Samsung Galaxy Note 7: Optus declares contract pricing
Optus has joined the other big telcos in announcing its pre-order Samsung Galaxy Note 7 pricing.
Like its subsidiary Virgin Mobile, Optus has opted to include a pricing tier with zero handset repayments for the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7. That’s the good news if you don’t like handset repayments, but the bad news is that it still reflects the Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s $1349 asking price, because the relevant option is the top tier My Plan Plus $120 plan. As the name suggests, you’ll pay $120 per month for the life of the plan with plenty of inclusions, but no handset repayments.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is Samsung’s latest premium handset device, taking a fair amount of inspiration from the existing Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge lines when it comes to features like its camera, its waterproofing and the curved edges of the Note 7’s 5.7 inch display.
Vodafone was the first Australian telco to reveal its Galaxy Note 7 pricing on the same day that Samsung announced its latest and largest phone. Earlier today Virgin Mobile revealed its pricing, followed closely by Telstra. Optus is the last of the "big" Telco players to announce Samsung Galaxy Note 7 pricing.

UPDATE: Following the chaos with flammable batteries, Samsung has recalled and discontinued the Galaxy Note 7 line. If you're interested in a far more reliable alternative, we deemed the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Samsung's best handset yet. You can compare plans for the Note 8 below:
