Last night the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro were finally launched in London. It didn’t take long for Optus to get its plans out, which are available for pre-order from today. Interestingly, they only include the Pro.
This may be because the Mate 20 is at a price ($1,099) that people are more likely to buy outright, whereas the $1,599 Pro is definitely in Plan Pricing for a lot of consumers. But we don’t know for sure.
Optus was first out the door earlier today, but Vodafone has now joined the party – and with a distinct difference.”]
You’ll also find that the plans aren’t as expansive as other recent flagships, such as the new iPhones and Google Pixel 3s. In fact, they’re only available on 24-month My Plan Plus postpaid plans. But most include double during the pre-order period, which goes until the 31st. Shipping is expected from November 1.
But while there may not be that many plans with Optus, it’s still more than Telstra, which isn’t carrying the Mate 20 series at all.
Optus Mate 20 Pro
Optus is also offering customers the Huawei deal for the Mate 20 pro, which includes a pair of wireless Freebuds and a wireless charger at no extra cost if you pre-order before October 31. For more information, visit the Optus website.
In case you missed the news, Huawei finally has wireless charging on a device other than the Porsche Design Mate RS. It's been a long time coming and was a welcome, if not surprising edition to the new Mate 20 Pro.
