It won't be a surprise if Airtel begins taking orders for Galaxy S6 in March, as it adopted similar strategy when iPhone 6 was released in 2014. A year before that too it had sold the iPhone 5S (and 5C) in its store with some tantalising internet-data pack vouchers.

In USA too, three network carriers AT & T, Sprint and T-Mobile have confirmed the sale of Galaxy S6. Sprint and AT & T have even started inviting subscribers to register for new Samsung flagship smartphone.
