Australia’s major telcos have revealed pricing for the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
Telstra was the first to announce it was selling the smartphone when it was announced earlier this week. The carrier is offering a wide range of plans starting at $79 per month for the S7 and $86 per month on Telstra’s $55 plan which includes 1GB data and $550 calls.
All of Telstra’s plans run for 24 months.
Optus’ plans start from $24 per month for the S7 and $31 for the S7 Edge on a $40 plan, which includes 500MB data and unlimited calls and text.
Optus’ deals are also on a 24-month contract.
Vodafone also has a wide range of plans, but is recommending the $7 per month plan for the S7 on a $70 plan for 24 months with 6GB of data. The same plan costs $20 per month for the S7 Edge.
Virgin’s cheapest plan starts at $60 per month for S7 and $65 per month for the S7 Edge. These plans include $300 of calls and text and 300MB of data.
Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and Virgin are all offering customers a Samsung VR headset for pre-ordering one of the smartphones.
Samsung will also sell the phone outright for $1149 for the S7 and $1249 for the S7 Edge.
This week at Mobile World Conference in Barcelona, Samsung revealed that the S7 and S7 Edge would be available from 11 March.
The devices are fitted with a 5.1-inch screen for the S7 and a 5.5-inch curved screen for the S7 Edge.
They’re powered by a Samsung Exynos 8 octacore 8890 processor and 4GB of RAM, and come with a 12MP camera.
Some of the new features include a waterproof design that can last for up to 30 minutes, expandable microSD and SIM card tray for up to 200GB of extra storage and a larger 3000mAh batter for the S7 and 3600mAh for the S7 Edge.
Both smartphones are available to pre-order from today.
