“People tend to think that you need to spend a fortune to get a smartphone. The Kogan Agora 8 will make you think differently,” promises Sergiy Bobrovnychyy, Kogan’s Product Manager.

Here’s what the new sub $200 phone actually offers, and when you can get one.

So it’s got a 2.5D Dragontrail Glass display, 5-inch HD 1280×720 screen that Kogan promises is “thin, light, tough and scratch-resistant”. The Agora 8 is 4G compatible with dual SIM slots (one is 2G only, but still good for travelling), ships with Android 7 (Nougat) operating system, 2GB of RAM and a Quad-Core processor.

There’s a fingerprint sensor, too. Here’s the full list of specs and features:

  • Android 7.0 Nougat

  • Fingerprint sensor
  • 2400mAh battery

  • 5MP front facing camera
  • Expandable storage up to 128GB (using the second SIM slot)
