Samsung, after what has been a very long build up, has released their Galaxy Note 10 to the world and once again they seem to have hit the ball out of the park with a great looking device. Samsung is coordinating pre-orders and sales with the announcement of pre-orders going live today ahead of going on-sale officially in Australia on August 23rd.

Samsung has announced outright pricing for the new handset with the Note 10 model priced at $1,499 and for the Note 10+ model $1,699. The Galaxy Note10+ 5G will set you back $1,999 unsurprisingly with 5G devices adding a premium onto the pricing at this stage — plus it does have 500GB of storage as opposed to 256GB in the other versions.

The Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy Note 10+ will be available in Aura Glow, Aura White and Aura Black starting from August 23rd.

Customers in Australia who pre-order the Galaxy Note 10, Note 10+ or Note 10+ 5G from participating retailers, will receive a bonus pair of AKG Wireless Headphones (N700NCM2) valued at RRP$499. The pre-order period runs from 09.00, August 8 to 23.59, August 22, with an on-sale date of August 23, 2019.

Those who prefer to purchase a phone from a carrier, and with the outright prices for smartphones these days it may be a very popular option, we have all the offers below:

Those who purchase the Galaxy Note 10+ or Note 10+ 5G during the pre-order period of August 8 to September 22 will receive a bonus AKG N700NC wireless headphones valued at $499.

It seems none of the carrier models are dual/hybrid sim. Have to save up my pennies to pay for one outright from Samsung. Not happy

Woolworths Mobile seems to list the Note 10 as dual Sim but the Note 10+ as just hybrid Sim. Generally, Woolworths Mobile seems to offer dual Sim when possible.

Apart from Telstra’s launch offer of a 5G device for 4G price, they are ripping consumers off by charging full retail price for a Telstra gimped version of the phone. Vodafone do exactly the same thing, full retail price for a Vodafone gimped version of the phone. Buy a phone through either of these Telco’s and you’ll receive (or won’t receive) software & security updates as and when they wish.

If they aren’t subsidising the phone cost then they should be supplying a full retail non-gimped version of the handsets. Probably something the ACCC needs to investigate.

1 – Where does ANY legislation state that to charge a RRP on a product, you cannot have your own version of?? The ACCC has to have some evidence of an organisation not complying with legislation or using existing legislation in a way that damages the consumer to look at before they can take any action. They can’t just investigate / charge companies because some-one wants them to. 2 – There are GOOD reasons for companies to have their own versions… in many cases network optimisations need to occur for them to be able to offer differentiation of service.

If you are misleading customers into thinking that your version of a product is the same as the manufacturer’s direct version of a product, then the ACCC would be very interested. The non-gimped Samsung direct handset works exactly the same on the Telstra & Vodafone network as the Telco’s respective gimped handsets. Maybe better since the non-gimped handset could get access to software updates quicker as long as Samsung hasn’t done another dodgy deal to delay updates for it’s directly sold handsets until TEL decides customers can have an update. You mention ‘Interest Free’ – presumably these words have never… Read more »
