Update #2: The eBay deal is sold out too.
Amazon is sold out but we found an even better deal on ebay. $389 shipped for a new 32GB Galaxy S6
If you’re after a fantastic current flagship smartphone this holiday season, you may just be in luck today. One of Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals is an unlocked
Samsung Galaxy S6 for just $399. That’s a full $200 discount on its original full retail price, and $40 cheaper than we’ve seen it elsewhere. Specifically, Amazon is offering the 32GB US Version in Black, the same color shown in the image above.
As a reminder, the Galaxy S6 was the first major flagship Samsung device to feature an all-glass and metal build, departing from the plastic devices of previous years. It has a 5.1-inch Quad HD resolution AMOLED screen coated in Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and is powered by a Samsung Exynos 7420 octa-core processor. The main camera on the back boasts 16 megapixels, 4K video recording and optical image stabilization while the front camera is 5MP. It’s also equipped with a fingerprint scanner, wireless charging and a 2,550mAh battery.
If you’re wanting to grab one, we’d advise doing it soon. Last week when the Nexus 6 dropped in price for Black Friday, inventory put aside for the daily deal sold out within a couple of hours. We expect a phone as desirable as the S6 won’t take long to sell out either.
It won’t be too long before Samsung unveils the next generation Galaxy S. We’re expecting the manufacturer to announce the Galaxy S7 at an event sometime in the first quarter of next year with a retail launch within a few weeks afterwards. It’ll allegedly feature a Snapdragon 820 processor in the US and China models, and its own recently-announced Exynos 8890 processor in other markets.
