Pre-order your Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge from 31 March, get it earlier on 10 April

Samsung's all-metal and curvy smartphones are coming soon, with prices starting from S$998 (without contract)

With slightly more than a week till the official 11 April release of Samsung's new superphones, you'll have a chance to make sure there's one waiting for you come release day.

From 31 March, all major high street retailers will have the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge available for pre-order. Samsung has said that the customers who pre-order their device from samsung.com or from the Samsung Experience Store will have the opportunity to pick up their new phone a day early on 10 April.

Without a contract, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be priced from S$998 and S$1168 respectively for the 32GB version.

Now, given that there's no microSD expandable storage available this time, you might want to pony up for a larger capacity, with the 64GB variant priced at S$1148 and S$1298 for the S6 and S6 Edge respectively. Those with a higher budget can opt for the 128GB version, priced at S$1288 for the S6 and S$1448 for the S6 Edge.

Likewise, the three telcos will be offering a registration of interest for the Samsung smartphones. Starting from 10am on 31 March, you can register your interest to purchase the smartphones at these websites:

We've already spent some extensive time with the S6 and S6 Edge to give you the full details, and we're slightly more excited about the curvy S6 Edge. It's one of the most innovative phones we've seen this year, entering curvy screen territory alongside the LG G Flex 2. Most flagship smartphones have become a little stale with their uniformities, so this new eye-catching design is something new we're rather looking forward to.

The S6 is going to be a fantastic phone in its own right, packing lots of features into a very attractive package in their new plastic-less metal chassis, which also happens to be just lighter than the S5. The Edge is that and more, with special widgets which have the potential to make the wraparound screen be more than just eye candy.

More helpful in the night than the day, you can preset it to display a night clock, or illuminate in different colours when the phone rings letting you know exactly who's calling you. Samsung's even invented a new way to hang up - the new Edge houses a fingerprint sensor next to the camera that you can press to quickly reject the call.

Why it's smart to pre-order

Getting the phone is just one part of the equation. Because you would want to use the wireless charging feature. And to do that, you'll need the Samsung Wireless Charging Pad. Which, by the way, will be given to all successful pre-order customers on 10 April. That, and a Clear Cover, both of which form the S$146 bundle that's given absolutely free just because you're putting a S$50 deposit to reserve a unit.
