The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be available for pre-order tomorrow (March 31) and the Australian carriers have already released details about the new plans for the new device.

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ were unveiled at the Lincoln Centre in New York boasting larger Infinity Displays, the fastest processor on a smartphone and an all-new intelligent user interface called Bixby.

And the new devices are even powerful enough to connect to monitor and keyboard and run like a desktop computer with a new feature called Samsung DeX.

Telstra, Optus and Virgin Mobile have revealed their plans for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

Vodafone is expected to release its plans tomorrow.
