Samsung launched its 2015 flagships Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge with three storage options — 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB. Now however, Samsung seems to have discontinued the 128GB variants of both the smartphones in certain markets, including India.

The 128GB variants are no longer listed on Samsung Mobile’s India website, where only the 32GB and 64GB variants are available for purchase. This was first spotted by Maktechblog. Apart from the company website, the 128GB Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are no longer listed on leading Indian e-commerce websites like Flipkart, Snapdeal and Amazon India either. We also contacted offline retail store Croma’s Mumbai outlet, and the store too confirmed that the 128GB stocks of both the variants were not available.

One of the primary reasons for discontinuing the highest storage variant could be negligible demand. This could be attributed to the hefty price tag attached to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge — Rs 61,900 and Rs 70,900 respectively.
