With the killer specs and features of the Samsung Galaxy S5, millions of fans are eagerly waiting to get this latest phone. Here is a list of carriers having the Samsung Galaxy S5 in Australia.

Virgin Mobile

Virgin Mobile will be carrying the Samsung Galaxy S5 but there are no information about its pricing and release date just yet. Apart from the Samsung flagship, Virgin Mobile will also announce the availability of the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit under its name.

Optus

Optus will be carrying the Samsung Galaxy S5 but similar to Virgin Mobile, there is no pricing and release date just yet. Interested customers can register here for more details.

Telstra

"Telstra is excited about the new Samsung Galaxy S5, which was launched in Barcelona today. We can confirm that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be available for Telstra customers when it is released in Australia." Customers can register here.

Vodafone

Vodafone will also be carrying the Samsung Galaxy S5 and customers interested can head over to its web site to enter their details.

All four major carriers in Australia will offer the Samsung Galaxy S5 and we expect to see competition in plans and pricing.
