At a time when Samsung’s latest Galaxy S7 is likely to hit the store shelves on March 11, the predecessor Galaxy S6, on the other hand, is now available at a massively discounted price in the U.S.
Samsung Galaxy S6, tied to the model number “SM-G920F,” is a brand new GSM factory unlocked handset that works with T-Mobile, AT&T and others. Retailer eBay has listed the 32 GB model of this device for just $399.99. The original price of the handset used to be $599.99. This means, buyers can save $200, which translates to a killer discount of 33 percent.
It is worth noting that being an international variant, this handset comes with a U.K. charger. However, a U.S. adaptor has reportedly been bundled with the device package. This is a limited time offer and upon ordering the Galaxy S6, free shipping service can be availed from the retailer.
As of today, only the White and Blue variants are available on discount. Here is the direct link to order the 32 GB Samsung Galaxy S6 from eBay.
Moving on to key specifications, the Galaxy S6 carries a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display, along with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels resolution and Gorilla Glass 4 protection. It comes powered by an octa-core (Samsung Exynos 7420) chipset and backed by 3 GB of RAM.
While Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OS runs the device, it can be upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. Notably, the Marshmallow update has already made its way to Galaxy S6 handsets in South Korea. And a recent leak suggested that the U.S. Galaxy S6 versions will receive the firmware sometime in March.
Furthermore, there is a cool 16-megapixel primary sensor mounted on the handset with LED flash and OIS support in tow. In addition, a 5-megapixel selfie-clicker is also part of the device. Other than the 32 GB native storage space, it does not support microSD card to facilitate expansion.
Battery-wise, a Li-Ion 2,550 mAh non-removable cell backs the entire configuration. The S6 comes equipped with a fingerprint sensor embedded on the home button and it supports Samsung Pay.
