Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus reaches UK shores, up for pre-orderingIBTimes UK

Samsung's much expected Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, which was launched on 13 August in the US, has now reached the United Kingdom from where it can be pre-ordered.

It is worth noting that Samsung's other high-ender, the Galaxy Note 5, will not be available in the UK thereby making the Galaxy S6 Edge the only latest flagship for Samsung loyalists.

Galaxy S6 Edge Plus can be reserved directly on Samsung's official web portal. Both the 32GB and 64GB variants of the high-end smartphone are currently open for pre-ordering.

However, these Galaxy Edge Plus variants are the SIM-free/carrier-unlocked editions that require buyers to shell out the full retail price to purchase. The 32GB Black Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is available for £749, whereas the 64GB Gold edition has a price tag of £829. Samsung also claims it is shipping orders for free across the UK.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus shipments begin on 3 September.

Apart from Samsung, major carriers in the UK are also offering the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus with/without contracts. Three is currently offering the high-end smartphone at £41 per month, with £99 upfront cost. Orders will be delivered from 4 September.

O2 has also opened pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus; prospective buyers can own the handset at £46 per month, and at £9.99 upfront. The carrier is also offering the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus on its Pay & Go tariff plan beginning at £10 per month with built-in data.
