Kogan’s smartphones keep getting cheaper

E-tailer Kogan is expanding its line of budget smartphones with the AUD$179 Kogan Agora 6, a 5-inch handset boasting staple Android features including dual SIM, expandable storage, and a removable battery.

"We’re taking it up a notch with the Kogan Agora 6. This time, we’ve been able to create something at an unbelievable price point," said Kogan Product Manager Russell Proud. "At the same time, we’re hearing people are frustrated with other big brands for locking down their phones and not including features that offer flexibility like dual SIM cards, microSD storage, and removable batteries."

Other specifications include Android Lollipop, a 5-inch 720p display, a MediaTek 1.3GHz eight-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and an 8MP rear-facing camera.

The Agora 6 currently compliments the 5.2-inch AUD$299 Agora 4G Pro in Kogan's smartphone line-up.

While Kogan's smartphones are typically sold at bargain prices, post-purchase support through software updates is typically limited. Kogan's Agora 4G – which launched with KitKat – never saw an upgrade to Lollipop, let alone Marshmallow.

The Agora 6 is sold exclusively through Kogan.com.
