We've seen a number of leaks in the run-up to the release of the Samsung Galaxy S22 range that's taken away any element of surprise from the official announcement. Despite the spoilers, the latest Samsung flagships have arrived and all the models are available to pre-order direct from Samsung or from major retailers and Australia’s leading telcos (see below for more details). These pre-orders are all getting your new phone shipped as soon as possible following the release date on Feb 25

Wherever you end up pre-ordering the latest Samsung flagship, there are bonuses to be had, but the freebies will differ according to the model you choose. That said, we believe the best offer is on Amazon Australia, where T3 readers can score an exclusive AU$50 discount on all three models using the checkout code S22FUT.

Pre-ordering from Amazon will even get you a free Echo Show 8 in the package, along with a gift from Samsung unique to each model (available via redemption). These gifts come as a choice from a range of items (opens in new tab) including the Galaxy Buds 2.

There's not a whole lot that's different between the S21 and the S22, but there are all-round performance improvements. Anyone keen on a stylus-toting phone will be thrilled with the S22 Ultra though. It brings all the improvements you can think of, including bigger battery, better processor and of course the S Pen. Use the code S22FUT to get AU$50 off the pre-order price of all three models in their various storage capacities and score some freebies too.

With your appetite whetted, here's how much the three models will cost you. 

The Samsung Galaxy S22 comes in with a starting price of AU$1,249 for the 128GB option. There's also a 256GB storage model that will set you back AU$1,349.

Taking it up a notch is the Galaxy S22 Plus that rings in at a base price of AU$1,549 for the 128GB model, while the 256GB edition is a touch more at AU$1,649.

Unlike the aforementioned two S22 models, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra comes in three different storage capacities – starting off at AU$1,849 for the 128GB option, AU$1,999 for 256GB and AU$2,149 if you need more storage at 512GB. 

As with all the previous Samsung flagships, they cost a fairly pretty penny, but the S22 range has the tech specs to back up the price, particularly the S22 Ultra. All three models get the Snapdragon chips in Australia.

While Amazon Australia might have the most tempting outright pre-order offer right now, below are the details on what you'll need to spend if you'd like to upgrade on a plan.

Telstra's plans for the S22 range start off at AU$55 a month that will get you 40GB of data. Depending on whether you prefer a 12-, 24- or 36-month plan, you'll be able to score a whole bunch of bonuses, no matter which model you pre-order.

What do you get when you pre-order any of the models from Telstra? You'll get a bonus Galaxy Tab A8 (valued at AU$529), 12 months Disney Plus from Telstra and a Samsung eVoucher to redeem for your choice of a travel, power or audio pack.
