If you’ve been looking to buy a 5G Samsung phone, then Telstra has a great deal for you. With two Samsung Galaxy S20 devices on sale, this might be an offer too good to miss, especially if you’re after a 5G-compatible phone.

Telstra is offering up to $240 off the device price of the 128GB Samsung Galaxy S20 5G and 128GB Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G, with this offer expiring on September 28, 2020. If you’re looking for your next handset, you might want to get in quick with several models already out of stock.

How can I get this offer?

To access these savings, you’ll need to sign up on the Medium postpaid plan bundled with either the 128GB Samsung Galaxy S20 50 or 128GB Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G on a 24-month plan. The discount is in the form of a $10 credit each month over the 24-month payment period, with credit applied on the second bill and onwards, terms apply. The minimum costs for these handsets are as follows:

Samsung Galaxy S20 5G

  • $62.45 per month Samsung Galaxy S20 5G + $65 per month Medium plan – $10 monthly credit = minimum cost $2,769 over 24 months

Should I pick up the S20 5G or the S20+ 5G?

Both of these phones are brilliant additions to Samsung’s lineup of handsets as part of the Galaxy S20 series. The S20 5G is the base model in this range, comparable to Apple’s iPhone 11, which is pretty much ideal for casual consumers after a high-end phone, whereas the S20+ 5G is a slightly more tuned-up version of the same device. Both phones may have 5G, but there are some differences between them.

The S20 5G has five cameras in total — three on the back (12MP wide, 64MP telephoto and 12MP ultrawide), and two on the front (10MP wide). It has a 6.2 inch display with an 89.5% screen-to-body ratio, a Mongoose M5 processor inbuilt with a Mali-G77 MP11 GPU, and a 4,000mAh battery.

The S20+ 5G on the other hand is a more powerful version of the S20 5G. It’s noticeably bigger at 6.7 inches, with a 90.5% screen-to-body ratio, with the same processor and GPU as the S20 5G. The cameras are also the same as the base model, although there is an additional 0.3MP depth camera on the back. The battery is also noticeably bigger at 4,500mAh. It’s available in Cosmic Grey and Cosmic Black (out of stock) from Telstra.

Both of these phones are 5G capable, which might be a drawcard considering the constantly expanding 5G networks and improved technologies. Telstra has been leading the way with the roll out of its 5G network, and on Medium, Large and Extra Large phone plans, you can access the 5G network at no additional cost.
