Telstra customers can pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge now (from Friday 26 February from 12:01am). Customers pre-ordering these phones will receive a free Samsung Gear VR, but you better be quick, with the disclaimer of “while stocks last”. There’s no stated number of GearVRs that are available, but I’d expect these to go quickly.
Of course the Samsung Galaxy S7 adds SD storage expansion as well as water and dust resistance. Perhaps even more importantly, Samsung’s latest flagship also support category 9 LTE download speeds and next-generation voice calling (voice over LTE). This means speeds of up to 450Mbps on Telstra’s 4GX network in 4GX areas, and high-definition calling and faster call setup times with VoLTE.
Both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are available individual plans, but for those also looking for a tablet solution, there are tablet bundle’s available.

Naturally Optus is offering the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge as well. Their pre-order page is now live and Optus are also offering the free GearVR as long as you sign up to a 24 month My Plus Plan between 26/02 – 10/03 (while stocks last).
While Optus have pre-order page on their website (and big promotion on their home page for the S7), their pre-order button strangely takes you to the ‘chat with us now’ rather than actually pre-order the phone(s) online.
