Virgin Mobile will open up Galaxy Note 8 pre-sales on 25 August

Alex Kidman 24 August 2017 NEWS


Virgin Mobile will offer the Note 8 at a variety of contract price points.

It's not just Samsung that will commence pre-sales for the freshly announced Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on 25 August (which, as a reminder, is tomorrow). Predictably, it will land with a range of telco partners to offer on contract terms. Virgin Mobile has indicated that it will commence its pre-sales from 12:01am on 25 August 2017 in Australia.

Here's how Virgin Mobile's full range of Galaxy Note 8 contract plans stack up at launch:

Virgin Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Plan Pricing

$80 Plan$80$19$99Unlimited16GB$2,376
$100 Plan$100$10$110Unlimited24GB$2,640

It's not entirely surprising, given the Galaxy Note 8's $1,499 price point, that there are no plan tiers where the Note 8 attracts no additional handset repayment. If you're keen, it's also worth noting that the deal for 16GB of data on the $80 plan only applies if you sign up before 30 August 2017.

Virgin Mobile will also offer as an option for Galaxy Note 8 buyers a Gear S3 Frontier smartwatch for an additional $15 per month, adding up to a minimum of $360 over the 24 months of the contract.
