It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for: Smart Communication has opened its registration page for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. The page mentions that it will soon be available through Smart’s data plans with no mention of other details. Upon registration, you get to choose storage capacities (32GB and 64GB) and colors (Black Sapphire, White Pearl and Gold Platinum).
Once you have completed registration, someone from Smart will give you a call to verify the details of your order. I pre-registered before (for another unit) to test if they’d contact me and I was surprised they gave me a call after just a day or two. They verified my identity and account. Sadly, my line was still under contract so no dice on retention.
Now if you’re still on the fence on whether the Galaxy S6 Edge is for you or not, preview units will soon be available on display in chosen Smart Stores. That way, you can poke and prod both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge to your heart’s content.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be available in the country starting April 18, 2015. For interested Smart subscribers (and non-subscribers alike), just follow this link (http://smart.com.ph/postpaid/galaxy-S6) and fill up the details.
