Vodacom reveals South African Samsung S6 launch date

1 min read


Earlier this month at Mobile World Congress, Samsung revealed the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Both are incredibly good looking phones that I was only allowed to use to take a selfie with before giving it back to the PR guys. It’s okay, though, because the phone is releasing on local markets soon and we can test it for ourselves.

Over on the Vodacom website (thanks MyBroadBand), they’re promoting their deals for the new flagship Samsung devices. Here is the promo:

S6 promo

That’s right, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge will be coming to South Africa on 10 April.

When I had a swanky dinner with the Samsung people so we could watch the MWC live stream, the things that stood out to me the most about the phone were the wireless charging and the curbing of bloatware. I was surprised that these phones aren’t carrying on the tradition of being waterproof, but I suppose most people don’t care about it as much as we all thought. They’re more concerned with the metal casing and the faster charging – things that actually have an impact on day to day living with the device.

Are you keen for this latest and greatest phone from Samsung, or will you wait for reviews to make your decision? Do you even read phone reviews before buying, or are you that brand loyal that you’ll buy whatever the new phone is?

    I have the Galaxy S4 Active. Bloatware is irritating – glad they are curbing it

    Now they just need to release the new firmware for the S5… it’s been out for 5 months, and we still don’t have it.

      Considering Sony are canning their smartphone division (coupled with the fact that my wife’s Z1 has given nothing but problems), I wouldn’t invest in a Sony phone at the moment…

      Love the HTC One series and the LG’s as well…but the S6 looks like a step in the right direction for Samsung. I might give it a try if I get the chance.

    Android in general I don’t like but Samsung don’t give two shits about anything.
