Samsung isn’t going to let you be blinded by news of HTC One M9 availability: they have announced the pre-order and general availability dates for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge this morning.

Starting tomorrow, you will be able to place your pre-order for either of Samsung’s newest additions to the Galaxy S line, with nationwide availability starting on April 10th.

The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will both be available on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon Wireless. Boost Mobile, Cricket Wireless and MetroPCS will just be offering the Galaxy S6.

Beyond the carrier stores you will also be able to pick up either phone from Best Buy, Amazon, Costco, Sam’s Club, Target or Walmart. Check with your specific retailer before heading out to get that pre-order in though. Rumor has it Best Buy may have a “free device” (a wireless charger perhaps?) associated with S6 pre-orders tomorrow, but we haven’t been able to obtain official confirmation of that.

So are any of you ready to pre-order tomorrow or are you waiting to get your hands on them to see if that Galaxy S6 edge is worth the roughly $100 price premium?
