Want to check out a Samsung Galaxy S9 before you buy? Head to your Telstra store

If you’re thinking about buying from Samsung’s newly announced Galaxy S9 range, Telstra is giving you the opportunity to try the phone in store this week before the retail launch to help make up your mind.

Even if you’re not planning on buying through Telstra, you can take advantage of this offer and head into most Telstra stores this week to get some hands-on time with Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+. Telstra is hoping would-be customers will sign up with the carrier, though, offering a number of pre-order inclusions.

Customers who pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ from Telstra before 23:59 AEDT March 15th 2018 will receive a bonus Samsung Wireless Charger Convertible (RRP $119) and Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) valued at $456. The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will both be configured for Telstra Messaging (which brings together advanced messaging features like visual voicemail, group chat and file sharing all into one inbox), and will also support the carrier’s Wi-Fi Calling service.

For those who are more likely to buy from another carrier, check out our Samsung Galaxy S9 Buyers Guide, and keep an eye out for an in-depth plan comparison coming up soon.

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.
