Mobile phone deals are already on offer at the start of Black Friday week. Samsung smartphones feature prominently in early sales and a handful can be found already unlocked from retailers like Amazon, JB Hi-Fi and The Good Guys, with more expected to be unlocked later in the week. 

In previous Black Friday sales, we’ve seen entry-level deals take centre stage – phone deals from companies like Huawei and HMD Global (Nokia) enjoyed the vanguard of interest from shoppers last year. But this year, deals on entry-level phones stand side-by-side with deals on premium smartphones that were only released as recently as January 2021.

That means there’s something for just about everyone in 2021. Whether you’re after a do-it-all, high-end handset with a gorgeous AMOLED display like the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, or a low-cost device like the Nokia 5.4 as a second phone for some gaming time on the couch, you’ve got an excellent chance of finding what you’re after this year. You can read up on some of the best deals available now in our guide below.
