STUNNING INFINITY DISPLAY

The revolutionary design of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ begins from the inside out. We rethought every part of the phone's layout to break through the confines of the smartphone screen. So all you see is pure content and a discreet bezel. It's the biggest, most immersive screen on a mobile device of this size. It's also easy to hold in one hand.

Capture life as it happens with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ cameras. The front camera has been improved with Smart Auto Focus so you'll be able to take crisp, clear selfies in low light. The Smart Auto Focus tracks faces, so everyone in the shot will be in focus and the bright lens lets in more light in low light conditions.

Get a great deal on Spotify Premium when you buy a mobile plan or pack.

Spark terms and charges apply. Saving spread over 24 months. Full phone cost must be repaid if exit before 24 months. If you move to a plan below $29.99/mth, monthly RRP savings will cease. Offer ends 20 November 2017.

  1. The Spotify service which Spark customers on eligible Spark mobile plans have access to, is Spotify Premium.
  2. Joined Spark or switched to a new Value Pack or Mobile Postpaid plan from 11/09/2017? The following terms apply:

      Terms for Prepaid customers

    1. 4 Weekly Spotify Premium with 50% discount (4 Weekly Half Price Spotify) is available on Spark Rollover Prepaid Value Packs and Spark Rollover Data Lover Packs.
    2. The charge for 4 Weekly Half Price Spotify is $6.90, which is based on average annualised cost of Spotify Premium monthly subscription (RRP $14.99 per month) recalculated over a 28 day period.
    3. $6.90 will be debited from your top up credit when you purchase the Spotify Extra, and then subsequently every 4 weeks on the renewal date, while you’re on an eligible Spark Prepaid Pack.
    4. For new customers, the first $6.90 charge will cover the 28 day period from the date you activate your subscription.
    5. If you’re new to Spotify with Spark, once you purchase the 4 Weekly Half Price Spotify, you will need to activate your Spotify subscription. If you don’t activate your Spotify subscription within 30 days from purchasing 4 Weekly Half Price Spotify, your 4 Weekly Half Price Spotify will be cancelled, and you’ll need to purchase it again. This is done to prevent you from incurring additional Spotify charges.
    6. Half Price Spotify can be transferred between other Spark plans or packs which also include Half Price Spotify. See below for details.
    7. You can cancel your Spark Spotify subscription at any time by logging into MySpark dashboard or the Spark app and turning off the renewal of your Spotify subscription. Spotify Premium will remain available to you until your subscription expires, at which stage it will change to Spotify Standard.
    8. Terms for Prepaid customers

    9. Free Spotify Premium is available on Consumer Mobile Pay Monthly Rollover plans $29.99 and above, and Business mobile plans $35.85 and above (excludes Sharer Plans). Spark Digital customers may register for Spotify Premium if they are on an eligible Spark Pay Monthly plan.
    10. Monthly Spotify Premium with 50% discount (Monthly Half Price Spotify) is available on $29.99 Spark Sharer plan.
    11. The charge for Monthly Spotify Premium with 50% discount is $7.49.
    12. $7.49 will be charged to your Spark account when you purchase the Spotify Extra, and then subsequently every month on the renewal date, while you’re on an eligible Spark Pay Monthly Plan.
    13. For new customers, the first $7.49 charge will cover the one month period from the date you activate your subscription.
    14. If you’re new to Spotify with Spark, once you purchase the Monthly Half Price Spotify, you will need to acativate your Spotify subscription. If you don’t activate your Spotify subscription within 30 days from purchasing Half Price Spotify, your Half Price Spotify will be cancelled, and you’ll need to purchase it again. This is done to prevent you from incurring additional Spotify charges.
    15. Existing Pay Monthly customers with Half Price Spotify who change to an eligible Pay Monthly plan or an eligible Prepaid Pack may carry over their Spotify subscription. Relevant Pay Monthly or Prepaid charges for Spotify apply.
    16. You can cancel your Spark Spotify subscription at any time by logging into MySpark dashboard or the Spark app and turning off the renewal of your Spotify subscription. Spotify Premium will remain available to you until your subscription expires, at which stage it will change to Spotify Standard.

      3. Spark Digital customers may register for Spotify Premium if they are on an eligible Spark Pay Monthly plan.
    2. If you move to a new Spark Rollover plan your Spotify entitlement will reflect the Spotify offer of the new plan. For example, if you move to the new Rollover $39.99 plan, Spotify Premium will not be included with your plan and you will need to buy the Spotify Extra, i.e., 50% off Spotify Premium, if you want to continue your Spotify Premium subscription through Spark.
    3. If you cancel your pre-11/09/2017 pack or plan, or change to a new Rollover plan or pack after 11 September 2017, you will not be able to later change back to your pre-11/09/2017 plan or pack. This also means you will not be able to return to any pre-11/09/2017 Spark Spotify offer.
  4. Terms for all customers

  5. In order to use and access the Spotify Premium service, you will need to register with Spotify directly and accept Spotify Terms and Conditions of the Spotify service, including age restrictions.

  8. Offer includes Spotify Premium single account only, and excludes Spotify Premium for Family, Spotify Student and any other promotional offers.
  9. If you are changing your Spark mobile plan or Prepaid Pack you may no longer be eligible to have Free Spotify Premium or Spotify Premium with 50% Discount included in your plan or pack.

  11. Spark cannot guarantee that Spotify will be compatible with all devices and you are advised to check your device’s compatibility with Spotify if you are unsure.
