Good news everyone — Samsung's Galaxy S24 series has now officially released, meaning you can simply walk into a store and pick up one of the South Korean company's new flagship devices right now.
Unfortunately, that also means that most of the Galaxy S24's pre-order bonuses have evaporated. But don't worry — we're here to help you get a new Samsung Galaxy S24 smartphone at the best price possible.
To make things easier for you, we've compiled all the best plans and offers which are currently available, along with product details and comprehensive pricing information.
So whether you've got the cash to pay for it upfront, or would rather pay it off gradually on a plan, you'll find the best Galaxy S24 plans and deals in Australia below.
Samsung Galaxy S24: Pricing
As we've come to expect from Samsung, the new flagship handset lineup consists of three tiers offered with varying amounts of storage. It's worth noting that Samsung has done away with 128GB variants this year, with 256GB being the minimum amount of storage across the whole S24 range.
Pricing for the entry-level Galaxy S24 starts at AU$1,399 for the 256GB option, increasing to AU$1,599 for the 512GB version.
Following hot on its heels is the larger Galaxy S24 Plus, which starts at AU$1,699 for the 256GB variant, and peaks at AU$1,899 for the 512GB option.
Lastly, we have Samsung's most premium offering, the Galaxy S24 Ultra. This model starts at AU$2,199 for the 256GB variant (a significant jump up from last's equivalent, which started at AU$1,949), followed by a 512GB option priced at AU$2,399, and a 1TB offering for a whopping AU$2,799.
Luckily, you also have the option of picking up an S24 handset via one of Australia's major telcos, with Telstra, Optus and Vodafone letting customers pay the handset off over 12, 24 or 36 monthly repayments, so long as you stay connected to one of their plans during that time.

Samsung Galaxy S24: What's new?
At first glance, Samsung's Galaxy S24 range looks near identical to last year's equivalent models. However, keen-eyed observers will spot a number of subtle design differences — particularly on the S24 Ultra, which sports thinner bezels, a flatter display and a new titanium frame.
Additionally, the S24 series will boast Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, bringing an uptick in performance and power efficiency.
Of course, the big drawcard for this year's Galaxy lineup is its focus on AI features, which bring the S24's software-based abilities closer to that of Google's Pixel series smartphones.
That means features like live translation of both speech and text, advanced AI generative editing tools for photography via Samsung's new ProVisual Engine, Chat Assist, Circle to Search and much more.
And, despite a downgrade from 10x to 5x optical zoom, Samsung promises improved clarity in zoomed in photos thanks to the power of AI.
