Earlier this morning, we joked about soon-to-be-announced carrier or retailer exclusives of Samsung’s Blue Topaz Galaxy S6 and Green Emerald Galaxy S6 Edge. Shortly after we posted that bit of news, readers pointed out the fact that Best Buy already has “new” listings for each phone in 32GB and 64GB variants. We aren’t even 48 hours removed from Samsung’s announcement of each color’s availability and Best Buy is prepared to sell them.
Now, these listings are for unlocked versions of each phone, so these aren’t exactly the “exclusives” we were referring to. Typically, Best Buy will get an exclusive on a blue version of Verizon’s Galaxy S6, or something along those lines. Since these aren’t tied to carriers, these don’t exactly fall into the scenario we complained about a couple of hours ago. Trust me, though, they are coming.
For now, if you were hoping to pick up either of these colors, you’ll have to wait a bit. Best Buy’s fresh listings are showing as “sold out.”
