Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ on Thursday and revealed that both handsets will be available in stores in America starting August 21st, after a week of preorders. Following Samsung’s event, U.S. carriers have made their own Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ announcements, revealing pricing details for both devices.
Under AT&T’s Next program, the 32GB Galaxy Note 5 will sell for $0 down followed by $24.67 (Next 24 – 30 payments), $30.84 (Next 18 – 24 payments) or $37 (Next 12 – 20 payments) per month. Those monthly charges go up to $28, $35 and $42, respectively, for the 64GB Galaxy Note 5.
The Galaxy S6 edge+ is slightly more expensive. The 32GB version of the phone costs $0 down followed by $27.17 (Next 24 – 30 payments), $33.96 (Next 18 – 24 payments) or $40.75 (Next 12 – 20 payments) per month. The 64GB model will require $30.50, $38.13 and $45.75 monthly payments under the same Next plans.
Interestingly, the company says you can get a $300 credit for buying either device, although there are other requirements to meet, including trade-ins and carrier switching. Customers can order both smartphones starting at 3:00 p.m. ET.
The “Uncarrier” is also ready to take your Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ orders right away and is throwing in a full year of free Netflix if you buy either phone by September 30th, as long as you preregister for them by August 21st at T-Mobile.com/NextBigThing. The 32GB Galaxy Note 5 costs $0 down and then $29.17 for 23 months and then a final $29.08 for the 24th month (a total of $699.99), while the 32GB Galaxy S6 edge+ costs $0 down followed by 23 monthly payments of $32.50 and then a final $32.49 payment (or $779.99).
The 64GB versions of the handsets sell for either $779.99 (Galaxy Note 5) or $859.99 (Galaxy S6 edge+) outright, or via installments after a $99.99 upfront fee for either model. The Galaxy Note 5 requires 23 monthly payments of $28.34 each followed by a final $28.18 one, while the curvy phablet will cost you $31.67/month followed a final $31.59 payment.
Sprint has multiple purchase options for the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+, with the carrier taking pre-orders starting at 3:00 p.m. ET.
Choosing the contract route means paying $249.99 or $349.99 for the 32GB version of your selected phablet and inking a two-year agreement. The on-contract 64GB versions are more $100 more expensive, at $349.99 and $449.99.
With Sprint Lease or Sprint Easy Pay, you’d have to pay anywhere from $25/month to $34/month for a Galaxy Note 5 after $0 down, or from $30/month to $37/month for the Galaxy S6 edge+.
U.S. Cellular has better on-contract prices than Sprint. The carrier says the 32GB Galaxy Note 5 costs $199 with two-year contracts, while the Galaxy S6 edge+ is priced at $299 per month. Customers can also choose to pay for the devices in 20 monthly installments for any of the phones’ versions (U.S. Cellular will stock both 32GB and 64GB models of each phone).
However, U.S. Cellular will begin selling the phone in stores and online only on August 21st.
Verizon is selling the 32GB Galaxy Note 5 either for $696 or $29/month for 24 months after $0 down, while the 64GB model costs $792 or $33/month for 24 months after $0 down.
As expected, the Galaxy S6 edge+ is more expensive. The 32GB version costs $768 or $32/month for 24 months, while the 64GB model is priced at $864 outright or $36/month for 24 months.
