Good news everyone! Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ pre-orders are now live, so you can start throwing your hard-earned dollarydoos at Samsung. Well, if you don’t want to wait for Ausdroid’s review, that is.
While the phones go on sale on April 28, customers who pre-order could receive their device as early as April 21, which is a nice incentive if you want to be the first to get your filthy paws on Samsung’s latest and greatest.
If you want the phones outright, the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 will set you back $1,199, while the larger Galaxy S8+ will cost a little more, and is priced at $1,349. You’ll be able to pre-order direct from Samsung, or through JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman.
If you want a S8 or S8+ on a contract, Telstra, Optus, Virgin, Vodafone, and Woolworths Mobile are all ranging the phones.
We’ve got every single Australian S8 and S8+ plan below, but here are a few that have caught our eye:
Surprisingly, Woolworths Mobile has one of the best “affordable” Galaxy S8 plans around. $65 per month or $69 per month will get you the S8 or S8+, respectively, unlimited talk and text, and 4GB of data. This deal’s only available until April 4, so you’ll need to get in early if you’re after this one.
When it comes to big data, Virgin will hook you up with 20GB a month and a new handset for either $105 or $110 depending on whether you want the S8 or the S8+. And if you’re a Velocity Frequent Flyer member, you can save an extra 10% on your bill.
Virgin’s also the clear bang-for-buck winner when it comes to what we’d call midrange plans. $86 or $91 per month gets you 8GB of data, and unlimited talk and text. And once again, you can get 10% off if you’re a Velocity Frequent Flyer. Vodafone’s 8GB plans aren’t bad either – especially if you want $5 per day roaming – but Virgin’s are ever so slightly cheaper.
Anyway, here are the rest:
