The Galaxy Note 10 is right around the corner, with Samsung set to unveil its big new phone on August 8. However, if you're not keen on waiting, now might be a good time to pull a trigger on a Galaxy S10 or even a Note 9. Telstra and Optus are both running some great Samsung-centric deals across Galaxy devices right now. Here are some of our favourites.
The ninth iteration of Samsung's popular stylus-equipped phablet - confusingly named the Galaxy Note 10 - has been spotted in the wild. While it's not expected to launch until August, performance benchmarks are already popping up online. The numbers that this thing is throwing out suggest it will be the most powerful Android phone yet. Here are the details!
Save $288 on the Galaxy S10 range with Telstra
Telstra has slashed $288 off the price of the entire Galaxy S10 family, bringing plan prices down by $12 per month on a 24-month term.
Better yet, if you're picking up the Galaxy S10e online, Telstra will also throw in a bonus pair of JBL Duet wireless noise-cancelling headphones valued at $349. Galaxy S10e plans start at $88 per month with 15GB per month, which isn't too bad if you need a new pair of cans.
Here are Telstra plans for the Galaxy S10 family:
Telstra hasn't specified an end-date on these promos.
Save $350 on the Galaxy Note 9 with Woolworths Mobile
If you want a new Note now and don't want to wait to see what the Note 10 has in store, Woolworths Mobile is currently discounting the huge 512GB Note 9 by $350 across the life of your contract. This works out to be a $14.59 per month discount every month on a 24-month repayment plan. Here are Woolworths Mobile's plans for the Note 9:
These plans start at $80.36 per month with 5GB, but the $90.36 per month plan with 12GB or $100.36 per month plan with 40GB are probably a better option.
This offer is available until July 31.
15% off high-end Galaxy S10 plans with Optus
Optus is currently offering a 15% discount on its top-end plan, bringing it down from $125 per month to $106.25 per month, excluding handset repayment fees, which are pretty small.
The plan includes 200GB data, unlimited talk and text, unlimited standard international talk and text to 35 countries, and 4GB of roaming data for "Zone 1" destinations. Zone 1 includes most countries across the USA, Europe, and Asia Pacific.
