Galaxy S6

Samsung removed the microSD card slot in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, offering the phones in three storage variants: 32, 64 and 128GB. However, it looks like the manufacturer has pulled the 128GB model from its Indian store, which is currently listing just the 32 and 64GB versions.

Low demand for the higher-storage variant could be the motivator for its removal, although at this stage we don't know whether the omission is temporary or if Samsung has decided to pull the plug altogether. The 128GB models were priced exorbitantly at launch in India, with the Galaxy S6 128GB variant costing ₹61,900 ($972) and the Galaxy S6 edge 128GB version debuting for ₹70,900 ($1,116). Samsung rolled out price cuts for either model to the tune of $75 a few months ago, which had little effect on sales.

Samsung's online stores in the U.S., U.K. and Canada are still offering the 128GB model, and for now, the removal of the higher-storage version seems to be limited to India. We'll let you know once we hear more on the matter.
