Optus adds Galaxy S10 5G and Oppo Reno 5G to its 5G line-up
Telstra's exclusive on Samsung and Oppo's 5G handsets comes to an end.
Up until that point, Optus' stated 5G ambitions sat in the fixed broadband space, although it did say that it would launch Oppo's at-that-point-unnamed 5G handset into the local market back at Mobile World Congress 2019 at some point this year.
That point is today, with Optus announcing that it's offering the Oppo Reno 5G as it expands its range of 5G phones.
Optus will offer the Oppo Reno 5G on a range of plans starting at $75 a month on a $45 plan with $30 phone repayments. That plan would only score you 4GB of data per month, but higher tier plans do pitch up as high as 200GB per month. At launch, it's also bundling in a set of Bose QC 35 headphones II with the Oppo Reno 5G.
We've already put the Oppo Reno 5G through its paces, albeit not on the Optus 5G network, and you can read that full review here.
Optus has also effectively removed the "Telstra exclusive" sticker that sat on the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, because that handset is also joining its 5G device offerings. Plans for the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will start at $95 per month on a $45 plan with a $50 phone repayment. At launch, Optus is bundling in a Samsung Galaxy Watch Active with the Galaxy S10 5G.
Again, we've put the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G through the review paces (but not on Optus 5G), which you can read about here.
