Samsung's Galaxy S6 turns real cheap as Galaxy S7 nears launch!

If you've been waiting for the right moment to get hold of Samsung's Galaxy S6 on the cheap, now is the time. Samsung is now selling Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge for just £379 and £499!

Just like it has been doing with the Galaxy S flagship phones so far, Samsung will sell the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones at prices that are much cheaper than they originally sold for, and just like Apple does with its iPhones, the older S6 and S6 Edge won't feature premium pricing anymore. Instead of costing £499 and £619, Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are now available for £379 and £499 respectively.

In other news, CNET got hold of an FCC filing of Samsung's upcoming S7 and S7 Edge phones. As per the filing, S7 Edge will feature a 3,600 mAh battery, which means a 38 per cent stronger one than the battery that powered the Galaxy S6 Edge which was launched around the same time last year.

As per CNET, the FCC filing also reveals that the new battery will benefit from the latest Exynos 8890 processor as well as Android 6.1 Marshmallow's Doze feature which will let it run for much longer without giving up much juice.

 

 

Not too long ago, @evleaks posted leaked images of the upcoming flagships on Twitter, leaving us to wonder if the inspiration behind the design came from the existing Galaxy S6 phones or the pricier Galaxy Note 5 phablet which never saw a launch in the UK. The leaked images showed the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge phones sporting a glass frame on the back and bearing a bit of resemblance with the Galaxy Note 5 phablet.

The upcoming phones are also tipped to come with new Exynos 8890 processor, dual SIM variants, Quad HD displays and features like 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity, NFC and wireless charging.

Probably the most exciting spec in the new phones is Samsung's home-grown Exynos 8890 processor. “The Exynos 8890, Samsung's next high-powered chipset, set a new record score on the AnTuTu benchmark site. The tally of 103,692 easily topped the 79,000 recently scored by the Kirin 950 SoC, Huawei's new top-of-the-line chip (a more recent run through of the Mate 8 produced a score above 94K),” said Phone Arena.
