Vodafone has launched new affordable 5G smartphones into the New Zealand market, the OPPO Find X2 Pro 5G and the Find X2 Lite 5G

"With 5G now live across large parts of New Zealand, we are 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," says Vodafone consumer director Carolyn Luey.

"Vodafone customers can now access future technologies at an affordable price with these awesome and sophisticated smartphones," she says.

"5G is an exponential leap forward in speed and connectivity benefits that customers can experience on Vodafones live 5G network with OPPOs new range of devices, added to the data certainty of our Endless Data plans," Luey says.

"Starting from $799, these are the most affordable 5G smartphones on the market and were offering some generous add-ons for value-driven Kiwis including a free speaker and wireless ear buds to further entice technology enthusiasts."

Pre-orders of the new OPPO Find X2 Pro 5G with Interest Free on a $60 Endless Data Plan or above will get $900 of value in the package they receive.
