Samsung's new Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 cost a pretty penny but how much do they cost through Optus. Are you really going to save money on a plan vs going outright? Are there are any good preorder bonuses going around? Here's what you need to know.
Like Telstra, Optus are only ranging the 5G versions of both devices. If you were hoping to save a few bucks by sticking with 4G, you're out of luck.
In Australia, retail pricing for the 5G Samsung Galaxy Note 20 starts at AU$1649. Buying a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G is slightly pricier at a starting price of AU$1999. Buying either of these devices through Optus means repaying that amount in monthly installments PLUS the cost of your mobile plan.
Is there a preorder bonus?
Yes. While Optus themselves aren't doing any bespoke promotions around preorders signing up for either a Galaxy Note 20 or Galaxy Note 20 Ultra through the telco will net you either a set of Galaxy Buds+ or Galaxy Buds Live depending on which model you go for.
