The latest Kogan branded smartphone has been unveiled. This one is the Kogan Agora 5.0 and as the name would imply — the handset is sporting a 5-inch IPS display. In this case that also means a resolution of 1280 x 720. Other goodies here include Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and a quad-core 1.2GHz processor.

The Kogan Agora 5.0 also has Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 801.11 b/g/n, a 2000 mAh battery, 1GB of RAM, microSD memory card slot and 4GB of internal storage space. Rounding out the specs for the Agora 5.0 include a 2 megapixel front-facing camera and an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera. The handset also has dual SIM support.

This means you will be able to have two active SIM cards installed in the handset. Otherwise, network support is listed as being quad-band 2G on 850/900/1800 and 1900MHz as well as tri-band 3G on 850/1900 and 2100MHz. Of course, similar to what we have seen in the past with other Kogan handsets — the price is fairly low.


In this case the Agora 5.0 is priced at $189 for those in the US and at £149 for those in the UK. At this point Kogan still has the Agora 5.0 listed for pre-order only. A shipping date of October 9th has been set and while the price point seems to match the specs, this could be a hard sell for someone already used to 4G LTE connectivity.
