units, which ship with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, are being sold at $399.99, compared to the regular price of $714.99, while the 64 GB units are being sold at $499.99, from the regular price of $814.99.
For the Galaxy S6 edge+, the models being offered are the 32 GB black sapphire and the 32 GB gold platinum. The Galaxy S6 edge+units, which ship with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, are being sold at $499.99, compared to the regular price of $814.99.
AT&T owners of the Galaxy S6 edge, however, are still waiting for the promised Android 6.0 marshmallow update for the smartphone, which was expected to be rolled out last month.
While the update is yet to be released, with no definite date announced for the rollout, the deals posted by Best Buy are still good ones as it would allow customers to save hundreds of dollars on a capable smartphone. Even at Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, the Galaxy S6 edge is a great smartphone, and the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update should be coming soon.
