Aldi is at it again, this time launching a new Bauhn branded tablet and phone as one of their Special Buys, and are due to go on-sale on Saturday the 1st of November. Aldi is saying they’re the ‘Best’ tablet and smartphone yet.
The new Smartphone has got some fairly decent specs, including a 5″ screen and an un-named ‘Quad-Core’ processor with 2GB RAM, 32GB storage and a microSD card slot. The key feature for the smartphone is the Back Touch Sensor, which allows you to ‘Take photos, control music, or browse images conveniently with an extra sensor’. At $279 it’s a big ask with phones like the Moto G on the market, which are providing on-time OTA updates.
The Tablet is fairly run of the mill, offering a 10″ screen, 1.4GHz A9 Quad-core processor and 32GB of storage with a microSD card slot. There’s a mini HDMI port on the tablet to allow you to put your videos and screen out to a TV screen. The tablet will sell for $249.
