Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge: Australian Pricing, Dates

Tonight’s the night. Samsung has officially introduced its long-awaited Galaxy Note 4 smartphone, the novel Galaxy Note Edge, and a swathe of wearables. Here’s how much they all cost and when you can get them in Australia.

We’re at the local launch now, but we know you want to skip straight to the important info, so no mucking around. Australian pricing for the Note 4, one of the biggest smartphone announcements of the year — literally — is now confirmed. We also have pricing for the Note Edge, and Samsung’s new wearables including Gear S, Gear Circle, and Gear VR.

Here it all is:

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will go on sale on October 29 in Australia, from Samsung’s Experience Store and all the usual telcos, for a RRP of $949. There’ll be a pre-sale from October 15.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, the curved-screen premium handset, will go on sale at “leading retailers” again — as well as directly through Samsung at its Experience Stores — for a $1249 RRP.

The Samsung Gear VR, which is a weird virtual reality headset a la Oculus Rift, will go on sale through Samsung and partners alike in November for $249. At the moment, there’s no specific release date.

On the two other Samsung wearables being launched today, here are the details. The Gear S is Samsung’s curved screen watch running Tizen (not Android Wear), and it’ll be out in November for $449. The Gear Circle, a wraparound stereo Bluetooth headset, will be out at the same time for $179.
