Here's an interesting double story for you guys this morning. Both the HTC One M9 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 have been featured in two different contests. What's especially exciting about these contests is that they basically leaked the final retail prices of both products.

First, we have a T-Mobile contest in which you can win one of several prizes, including a Samsung Galaxy S6. The contest lists the price of the Galaxy S6 as $699. While they don't specify which storage option version of the Galaxy S6 this is, more than likely they are referring to the 32GB model. This means the Galaxy S6 base US price will likely be about $50 more than the previous generation Galaxy S5 when it launched.

Second, we have an HTC contest. This one is giving away an HTC One M9 and shares its approximate retail value as $599. Interestingly, this is about $50 less than Best Buy listed the device ahead of the unveiling. This contest also does not reveal the storage option on this device, but it too is expected to be the 32GB version.

If we were to extrapolate on this base model pricing, it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to conclude the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be $699, $799 and $899 for each of the 32GB, 64GB & 128GB models respectively.

Along that same line of thinking, the HTC One M9 would be $599 for the 32GB, $699 for the 64GB and $799 for the 128GB (if there is one this size). It seems like the flagship phones' prices are slowly creeping upwards...

$50 more for a far superior S-Series device when compared to its previous generation doesn't sound like much. Then add another $60 for the wireless charger, $40 for an extended battery pack, and another $100 for the next tier of internal storage since SDcards are gone and your price just skyrocketed. Granted, most folks buy over time on a two year plan so the majority of the cost will be spread out. Don't forget to include the now mandatory Urban Armor Gear/Otter Box case since the glass back will be suicidal if dropped.
