Pre-order Samsung S7 from Telstra and get a free VR headset Featured


Telstra customers can pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge from 12.01am Friday 26 February. The pre-order carrot is a free Samsung Gear VR headset* valued at A$158.99 – while stocks last of course.

The S7 series is an evolution of the S6 – major changes include IP67 water resistance; 4GB RAM, 32GB storage, micro-SD support (up to 200GB); larger battery; and an improved ‘big pixel’ camera. The S7 has a 5.1” Quad HD (2560 x 1440) super AMOLED screen and the Edge version has a 5.5” Edge screen (where the edges wrap around ‘edge’ and are used for additional notifications).

iTWire has a first look article here and will be covering the Australian launch on 3 March.

The S7 series are amongst the first smartphones in Australia to support Category 9 LTE download speeds and next-generation voice calling LTE (VoLTE). This means that Telstra customers can access speeds of up to 450Mbps on its 4GX network (where available), and high-definition calling and faster call setup times with VoLTE.

Both smartphones are available on a range of standalone Go Mobile and Go Business Mobile plans as well as a value package that bundles a Galaxy S7 with a new Samsung Tab A tablet for $99 per month on a Go Mobile Plan.

Telstra’s pre-order webpage is here.

* The Gear VR headset powered by Oculus uses the Super AMOLED display of the Galaxy S6/Edge/Edge+, Note 5 or S7/Edge. With VR apps and content, it offers a wide field of view, precise head-tracking via an accelerometer, Gyro Sensor, Proximity Sensor and uses the Galaxy’s processing power for very low latency to help bring reality to the virtual world. It is great for VR games and is increasingly used for travel marketing. Facebook has announced Gear VR support too.
