Optus is selling the Oppo F1

Optus has signed up the low-cost Oppo F1 as a prepaid handset, while significantly cutting its already affordable asking price.

Oppo only recently launched the Oppo F1 into the Australian marketplace at an outright price of $299 through its online store and via Dick Smith retail stores, although with Dick Smith going out of business, you’d have to have been lucky to score one there.

Today Oppo announced that Optus will range the Oppo F1 through its Web site and stores for an even lower and more appealing price of just $199. We really rather liked the Oppo F1 -- you can read our full review here -- so cutting $100 off the asking price makes it an even more appealing prospect.

There are a few catches to the Optus Oppo F1 variant, aside from it being a pretty mean tongue twister. It’s locked to Optus on selected bands only, which isn’t entirely unusual for an exclusive device. You can only get it in Silver, and while the "full" Oppo F1 is a dual-SIM/shared micro SD type device, the Optus variant only enables one single SIM slot. You can still use that secondary slot to enhance the onboard storage, but not for dual SIM purposes.
