Brits can now grab a Samsung Galaxy S6 or a Galaxy S6 edge from a number of retailers. Note that only the phones with smaller storage capacities are available, you’ll have to wait a couple of weeks for the 64GB and 128GB models. You’ll have to wait for a Gold one too.
The Carphone Warehouse has both the S6 and S6 edge. The Galaxy S6 starts at £40 a month for the 32GB model. The Gold and 64GB models are coming in 2-3 weeks, while the 128GB options are at least a month out.
The Galaxy S6 edge starts at £100 upfront and £47 a month for the 64GB model (no 32GB option). Black 64GB phones will be in stock in 1-2 weeks, the rest will take 2-3 weeks or longer to hit the shelves.
