Aussie online retailer Kogan has been releasing new phones in its Agora line every few months for a while now, today announcing the latest Agora 4G Pro will ship on July 2 with pre-orders now available. The phone costs $299 and carries impressive specs for its price range.
The Agora 4G Pro has a 5.2-inch Full HD (1080p) IPS screen, a 1.5Ghz octa-core processor (listed as MSM8939 in the specs – that’s a Snapdragon 615) and 2GB RAM. There’s a 13MP back-illuminated camera, and 8MP on the front, with a generous 2500mAh battery packed in. You’ll get 16GB onboard storage, and the phone has a MicroSD slot that can add an extra 64GB.
You’ll also be able to live in the fast lane on Telstra and Optus’ 700 MHz 4G networks, and Vodafone’s 850 MHz. That’s in addition to the other standard Australian LTE frequencies (though you’re probably out of luck on Optus’ 2300 MHz 4G Plus spectrum), and 3G.
Running the show is Android 5.0 Lollipop – not the latest version of Android (that would be 5.1), but it’s also not far off. We haven’t seen OS updates for Kogan’s previous phones though, so that could be a showstopper if that’s important to you.
