Happy Note Day, everyone!
Samsung just unleashed the Note 10 on the world, including a fancy 5G version.
Optus will be stocking some of the devices, and you can see everything the telco has on offer right here.
After what feels like 84 years of leaks and rumours, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 has finally been officially revealed. There's not only one device in the Note lineup but three, and one of them is 5G enabled. Here's everything you need to know, including the price and when you can get a Note 10 in Australia.Read more
Much like Telstra, Optus will only be offering the the Note+ and Note+ 5G models.
If you’d like a regular Note 10 on a plan, you can get one through Woolworth’s Mobile or Vodafone.
However, it’s worth noting that although the 5G model can be pre-ordered now, it won’t ship until September 20, which is almost a month later than the Note+.
Of course, the exciting news here is that we now have a date attached to Optus’ proper 5G rollout. Until now only 100 test sites have been live, with the telco stating that it would be more widely available sometime in 2019.
It looks like the Note 10 release isn't the only telco-related news today. Optus just announced its Hero Plans for the series... including the 5G Model.Read more
The Note 10+ comes with Samsung’s new Exynos 9825 processor, 256GB RAM and 12GB storage. The 4,300mAH battery comes with fast-chare and Wireless PowerShare.
The Note 10+ has a quad rear camera setup with 12MP telephoto, 12MP wide-angle and 16MP ultra-wide lenses. The fourth lens is a VGA 3D Depth Vision Camera that is capable of 3D scanning and AR doodling.
At the front of the device you’ll find a 10MP selfie cam built into the Infinity-0 display as well as an almost bezel-less design, providing a massive screen-to-body ratio.
The S Pen has also gotten a few upgrades, including handwriting to text conversion and Air Gestures.
As for the 5G model, you get everything you see above, but with 512GB storage and an internal 5G modem.
And here are the plans!
Optus Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ (256GB) plans
The cheapest plan here come is at $105 a month over 24-months, which $45 for the plan and $60 for the handset repayments.
However, it only comes with 4GB data, so we recommend spending the extra $10 a month to upgrade to 60GB.
Optus Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G (512GB) plans
Sadly we don’t have a shiny widget for the 5G plans, probably because of the delayed release. However, you can still pre-order one now over on the Optus website.
You’ll find that they’re all $10 more expensive a month compared to their regular Note 10+ counterparts. This means that the cheapest is $125 a month across 24-months for 4GB of data. Again, we recommend bumping that up, especially if you’re someone who wants to smash those fast 5G speeds.
Anyone who pre-orders one of the new Note 10 devices between 9am AEST on August 8 and 11:59pm AEST August 22 will also get a free pair of Samsung’s newly-announced AKG Wireless Headphones, which have an RRP of $499.
