OPPO’s newest phones — the OPPO R15 and OPPO R15 Pro — have hit the shelves today, and we’ve got a wrap up of all the carrier plans on offer. On top of this, JB Hi-Fi is offering big discounts too. You can get $400 off either phone if you ditch your current phone plan and swap to Telstra.

The plan you’ll need to sign-up for is JB’s $49 per month Telstra deal, which includes 25GB of data and unlimited talk and text on a 12-month contract. This offer is available in store only for customers not already on Telstra.

The way it works out, over a year on Telstra, for $200 on top of the retail price of the phone, you’re getting a phone service too with 25GB data to use each month. It’s not a bad deal, and it’s on offer for the next two weeks.

Besides Telstra, you can grab the OPPO R15 Pro on Optus, Vodafone and Woolworths Mobile:

The OPPO R15 is also at Woolworths, on 24 month plans for now:

So what about the phones? The R15 Pro and standard R15 are OPPO’s latest “affordable premium” devices.

Both the Oppo R15 and R15 Pro sport a 6.28″ bezel-less Super Full Screen (2280×1090) resolution, 18:9 aspect ratio display which of course sports a notch. Internally Oppo is using a Mediatek Helios P20 for the R15 and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 for the R15 Pro. Both handsets come with 6GB RAM + 128GB of onboard storage with an option to install a MicroSD card up to 256GB inside.

One key difference we noted is that while the R15 doesn’t include NFC, the R15 Pro does list it as a spec, so if using Tap & Pay is important to you, you may want to keep that in mind.

The Oppo R15 will have a 3,450 mAh battery while the Oppo R15 Pro only gets a 3,400mAh battery, with both handsets supporting Oppo’s super fast VOOC charging.

Hmmm…. My R9 Plus has a nasty screen crack. Do I hope the latest version of ColorOS is better than V3 … I’d prefer the OnePlus 6 but dunno if I want to have to grey import it. Hmmm….


Got my R15 Pro on on Sunday. Haven’t had a great deal of time with it yet, but what I have had is very much on the plus side. I particularly like the clone phone app which brought over all my contacts,apps and settings from my R9S. From what I can see ColorOS 5 is better. With the R9S I tried running Nova Launcher and it kept reverting to the default Oppo launcher. I’ve set Nova on the R15Pro and (so far) it’s stuck. The face recognition for unlocking works so well you don’t really notice that it did anything.… Read more »
