Kogan Outs 5-Inch Quad-Core Smartphone For Under $200

Kogan has this morning gone live with a new low-cost, quad-core, 5-inch handset designed to knock the socks off competitors like the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and even the iPhone 5c. The best part is the price!

The new Kogan Agora gets you phenomenal power under the hood for the price tag.

The new Kogan Agora Quad-Core packs in a 1.2GHz quad-core processor (naturally), 1GB of RAM, a 5-inch HD IPS screen (1280×720), a 2000mAh battery, Android 4.2.2 and an 8MP rear-facing camera.

The new Agora still retains the old Agora’s dual-SIM capabilities as well as the old Agora’s price tag. All this power comes in at just $199. It’s also packing a new rounded design similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Kogan is so confident with the phone that it’s not just an Australian launch: the new Agora will be shipping to the US and the UK also, so you’ll have some competition when it comes to ordering this thing. The last Agora was so successful that it was sold out for weeks on end.

The interesting thing to keep in mind however is just how quickly the Agora range is trying to keep pace with the competition. The last Agora was released at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January. That’s just nine months between drinks. Thankfully, the price is so low that you can probably afford to chuck the old one and upgrade without it causing too much of a headache for your bank balance.

The Agora goes on sale on October 3. [Kogan]
