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.

  1. I don’t think you know what you’re talking about. On their Q2 revenue report, Samsung said that their mobile division revenue is slightly over previous quarter, saying that the S6 and S6 edge are the reasons for the slight bump in quarter over quarter revenue.

      1. Sana man lang nilagay ng unbox yan para mas maging makatotohanan bawat statement nila sana man lang naglagay sila according to: or based on: kailangan talaga ng proweba importante yan e.

      2. Lol. The articles you cited talk about the whole of Samsung’s mobile devices division. We are talking solely about the S6 and S6 edge here. Unbox makes it look like these flagship devices don’t sell really well. Yes, the sales aren’t as high as what’s predicted by Samsung but as they mentioned in their Q2 revenue report, these two are the reasons why their mobile devices division revenue is higher than that of the previous quarter. So as to “maintain the momentum”, they are going to lower the prices of the said devices.

        The articles you linked to even said that “the company couldn’t keep up with the demand”, meaning there’s a high demand for the phones, it’s just that Samsung cannot produce them fast enough thus, costing them revenue.

        Cutting the prices is not a desperate move by Samsung, rather, it’s their strategy to maintain the high (albeit lower than expected) volume of sales.
