If you’ve been after a nice new Android device, Optus has a couple great deals on the OPPO Find X2 Lite and Samsung Galaxy A71 5G. The price of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has also been dropped, if you’re interested in a folding phone.

From now until the offer is withdrawn, you can get $100.12 off the 5G-capable OPPO Find X2 Lite, bringing the price down to $648.72 from $748.80. The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G has also been discounted, and is now $720, with $178.56 marked off the price. If you want something a little more flashy, Optus has dropped the price of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip — with it now priced at $1,998.72, down from $2,198.88, with $200 taken off total price.

These phones are great for different reasons. If you’re after a cheap phone with 5G compatibility, then the OPPO Find X2 Lite is a great option as a reliable phone with a lot to offer. The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G is another affordable way to get onboard with 5G, which is part of Samsung’s more affordable range of Galaxy A series phones. The Galaxy Z Flip on the other hand is great if you’re looking for a folding smart phone, though it is still quite expensive.

The Galaxy Z Flip price drop isn’t a sale, with the price staying the same going forward, however both the OPPO Find X2 Lite and the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G deals are only valid until withdrawn.

How can I get these offers?

These discounts are applied to the device cost over 24 or 36-month payment period, so you’re free to bundle with your choice of Optus postpaid plan.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Optus price drop

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is a flip phone with a unique spin to the name. Instead of folding from the side like most of its contemporaries, the Z Flip hinges vertically, like the popular Motorola Razr phones from over a decade ago. Over the past year, folding smartphones have seen a wide resurgence, and this price drop might make you think about picking one up.

The phone is quite nice as far as specs go, and a folding phone would be a nice piece of kit on its own. It’s got two 12MP cameras on the back (wide and ultrawide) and one 10MP selfie camera. Inbuilt is a Snapdragon 855+ processor, and an Adreno 640 GPU, along with a 3,300mAh battery. It’s available in Mirror Purple from Optus with 256GB of storage capacity.

Data sharing is also available if you have more than one eligible plans on the same account, which is great for families.

For a limited time, postpaid users who buy a new 5G phone through Optus can also get double their allocated data for no extra cost on Medium or above postpaid plans, or $10 for 60GB extra data on the Small plan. This free data bonus is available for 12 months, and the offer is valid until withdrawn.

If prepaid is more your style, Optus has you covered, with plans starting at $30 for 35GB of data on a 28-day expiry, and go up to $180 for 100GB of data over a 365-day expiry period, with recharges varying. Prepaid users also get access to a data bank, which can store up to 200GB of their data, provided they recharge before the expiration date.
