Chinese smartphone makers OPPO and realme have announced a number of deals on phones, watches and ear buds for the Black Friday shopping bonanza.

In a statement, OPPO said it would cut the price of its Find X2 Pro 5G phone by $400 to $1599 for the shopping extravaganza.

The device has a 120Hz QHD+ Ultra Vision Screen, 48MP Ultra Vision Camera System, 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 Flash Charge and a Snapdragon 865 Processor.

It can be bought from JB Hi-Fi, The Good Guys, Bing Lee, Kogan, Mobileciti and Telstra for a limited time.

Additionally, the company said it would offer $150 off its watch portfolio with OPPO, JB Hi-Fi, Bing Lee, Woolworths, Mobileciti, Wireless 1 and Amazon all offering the wearables.

realme is offering 15% off select items at its online store from Black Friday until 1 December.

Additionally, the company said all smartphones bought between 22 October and 18 December would go into a draw for a new MG3 Excite.

Some of the deals realme is offering are the realme buds Q for $79, the realme 7 Pro smartphone for $599 and the low-budget realme C11 for $199.

The realme 7 Pro has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It has a Sony 64MP Quad Camera, an ultra-wide-angle lens and a 4cm Macro Lens.

Meanwhile, Satnam Narang, a research engineer at security firm Tenable, offered a word of caution to consumers who plan to get involved in the Black Friday bonanza.

"AusPost is predicting this year's Black Friday and Cyber Monday to be one of the largest online shopping peaks recorded in history," he said. "While the impact of the pandemic and the low prices draw shoppers online, cyber criminals will be chomping at the bit in anticipation of the boom.

"Some of the world's most prominent cyber threats, including malware such as Emotet and Trickbot, have enjoyed considerable success, and this year, retailers and their customers, will need to be more alert than ever before for phishing schemes.

"The use of Homoglyphs or 'lookalike' pages to fool consumers into submitting details remains a problem for consumers as these clever tactics are being used by cyber criminals to trick unsuspecting shoppers.

"Retailers also need to be on alert for vulnerabilities in plugins used to power their eCommerce sites, such as the recent WooCommerce plugin security flaw which was installed in 40,000 websites, along with the notorious Magecart card skimmer that infected over 2000 websites in a recent operation.

"Having endured such a challenging year, it's imperative that retailers take cyber threats seriously to ensure they're not undermined at this most critical time of year. Retailers must be patching, auditing plug-ins and third-party integrations as well as actively implementing content security policies."
