We have already seen the Galaxy S6 leak in all its glory, and now, the final retail prices of the handset has leaked as well. 

According to an employee of a network carrier in Europe, the 16GB, 64GB and 128GB variants of the Galaxy S6 will be priced at €749 ($849), €849 ($965), and €949 ($1,076), respectively. For comparison, the 16GB, 64GB and 128GB iPhone 6 Plus are priced at $750, $850 and $950, respectively.

The employee also claims that Samsung will be launching one variant of the Galaxy S6 with a curved screen. However, the handset will be in short supply due to yield issues with the curved screen. He claims that the Galaxy S6 with a curved display will make up one-third of the total shipments of the company’s upcoming flagship. Additionally, he states that Samsung’s marketing division will focus on pushing the Galaxy S6 ‘Edge’ more, which is a bit strange especially because of the supply constraints.

Thanks to the curved display, the Galaxy S6 ‘Edge’ will sport a significantly higher price tag with the 64GB variant coming in at €949 ($1, 076) and the 128GB variant coming in at €1,049 ($1,189).

Samsung is scheduled to unveil the Galaxy S6 on March 1st (this Sunday) at MWC.
