This morning, many people in Australia are waking up to news from overnight of the launch of two of the bigger high-end phones this year with both Samsung and LG announcing the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge and the G5. The biggest question of course is where can I get them. Optus has this morning announced they will be carrying all these phones.
With a few weeks to go till the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge launch in Australia on March 11th, and LG still not ready to announce their pricing, it’s a matter of wait and see on specific plans. Optus has confirmed that they will be carrying all three phones when they launch, but beyond that, Optus isn’t ready to talk pricing or plans. Samsung is selling the Galaxy S7 outright for $1,149 RRP while the curvier brother, the Galaxy S7 Edge will sell for $1,249 RRP.
We’ll know more when Samsung and LG’s respective Australian arms announce carrier partnerships closer to launch, but if you’re an Optus (or Telstra) customer, the good news is that you’ll definitely have some options when it comes time to renew that phone contract.
