Samsung Galaxy S6, last year’s flagship smartphone, is now on offer at leading American wireless carrier AT&T.
This deal comes in at a time when the South Korean tech giant is just days away from unveiling a new Samsung Galaxy S7 and another Galaxy S7 Edge. In order to get their current stocks moving, AT&T has decided to come in with a sweet deal for all persons who wish to have last year’s flagship in their pockets instead of waiting to get this year’s version. Even though rumors are rife that Samsung is working on a massive device in the form of S7, the phone’s predecessor is still a very powerful device.
Buy one get one free
In a deal that will see customers of the second largest carrier in the United States buy one Samsung Galaxy S6 and get another Samsung Galaxy S6 32GB variant completely for free. This is good news for any person who wants to get a friend or loved one this device.
To make the deal even sweeter than you’d imagine, AT&T will also be giving out a free Galaxy S6 to anyone who buys any of the Galaxy S6 Edge versions, the phablet Galaxy Note 5 as well as the rugged and water-resistant Galaxy S6 Active. As far as the free package is concerned, you can also get a free Samsung Galaxy S6 Active after buying any of the above-mentioned devices.
There is a catch
In order to ensure that the offer stays competitive, AT&T has decided to make it a little tougher for its subscribers. For starters, one needs to get both phones on AT&T Next as well as have a qualified service of not less than $70 monthly. For some reason not known to us, the wireless carrier’s deal is void in Rhode Island, Connecticut as well as Miami-Dade.
In addition, it is important you know that the deal is not permanent. It only runs until March 31, so hurry while it still lasts. Make sure you take your time to read the Terms & Conditions of the deal via the official website of AT&T in order to get know-how of what it entails.
You might be a little disappointed that Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Active are still stuck on the older Android Lollipop operating system. However, there is nothing to worry about for this won’t be forever. Samsung has promised that it will be rolling out Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow updates to these devices this year. In fact, there is word that the Galaxy S6 has already started receiving the update to the latest OS, but it might take some time before it reaches all users.
