Kogan launches 5" Quad-core Smartphone for under 150
London, United Kingdom, 18 September 2013 - Direct to consumer technology manufacturer Kogan.com/uk which makes the latest technology more affordable for all Brits, today launched a brand new, affordable, powerful quad-core smartphone, beating the big brands at their own game.
At just 149, the Kogan Agora Quad-core Smartphone boasts a stunning 5" HD IPS screen, a powerful 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, dual SIM capability, and a sharp 8 megapixel camera.

Ruslan Kogan, founder and CEO of Kogan, said British shoppers deserved an affordable smartphone that still packed a punch.
"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.
"The launch of our first smartphone at CES this year was a roaring success, with many calling it the best bang for buck in the world. But, we know we can do even better. We've taken all the feedback we received and poured it into this new design.
"We have a very active social media community who regularly provide us with suggestions on what they would like to see next in a smartphone.
