Kogan changes the Android smartphone market

Kogan changes the Android smartphone market

The sub-$260 4G Smartphone is now available in New Zealand

New Zealand, 5 August 2014 - Kogan Agora 4G, the best value 4G Android smartphone in the world, today launched in New Zealand for just $259.

Available exclusively from Kogan.com, the Kogan Agora 4G combines a top class feature set with solid build quality. The features and feel of this smartphone are normally found in models costing at least twice as much.

Running on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS, it sports a crisp 5” HD display, Lightning 4G LTE Connectivity, full day battery life, and a snappy Quad Core processor. All this in a beautiful package.

The Kogan Agora 4G even beats the Moto G in every benchmark measure.*

In a first, Kogan and BenQ have partnered to create the device, which will make the combined power of 4G and Quad Core available to more people than ever before.

Ruslan Kogan, CEO and founder of Kogan.com, said the launch of such an affordable device gives everyone in New Zealand the power to enjoy the high speeds of a 4G network.

“Full feature smartphones with 4G connectivity are still out of reach for many Kiwis.

“I applaud companies like Google releasing devices that are priced better than Samsung’s Galaxy S5 or Apple’s iPhone. But all these phones are still too expensive for many people -- especially when they’re also being asked to upgrade every year.

“We’re releasing a quality device that smashes the competition on the price, yet packs all the features consumers expect from a high end smartphone.

“This is a truly beautiful phone. It feels great in your hands, has a big high definition screen, and offers 4G connectivity at an incredible price point. I can’t wait for people to get to enjoy it,” Kogan said.

The Auckland-based company has increased its estimate to build the centre to between $470 million and $530 million as the construction boom across the country drives up building costs and design changes add to the bill.
