Vodacom has, through a general presser, confirmed that the all new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edgewill finally become available on its network when it launches ‘soon’ with support for the carrier’s LTE network. And it looks like rumors got the date right, too; the 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED beasts will go on sale at Vodacom on Friday, April 10th, the suggested global launch date.
We don’t know how much they’ll cost, but the edge will carry a notable premium over its pedestrian cousin. And there are, as always, some caveats you need to know. You’ll be able to choose from 32, 64 or 128GB variants, but choose carefully: There’s no room for a microSD slot anywhere. You can’t remove the battery (the one major downgrade from the GS5). You’ve got a whopping four colors to choose from. One looks hugely better than the other. Other than that, though, Samsung is sending one message loud and clear: “Don’t count us out.” Lesson learned.
