Optus adds two new devices to its prepaid line with the X Start 3 and X Pro 2

Optus has quietly added two new Android devices to its prepaid line, namely the X Pro 2 and the X Start 3, both of which are from ZTE’s catalog of devices here in Australia. The devices are aimed at budget-conscious people or those who can’t spend hundreds of dollars on a mid-range or high-end device.

Optus X Pro 2

The Optus X Pro 2 is the more expensive budget device, with the device coming with a 6.52-inch IPS HD+ display (720×1600 @ 269 ppi) powered by an Octa Core (1.6GHz x 4+). 1.2 GHz x 4) Processor although unfortunately neither Optus nor ZTE have specified the exact type of processor used.

It has 3 GB of RAM in addition to 64 GB of onboard storage (with around 55 GB available to the user) that can be expanded up to 512 GB via MicroSD.

In terms of cameras, the Optus X Pro 2 comes with a triple rear camera that consists of a 13MP main camera, 2MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor lens. The front is a 5MP camera.

The Optus X Pro 2 comes with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n at 2.4 GHz, Bluetooth version 4.2, NFC capabilities, 3.5mm audio jack, a 5000 mAh non-removable battery and runs Android 11 out of the box, although it’s not sure if the device will get an update to Android 12.

The Optus X Pro 2 is available in gray only from your local Optus store or the Optus prepaid website for $179.

Optus X Launch 3

The Optus X Start 3 is the more budget-friendly end of the devices, with the X Start 3 coming with a 5-inch FWVGA+ display (480×960 pixels) and being powered by a quad-core (1.4GHz x 4) processor, although the exact type of processor being used is not directly stated by Optus or ZTE.

The Optus X Start 3 comes with 1 GB of RAM and 32 GB of onboard storage, with around 24 GB available to the user, which can be expanded up to 256 GB via a MicroSD card.

In terms of cameras, the Optus X Start 3 comes with a single 5MP camera on the back, with a 2MP camera on the front that doesn’t sound like the best on paper, but if you’re not worried about flawless selfies, this could be good enough for the occasional video chat or selfie.

The Optus X Start 3 comes with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n at 2.4 GHz, Bluetooth version 4.2, a removable battery at 2000 mAh and runs on Android 11 Go edition, although it is probably the best and most secure My guess is that there may not be an upgrade to Android 12 Go Edition if and when it becomes available.
