As we announced earlier today the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be available internationally on April 10 along side the HTC One M9. Rumors have it that the S6 and S6 Edge are releasing in the US a day later on April 11th. It is more likely that the device will be released a few weeks later after carriers have had a chance to get their hands on the device. That being said, the best way for you to acquire this device as early as possible would be to get in on the pre-orders. Pre-orders are already available in Canada and Italy. They will also be available in the UK on March 20th. Carriers to include Carphone Warehouse, Vodaphone, Three, EE, and O2, they all will allow those who pre-order to pick up their devices by April 9th.
Verizon is the only US carrier that has announced a pre-order date thus far. They will be accepting pre-orders starting on April 1 according to this tweet. Other US carriers including AT&T, Sprint, and T-mobile each have a registration page where you can sign up for updates. BestBuy and Amazon also have registration pages. This would be the best way to be informed of when the pre-order goes live for your carrier.
