Virgin Mobile will also start Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ pre-orders Friday 31 March

Hot on the heels of its parent brand Optus, Virgin Mobile has confirmed that it will be carrying the new Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ as well, with pre-orders also going live tomorrow morning at 12.01am Friday 31 March 2017.

Pricing for the Galaxy S8 will start at $70 per month, and the Galaxy S8+ will start at $75 per month, with the full details of the plans on offer available below (click for the full size version):

Like Optus customers, Virgin customers will score a bonus Gear VR headset if they pre-order before 27 April 2017. Those who pre-order early, before 18 April, will receive their handset early, starting from 21 April.

Velocity frequent flier members can take 10% off plan costs when signing up to a $50 or above phone or 12-month SIM plan as well, which could bring down the cost of your new Galaxy S8 or S8+ on Virgin by as much as $10 each month.

Pre-order will be live on the website tomorrow morning.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.
