Vodafone Qatar announces pricing for Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge
Are you looking to be one of the first in the region to buy the new Samsung Galaxy smartphone? Vodafone Qatar had gone online with a pre-registration program for the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones after its MWC 2015 keynote. Few days ago, pricing details for these smartphones in the UAE turned up courtesy of Sharaf DG and Axiom. Turns out that the UAE wouldn’t be the only country to confirm the availability.
Qatar becomes the next country in the region, courtesy of Vodafone Qatar. The telecom operator recently announced the pricing for both the latest Samsung Galaxy models. Topping off the pricing announcements, Vodafone Qatar has also brought their pre-order program forward as well. Pricing for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge can be seen in the below table:
|Galaxy S6||QAR 2,599||QAR 2,899|
|Galaxy S6 Edge||QAR 3,099||QAR 3,399|
Currently, only the 32 GB and 64GB models of both smartphones are the only pre-order options, with the 128 Gb one nowhere in sight. Those who pre-order will need to have a valid Qatar ID and each person can order only one unit. Pre-order customers can collect their units from 10th April, and each customer will also receive an additional free gift from Vodafone. When you look at it, residents of Qatar get to own it 5 days before the UAE.
Leading up to its retail release, there will also be live demo units of both the Samsung Galaxy phones from 20th March at the following Vodafone branches: Villaggio Mall, City Centre Mall, and Landmark Mall
