This week’s bargain phones: Cheap Nokia deals and sizeable savings on the Huawei P20 Pro
New Year, new smartphone deals to snap up.
What better way to kick off the New Year than with a hot deal on a brand new phone? Forget paying full price; we've tracked down the best deals on some of the most popular smartphones to help you upgrade your life without destroying your bank account.
By comparing outright pricing from a range of Aussie smartphone retailers, we've rounded up the cheapest options as of 2 January 2019. Bear in mind that pricing and availability can fluctuate without warning, so be sure to confirm the deals are still valid before checking out.
After dominating the pre-smartphone industry back in the 90s and early 2000s, Nokia faded into obscurity during the rise of the iPhone and its Android-powered counterparts. Only recently has the iconic brand staged a comeback by releasing a new line of Android smartphones capable of competing against the best in the business.
The Nokia 8 is a strong example of how far the reborn Nokia has come. While it doesn't do anything drastically new to distinguish itself from the competition, it is still a versatile premium smartphone with enough power to handle almost anything you can throw at it. And with this week's massive discounts, it's an excellent choice for anyone wanting high-end performance at an affordable price.

Continuing on the Nokia train, the already budget-friendly Nokia 3.1 is even cheaper this week thanks to a raft of impressive New Year deals. Sitting at the lower end of Nokia's Android smartphone family, the Nokia 3.1 isn't exactly the fastest phone on the market, but it's powerful enough for basic use and packs all the standard features you'd expect from a modern smartphone.
We were a little lukewarm on the Nokia 3.1 at launch, but at this week's steeply discounted price, it's a much more attractive option for folks wanting a basic smartphone at a reasonable price.
|Nokia 3.1 16GB||Kogan||$189 + delivery||Buy now|
|Nokia 3.1 16GB||Amazon||$200.27||Buy now|
|Nokia 3.1 16GB||eBay||$209||Buy now|
|Nokia 3.1 16GB||JB Hi-Fi||$249||Buy Now|
Top-of-the-line power rarely comes cheap, so this week's savings on the souped-up Huawei P20 Pro are worth checking out.
As we noted in our review, the Huawei P20 Pro holds the title of the best camera phone currently available, packing 3 rear-facing lenses with a hefty maximum resolution of 40MP. This makes it one of the top choices for folks who love taking happy snaps, but it's also an excellent option for anyone looking for a high-quality premium smartphone. A slick screen, strong performance and the inclusion of water resistance ensure it's every bit as capable as other flagship handsets on the market.
Best of all, you can save a couple of hundred dollars off the RRP by taking advantage of this week's deals:
