Kogan takes aim at smartphone big boys with $189 5-inch, quad-core Android handset


KAPHNHDQCXA-front-hiresAustralian electronics manufacturer Kogan has announced a 5-inch smartphone with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, dual-SIM slots, Android 4.2.2 operating system and a 5-inch IPS display.

The device will also arrive sporting an 8-megapixel camera and 4GB of storage on board. Alas, in keeping the price to a wallet-friendly £150 ($189 in the US, AU$ 199) for a SIM-free model, the ‘Kogan Agora Quad-core Smartphone’ (its actual name) had to omit luxuries like 4G LTE capabilities.

The handset is available to pre-order now and is due to start shipping from October 9.
