TeleChoice is selling Oppo mobile phones on contract
The Oppo R7, R7 Plus and Mirror 5s will be offered by predominantly SIM-only provider.
TeleChoice’s bread and butter when it comes to mobile plans has been the variety of SIM-only plans it offers, but now it's expanding. TeleChoice has announced that ut has signed up with Oppo to offer a range of Oppo handsets to its customers on 24-month plans.
The three handsets that TeleChoice will offer consumers are the Oppo R7, the slightly larger Oppo R7 Plus and the rather more entry-level Oppo Mirror 5s.
Oppo’s range of Australian handsets all run on Google’s Android platform, but via a very heavily reskinned Android variant that Oppo calls "Color OS". That gives these Android 5.1 phones a look that’s closer to iOS than it is Android, especially as they eschew the regular Android app drawer in favour of scrolling pages of apps. Here's how all three Oppo handsets compare:
|Oppo R7||Oppo R7 Plus||Oppo Mirror 5s|
|Processor||Qualcomm MSM8939 Octa-core 1.5GHz||Qualcomm MSM8939 Octa-core||Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53|
The Oppo R7, Oppo R7 Plus and Oppo Mirror 5s retail for $449, $599 and $269 respectively if you purchase them directly from Oppo or via Dick Smith, who signed Oppo up for exclusive physical retail sales back in June.
TeleChoice’s deals add $20 per month to its regular SIM-only plans for the Oppo R7 and $25 per month for Oppo R7 Plus respectively, and between $12 to $15 per month for the Oppo Mirror 5s model. Oddly the Mirror 5s prices scale up for the more expensive plans, which usually isn’t the case for phones on a contract.
