A slew of discount deals on new and refurbished gadgets are being offered by various retailers, including eBay and Amazon. In addition to the devices released in 2015, some of the discounts involve the smartphones released in 2014, like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. But now, eBay is back with a killer discount deal on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone. In any case, readers should note that, this discount is on the brand new S6 Edge version and not the refurbished one.
Retailer eBay’s brand new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge with 32 GB of native storage capacity is now priced at $549.99. This handset is the black sapphire variant, and eBay is reportedly offering free shipping within the U.S. Also noteworthy is the seller, 232 Technologies INC, which has a record of 99.5 percent positive feedback, notes Phone Arena.
Furthermore, this Galaxy S6 Edge unit is an unlocked model and hence, it will support any GSM carrier’s network within the U.S., including AT&T, T-Mobile and MetroPCS. Needless to say, this device will not work under the Sprint and Verizon networks.
The handset’s $550 price-tag is a killer offer because AT&T is selling the same device for a whopping $815. On the other hand, T-Mobile has also cut the price of this Samsung handset, along with the flagship counterpart, to a cool $680.
Meanwhile, here is a quick recap of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge specifications and key features. This smartphone features a 5.1-inch display, equipped with 2,560 x 1,440 pixel screen resolution. This display configuration trickles down to an impressive pixel density of 577 ppi. The phone is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor and backed by 3 GB of RAM.
The Galaxy S6 Edge runs on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OS, along with TouchWiz UI. In any case, this OS version is upgradeable to the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Other significant S6 Edge features include Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, double-edge-display, a non-removable Li-Ion 2,600 mAh battery, 16 MP primary camera unit and a 5 MP front-facing snapper. Potential buyers can head to eBay’s online store to purchase this handset.
