Samsung is preparing to launch its new flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge around the world. A new report claims AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile will begin selling the smartphones on April 11.
Samsung is certainly keeping itself busy in the weeks leading up to the launch of its highly anticipated Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
When Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge at Mobile World Congress, the smartphones were very well received and the curved display Galaxy S6 Edge even took home the coveted "Best New Handset" award at the show. The company revealed the devices would be available globally starting from April 10, which made U.S. smartphone fans wonder when they would be able to get their hands on Samsung's latest and greatest handsets.
We recently reported that Verizon was the first U.S. carrier to announce preorder details for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Verizon customers will be able to preorder both smartphones beginning on April 1.
A new report claims the handsets will go on sale April 11 at all four major U.S. carriers; Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. The site's tipster says, "that Samsung reps are currently on the road, visiting retail locations with demos of the Galaxy S6."
If you're wondering why the dual-edge display Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge wasn't mentioned, the site claims its source was informed by a Samsung rep who revealed that the more premium Galaxy S6 Edge would be released in a "limited capacity," just like the Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge launch last year.
It's always best to take reports of unconfirmed smartphone launch dates and details with a grain of salt. Verizon did mention that it would be taking preorders for the Galaxy S6 Edge, so it's unclear how limited its stock might be. We'll keep you posted.
