Telstra this week launched two of the year’s most anticipated smartphones: the Google Pixel 2 and iPhone X. Telstra is the exclusive telco partner for Google’s new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Both phones boast an even more impressive camera for effortless and stunning photography, with unlimited online storage for photos taken on your Pixel 2 in Google Photos. The devices are also Telstra Wi-Fi Calling compatible (extending basic voice call coverage over supported Wi-Fi networks to places in a home or apartment when leaving 4G coverage). This year Telstra customers receive the Google Home Mini as a gift with purchase with Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the compact and mighty new addition to the Google Home family.
Launched on Friday 3 November, the iPhone X features a revolutionary new design with a stunning all-screen display, A11 Bionic chip with neural engine for powerful machine learning, augmented reality and immersive 3D gaming experiences, wireless charging capable and Face ID, delivering an innovative and secure new way to unlock, authenticate and pay. The TrueDepth camera that enables Face ID brings Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting to the front camera for beautiful selfies with a depth-of-field effect and enables Animoji, which captures and analyses over 50 different facial muscle movements to bring emoji to life in a fun new way. A redesigned rear camera with dual optical image stabilisation includes a new colour filter, deeper pixels, an improved Apple-designed image signal processor and features Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting allowing customers to capture stunning photos and videos. The all-glass front and back on iPhone X features the most durable glass ever in a smartphone in two beautiful finishes, Silver and Space Gray.
Telstra’s GM of Device Experience, Deven Harrison said: “There’s huge excitement surrounding the launch of these new phones and we’re delighted to be able to offer our customers these next-generation smartphones on the country’s best mobile network.”
Both Pixel 2 and iPhone X are available on Telstra’s recently launched Go Mobile Swap Lease, Go Mobile Plus, My Business Lease and My Business Mobile plans. Featuring Telstra’s most generous data inclusions yet, the new plans give customers the power to do more on the country’s fastest mobile network (based on national average combined 3G/4G mobile speeds). To support growing demand for premium, on-demand entertainment, selected Go Mobile Swap Lease and Go Mobile Plus plans also include a 12-month Foxtel Now subscription for up to three Foxtel Now Starter Packs, for a truly customised entertainment experience.
