We’ve done a “Re/boxing.” Now it’s time for an unboxing.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge showed up on Re/code’s doorstep just yesterday, and we’ll be spending the next few days getting to know Samsung’s latest flagship smartphones — our likes, dislikes, hopes for the future (err, I mean … Samsung’s future). But in the meantime, we wanted to give you a glimpse of what to expect when the handsets arrive in the U.S. on April 10.

Samsung will begin taking preorders for the phones on March 27. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular will offer both models, while Boost Mobile, Cricket and MetroPCS will carry the Galaxy S6. Here is all the pricing information we have so far:

  • AT&T: The 32-gigabyte Galaxy S6 will cost $22.84 a month with the carrier’s Next 24 installment plan, or $200 with a two-year contract. Off-contract pricing is $685. The Galaxy S6 Edge will start at $27.17 a month, or $300 on contract. Off-contract pricing is $815.
  • Sprint: The 32GB Galaxy S6 through its Unlimited Plus leasing program will cost $80 per month, which includes the device and unlimited voice, text and data. The 64GB model is $5 more per month, and the 128GB model is $10 more per month. The Galaxy S6 Edge will cost $85 per month.
  • T-Mobile: The Galaxy S6 will be available for $28.33 per month for 24 months or $679.72 for full retail price. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S6 Edge will cost $32.49 per month for 24 months or $779.79.

April 10 is shaping up to be a big day, as HTC also plans to release its latest Android flagship, the One M9, on the same day. We’ll be taking a look at all three devices, so check back soon for our full review.
