After months of hype, Google’s premium Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones are now official. The big news is that both phones will now be available from Optus and Vodafone, in addition to just Telstra – so Australian buyers now have more options that ever for picking up Google’s flagship devices.

With pre-orders beginning 10 October, and the Pixel hitting stores from November onwards, Google fans have a lot to consider before committing to a plan and provider. Read on to find out which plans are available with the Google Pixel 3, what you’ll pay, and all the offers you’ll find from each telco – or jump ahead to your preferred provider with the links below.

To give you an idea of what to expect on a Telstra plan, the below table outlines the telco’s Small through to Unlimited plans.

Like Optus, Telstra offers both traditional two-year plans, and a two-year lease deal. Leasing is around $10 per month cheaper, but again, you won’t own your phone at the end of the 24-month agreement. You can, however, upgrade after 12 months, but you’ll need to pay Telstra $99 and return your Pixel in good working order.

Both new Pixels are compatible with Telstra Messaging, a message platform that allows for group chat, file transfers and more. Telstra customers who purchase or order their Pixel 3 before 25 December will also receive a bonus Google Home Mini, valued at $79.

As Vodafone is the only major telco to separate phone repayment from your mobile plan, you have a little more flexibility when it comes to picking your payment term. The Pixel 3 will be available on interest-free payment plans of either 12 months, 24 months, or 36 months; the total cost of the device is the same no matter which option you pick, but your monthly payment will vary.
