Vodafone partnering with OPPO to offer additional high-spec 5G devices to Kiwis
One week before a range of new 5G smartphones start to hit the shelves around New Zealand, Vodafone is delighting customers with an awesome pre-sale offer in partnership with OPPO.
Vodafone’s Consumer Director Carolyn Luey says, “With 5G now live across large parts of New Zealand, we’re hearing from Kiwis they want access to a greater range of devices so they can take advantage of the faster speeds and greater reliability evident in the next generation mobile network. Vodafone customers can now access future technologies at an affordable price with these awesome and sophisticated smartphones, OPPO Find X2 Pro 5G and the Find X2 Lite 5G.
“5G is an exponential leap forward in speed and connectivity – benefits that customers can experience on Vodafone’s live 5G network with OPPO’s new range of devices, added to the data certainty of our Endless Data plans .
“Starting from $799, these are the most affordable 5G smartphones on the market and we’re offering some generous add-ons for value-driven Kiwis including a free speaker and wireless ear buds to further entice technology enthusiasts.”
