Optus has released Australian prices, plans and release dates for Samsung’s Galaxy S9 smartphone range.
You can preorder the phones tonight, at 12.01am on February 27. Any preorders taken before March 15 will also come with a $119 Samsung fast charge wireless pad for free.
The phones themselves aren’t so cheap. A Galaxy S9 64GB on a 24-month My Plan Flex will set you back $85 a month.
Outright, the S9 will be available in Australia for $1,199 (64GB) and $1,349 (256GB). The S9+ will be available in Australia for $1,349 (64GB) and $1,499 (256GB).
Telstra is making the same offer of a free wireless charger, plus a Samsung Galaxy Tab A.
Its $99, two-year Hero Plan includes 30GB of monthly data. Consumers also get a 12-month subscription to Foxtel Now with 1 Starter Pack, while business customers get access to Microsoft Office apps on up to 5 compatible devices.
All phones will arrive in Australia on March 16. If you plump for the 64GB models, they’ll come in three colours – Midnight Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple.
But if you shift up to the 256GB models, you’ll have to hit up the Samsung Online and Samsung Retail stores if you want a colour other than black.
The phones were unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this morning. Here’s all you need to know about Samsung’s reply to the iPhone X.
