Optus has been appointed as the only authorised Australian stockist, until the end of June, for the Samsung Galaxy A50 smartphone.

The telco announced on Wednesday that until 30 June it was the sole authorised retailer for the new device, and offered the A50 on its 24-month My Plan Plus plans.

Optus head of Product Shawn Van Graan said, “Optus is thrilled to be the only authorised retailer in Australia to stock the Samsung Galaxy A50. The handset offers an array of exciting features and delivers exceptional value. It’s also a top pick device for regional coverage on the Optus network.

“We know there are approximately four million customers in Australia who are in the market for a plan that offers exceptional value and the launch of the Galaxy A50 now means that customers can get their hands on a new smartphone packed with loads of great features all for a low monthly cost.”

Graan said that in collaboration with Samsung, Optus was offering customers “a device with many features that you would expect from a high-end smartphone including a large 6.4” FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U Display, which are perfect for viewing the amazing content that Optus has on offer on a great value plan”.

Optus offers the Samsung Galaxy A50 on a $49 Promo Plus plan, including 10GB of monthly data (min. total cost is $1176 over 24 months). The plan also includes the option to add Mobile TV Streaming for 24 months at no additional cost, “so customers can enjoy selected streaming services without using data”.

  • Unlimited standard national talk and text (Standard Australian mobiles and landlines, 13/1300 numbers and voicemail, Standard national SMS and MMS)
  • Optus Sport subscription can be added at no extra charge
