Samsung’s current flagship duo can be purchased in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB variants but according to latest reports it appears that Samsung has discontinued the 128GB variant in select markets. It’s likely that the company has decided to do this because sales of the 128GB variant might not be up to the mark primarily due to the fact that it costs significantly more than the 32GB variant.
Samsung’s retail partners are no longer offering the 128GB Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge in Netherlands and India. So far these are the only two markets where this particular variant seems to have been discontinued.
For now the company’s partners in markets like UK, Australia, Singapore and North America are offering the 128GB variant so it remains to be seen if Samsung decides to pull it from all markets or if it goes on a case by case basis.
Onboard memory is an issue on these handsets since they don’t feature microSD card slots even though all previous Galaxy S flagships have had them.
Users have to rely upon cloud storage services or third party solutions in order to get extra storage on their devices, or they can decide to pay more and buy a 64GB or 128GB variant. Seems like not a lot of people are going for the latter at least in the aforementioned markets.
