Kogan has today announced a new Android phone in their line of Agora products, announcing the Kogan Agora 6.
Kogan is focusing on price with the Agora 6, pricing the phone at $179 which means you don’t get all the bells and whistles but you do get some important ones like a microSD Card slot and the phone offers Dual-SIM capability.
Russell Proud, Product Manger at Kogan.com said of the new Agora 6:
We know Aussies want a full feature smartphone without having to spend half a month’s pay. 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.
Spec wise, the Agora 6 is fairly decent for the price, offering a 5″ 720P resolution IPS display as well as more RAM, better camera and higher resolution screen than similarly priced phones.

The Agora 6 ships with Android 5.1, though Kogan advise ‘there are plans to have an upgrade available to Android 6.0 in the near future’ – which is actually the ‘latest’ version of Android as listed on the Kogan website.
Kogan offers a 1 year warranty on the Agora 6, with options to update to a 3 or 5 year warranty for an additional cost.
The Agora 6 is available for purchase from today, through the Kogan website though stock won’t actually leave the warehouse until the 12th of April. The Agora 6 can only be purchased from Kogan so you will of course have to pay the delivery fee, which was about $9, if the Agora 6 sounds like it’s the phone for you, head over and check it out.
