Like every other 5G product right now, it’s only available through Telstra.
It comes with a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED primary display, a dual rear camera setup (12MP and 16MP wide-angle), dual selfie cameras (8MP and 5MP wide-angle) and both a fingerprint scanner and facial recognition.
The second OLED display comes in at 6.2-inches to create a faux foldable effect for multi-tasking and gaming. It’s removable and comes for free with the main device
As for the specs we’re looking at a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, X50 5G model with Wi-Fi 6 support, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage and a 4,000mAh battery.
As with all of the new 5G plans from Telstra we advise against the cheapest, which is still $114 a month for a mere 3GB data that cam be easiy blown through. An extra $10 a month gets you 20GB a month, which is a much better deal.
If you want to go all out, Telstra is offering its ‘Unlimited’ plan at the same price it does on all of its plans – $199 a month for unlimited data, as well as local calls and texts.
This leaves the Samsung S10 5G as the most expensive 5G device to get on a plan in Australia right now. It starts at a huge $141 a month for the aforementioned 3GB data.
The cheapest is the Oppo Reno, which starts at $99 a month for the same plan. This is the only sub-$100 5G phone plan currently available in Australia.
