Optus have quietly added a new budget low end device to its pre-paid line up of devices with another of its X series with the Optus X Sight.

The X Sight, while not something to get overly excited about, does offer some pretty decent specs for a budget device for your hard earned but is for those who aren’t wanting or needing the latest high end specs at a least — at $99 you are sure not going to get that.

So what do you get for the $99::

  • 5.5-inch TFT IPS Display (720×1440)
  • Quad Core A53 @ 1.3GHz Unknown Processor Chip
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB on board storage which is capable of being extended to 128GB via MicroSD card
  • 8MP Rear Camera
  • 5MP Front Facing Camera
  • 3000mAh (removeable) Battery
  • Bluetooth v4.2
  • GPS: BDS/GPS/Galileo, with A-GPS, Accelerometer
  • FM radio
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • Android 10 (Go Edition)

The Optus X Sight is the company’s first ever Android 10 (Go Edition) device and at $99 it is no surprise to see it as a prepaid device. It is also a welcoming decision to still have a 3.5mm headphone jack, given many devices and manufacturers are slowly removing this option from their devices — although it does seem to be a staple of the entry-level devices.

If you’re interesting in the Optus X Sight for the $99 price tag, then you can check out the Optus Website or head over to your local Optus Store (if they are open — please check website first and remember to use social distancing if you do go there) and check it out today.

Indeed, removable batteries in phones are a rare sight these days, so that’s the reason why I just bought myself a Optus X Sight.

Big W currently has the X Sight for $69 by the way.

Processor is a Qualcomm 215:

Nice to see a removable battery again.
