It's not quite a brand new iPhone, but Optus' discount on Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is a contender for one of the boldest Black Friday bargains doing the rounds this year.

Launched back in October 2020, the Galaxy S20 FE 5G was Samsung's first stab at a premium economy smartphone. It's not quite as powerful or capable as its flagship counterpart, but it gets most of the way there at a competitive price.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G has naturally declined in price in the years since then, but Optus' boldest Black Friday bargain is knocking two-thirds off the usual RRP. This reduced price makes it one of the best sub-$300 options currently available to Aussies looking for a cheap new smartphone. So long as you're picking it up on a postpaid mobile plan through Optus, you can grab the device for $298 rather than the usual $898.

On a 36-month plan, you're looking at monthly device repayments of approximately $8.28 per month. For comparison, a 24-month plan will run you $12.42 per month in device repayments.

Check out the widget below for a round-up of popular Optus plans that can be paired with the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G.

Like many of this year's Black Friday promotions, this deal expires on the 28th of November, 2022.
