Price cut will be coming soon
Samsung has has hit a rough patch with its new flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. To be perfectly blunt, the new phones aren’t hitting expectations set by the company because of a number of reasons – manufacturing delays in the production of the S6 Edge and consumer backlash over the omission of expandable memory seem to have killed the momentum of the phone, something that the Korean company is very much aware of.
To combat this, Samsung is looking to maintain sales momentum for high-end products by “adjusting the price of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge and introducing new premium smartphone models”. One of those new premium smartphone models is obviously the upcoming Galaxy Note 5, and the company also said that they’re launching a new variant of the Galaxy S6 Edge, which validates the leaks that we’ve seen earlier of the device.
Will the reduced prices of Samsung’s flagships help with demand? It depends on a lot of things, but primarily on the amount of supply the S6 Edge has now, plus how deep the price cut goes. We’ve reached out to the folks in Samsung PH to find out when the price cut will take effect locally, we’ll report back when they respond.
