Kogan Launches New 5-Inch Agora Quad-core Smartphone For $189

Kogan might not be one of the top brands in the Android smartphone market but the company is becoming quite popular since it tries to deliver devices that cost cheap yet come with competitive hardware specs. The company’s successful release early last year of the dual-core Agora smartphone is now followed by a quad-core model.


The Agora 5-inch Quad-core smartphone is the latest device of Kogan that the company says comes with features found only in smartphones four times its price.

Ruslan Kogan, founder and CEO of Kogan, said that “Some big tech companies think they can launch a phone for the budget-conscious consumer and still price it at over £450. At Kogan, we know better. We think everyone should be able to afford a great smartphone that has all the main features that you want, without paying for features you don’t need. Thousands of customers said they want a phone that looks stylish, but is also powerful and feature-packed – and that’s exactly what the Kogan Agora Quad-core Smartphone delivers. The team at Kogan has been working hard to create not just the best value smartphone the UK, but the best in the world.”

The Agora 5-inch Quad-core smartphone sports a big IPS display making images and videos appear vibrant. Its use of a quad core processor combined with 1 GB RAM makes apps and games work smoothly while its dual-SIM feature allows users to separate business and personal accounts into one device.
