When does the Telstra Flip 2 come out? You can pick one up as a Telstra exclusive now.
What’s new about the Telstra Flip 2? While smartphones predominate, the Telstra Flip 2 offers 4GX connectivity for those who just want a simple flip phone.
How much does the Telstra Flip 2 cost? $119 outright or available on contract.
What is the Telstra Flip 2?
The Telstra Flip 2 is a phone designed for folks who loved old-school flip phones, such as the iconic Motorola RAZR. It's not built by Telstra, with the Chinese manufacturer ZTE producing it on Telstra's behalf.
The Telstra Flip 2 isn't a smartphone in an apps sense; it's more of a feature phone for those who don't want to bother with apps or other connectivity issues. The Flip 2 is Blue Tick rated, so it's ideal for regional and rural users on the Telstra network, and it's also capable of mp3 music playback if you need a small portable music player.
Is the Telstra Flip 2 powerful?
The Flip 2 isn't sold as a powerful premium phone, but you wouldn't expect that kind of power at this price point. However, one area where it does have some potential power is in its ability to access Telstra's 4GX network at up to 42Mbps downstream, although on a simpler flip phone like this you're not likely to tax data usage in any real way unless you use it as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot.
Does the Telstra Flip 2 have a good camera?
The Telstra Flip 2's camera is on the very ordinary side, with a 2MP rear camera and just a 0.3MP front camera. Maybe if you're into pixellated selfies as an artform then it could have appeal, but this isn't a phone to buy for its camera chops.
How do I charge the Telstra Flip 2?
The Telstra Flip 2 charges via standard microUSB to a relatively meagre 1,000mAh battery. Then again, given the lower performance claims of the Flip 2, that should be good enough to get you through most days of usage with this particular phone.
Is the Telstra Flip 2 water resistant?
The Flip 2 has no particular water resistance, so it's vital to keep it away from water immersion. As with most phones, a very light sprinkle of rain shouldn't trouble it, but anything more concentrated is likely to be bad news.
When will the Telstra Flip 2 be available in Australia?
You can get the Telstra Flip 2 right now exclusively from Telstra.
How much does the Telstra Flip 2 cost?
Telstra sells the Flip 2 as an outright phone for prepaid plans at $119. Alternatively, you can match it with any 24-month Telstra contract plan, with the added bonus of no handset repayments to make on any pricing tier.
