Vodafone opens up pre-registration for the Galaxy Note 9

Posted: 19 July 2018 8:58 am

Vodafone's taking expressions of interest in the Galaxy Note 9 weeks ahead of its local launch.

Usually when a new phone is announced, carriers fall all over themselves to announce their pre-order deals, but only once they're actually allowed to by the phone's manufacturer. It's a delicate balancing act of managing stock, expectations and hype while not losing out to a rival network.

Except when it isn't. As spotted by Ausdroid, Vodafone has, rather surprisingly, set up a site where you can pre-register your interest in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9, some weeks ahead of its New York launch on 10 August 2018.

Mind you, that's all you can do. Essentially, you just leave Vodafone a note with your email address saying you're keen.

It's not leaking specifications (not that these are hard to find) or indeed contract details for that matter. Vodafone being the company that it is, we can expect it to offer the Note 9 on its usual "uncoupled" contract model where the phone and plan are separate entities, rather than the bundled approach of rivals Telstra and Optus.

If nothing else, it does confirm that the Galaxy Note 9 will be coming to Vodafone. The early announcement does also lend credence to the claims that Samsung won't delay in bringing the Note 9 to market rapidly, given that Vodafone seems so keen to ride the hype wave early.
