Yes you’re reading it right. Verizon opens up the pre-order for Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and HTC One M9. The trio were announced by their respective manufacturers in the MWC last month, and got a lot of attention.
These three devices were expected to be released somewhere around last month’s end, but did not show up. Some lucky customers were able to buy the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge from T-Mobile (they have even got an OTA update already since then), but no such luck was for the customers who love the HTC One M9, and are waiting eagerly to spend their hard-earned money for it. Now, since Verizon is fulfilling your demand, be ready with your credit card.
Both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge as well as the new HTC flagship will be available from Verizon in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB variants. On a two-year contract, the Galaxy S6 costs $199.99 upfront for the 32GB version, $299.99 for the 64GB, and $399.99 for the 128GB, while the Galaxy S6 Edge costs $100 more, pegging the price of the 32GB version at $299.99, the 64GB at $399.99, and the 128GB at $499.99 on contract. On Verizon’s Edge program, which allows customers to pay for their devices in monthly installments for the next 24 months, the Galaxy S6 32GB costs $24.99 a month, the 64GB $29.16 a month, and the 128GB $33.33 a month. The Galaxy S6 Edge is a tad more expensive, with the 32GB costing $29.16 a month, the 64GB $33.33 a month, and the 128GB $37.49 a month.
There are options to buy the devices without any long-term agreements as well. The customers should be able to order the 32GB Galaxy S6 for $599.99, the 64GB for $699.99, and the 128GB for $799.99. To get the Galaxy S6 Edge, they will need to add $100 per device, making the price of the 32GB version $699.99, the 64GB $799.99, and the 128GB $899.99.
The One M9 is available from Verizon for $199 on a two-year contract, or $24.99 monthly on the Verizon Edge plan. Under no contract, this device will cost you $599.99. Only the 32 GB option will be available, but it has the benefit of having a microSD card slot over the S6 and S6 Edge, which is definitely a plus point.
Once you pre-order any of the devices, you will get it in your hands within seven to ten business days, as said by Verizon. However, some of the versions such as 128 GB S6 or S6 Edge, and the Gold Versions will be available a little late, taking the last date up to May 1.
