The banking group said the new smartphones will be available from 2 October 2017.

The X2 is enabled with Tap & Pay functionality using Near Field Communication (NFC) and has a pre-installed FNB widget that allows instant message viewing, viewing of Connect subscription usage balances and access to perform a quick recharge should the need arise.
The A2 also has a metallic finish with a 4.5 inch display and 8GB memory powered by an improved 2000 mAh battery.
Both devices are preloaded with FNB’s zero-rated banking App and calls from Connect SIM subscribers to the FNB contact centre are free, thus providing means to bank anywhere and at any time.
The ConeXis X2 will be R199/month with the deal including 25 anytime minutes and 100MB of data.
