Samsung Galaxy S24/S24 Plus/S24 Ultra Australian Availability

This one’s rather predictable, as pre-orders for the Galaxy S24 family starts today in Australia (January 18th 2024) with actual on-shelf availability from February 7th 2024.

They’ll be available from Samsung itself, Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and the usual run of open market providers.

As with other Samsung launches, select colours will only officially sell in Australia through Samsung itself; specifically Sapphire Blue, Jade Green and Sandstone Orange for the S24/S24+, while S24 Ultra buyers after Titanium Blue, Titanium Green or Titanium Orange will only find them through Samsung.

Pre-order bonuses differ depending on who you order though; generally gift cards from the open market sellers, discounts and trade-in bonuses through Vodafone, Galaxy Watch 6 (which I reviewed here) and Galaxy Buds2 Pro through Optus or a Tab S9 FE through Telstra. Samsung itself offers a memory upgrade, $100/$150 gift vouchers, extra Samsung care packages and trade-in deals, but then… well… Samsung’s naturally going to be the most keen to sell these particular new phones, now aren’t they?

Alex’s Thoughts (A bit different this time)


Typically, as with most other large phone launches I’d have a hands-on for you along with some informed commentary on my experiences — and indeed, Samsung Australia did offer me time to do so as well as some advance details about what’s special about these phones and their AI-led approach to everything from language translation to search and photography ahead of launch.

But I’ve not done that, for the very simple reason that the launch has happened while I’m travelling internationally, which meant that it just wasn’t possible.

I could opine on the broader functionality of the phones as per Samsung’s claims, but I’d much rather put those claims to the test with actual hardware and provide you with better informed commentary than that — so stay tuned for my review once I can get hold of a phone or two to test out.

However… I do know a journalist whose work I trust implicitly who has done just that! Head over to Pickr.com.au and check out Leigh Stark’s excellent work with hands-on coverage of the new range in Australia. Tell him I said hello while you’re there!
