Kogan launches 5” quad-core smartphone for under £150


Kogan has launched a high-power Android smartphone, looking to provide a cheaper alternative to the colossal market leaders Apple and Samsung.
The Kogan Agora 5.0 is – as its name suggests – a 5?inch phone, equipped with a 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 and an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera.
The Australian online-only retailer entered the market earlier this year with a budget phablet – and we’re sorry to say that it looked as ugly as the words ‘budget phablet’ sound in your ears. The company’s second effort though, is a leaner, curvier and, well, better than its last.
Ruslan Kogan, founder and CEO of Kogan, said British shoppers deserved an affordable smartphone that still packed a punch.
“Some big tech companies think they can launch a phone for the budget-conscious consumer and still price it at over £450. At Kogan, we know better. We think everyone should be able to afford a great smartphone that has all the main features that you want, without paying for features you don’t need. ”
He added: “Thousands of customers said they want a phone that looks stylish, but is also powerful and feature-packed – and that’s exactly what the Kogan Agora Quad-core Smartphone delivers.”
The Agora 5.0 also comes with dual-SIM capability, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage – not bad, considering it’s priced at a staggeringly low £149.
For more information and to see the full specification, head over to the Kogan website now. Additionally, if you can think of an uglier pairing of words than ‘budget phablet’, do let us know.
