Samsung Galaxy Note 7: Telstra unveils pricing

Alex Kidman 5 August 2016


If you’re keen on the super-sized Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on contract with Telstra, this is what you’ll pay.

Premium phones attract premium prices, and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 is no exception, with an outright asking price of $1349. Early pre-orders do score a 256GB microSD memory card, but that’s still a lot of cold hard cash to lay down. For such a premium device, a contract over two years can make a lot of sense.

Vodafone was the first Australian carrier to announce its Galaxy Note 7 pricing, followed by Virgin Mobile earlier today. Telstra’s just announced what it will charge for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on a two year contract term.

There’s no tier of Telstra’s contract plans which right now offers the phone for free, although it’s curiously absent from its page for its $195 "Premium" phone plan at the moment, and may appear there as a no-handset-repayment option at some point. You do still get an advantage in terms of the overall handset repayment cost you bear relative to the asking price for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

As more carriers reveal their pricing, we’ll get a better picture of whether you’re actually better off buying outright, which brings with it the flexibility to choose plan levels that suit you, change carriers at will or sell off the Note 7 if you find it’s not a good match for you, or opt for a contract plan.
