Exclusive: Kogan To Unveil Cut-Price Android Smartphone At CES

There’s a lot to see here at CES 2013, but an unexpected player seems to be making an entrance. Kogan will fly into Vegas this week and the rumour is that he’ll be bringing with him a brand new, cut-price handset with a screen size similar to a Galaxy Note. Check out these exclusive photos.

Details are still sketchy about the so-called Kogan Agora, but from the images we’ve been leaked it looks like it will have dual-SIM capabilities, expandable memory, a whopping 2000mAh battery and a finish similar to that of the Kogan Agora 10-inch tablet.

The best part? We’re hearing that the Agora phone is only going to cost $149. Depending on the feature set, this could be one of the best deals we’ve seen on a smartphone since the Nexus 4.

Readers with long memories will remember that Kogan actually planned to launch an Agora-branded Android phone way back in 2009, but pulled out at the last minute. Given Kogan’s more recent push into offering prepaid SIMs, it’s not surprising that a phone is back on the agenda.

Kogan is holding an event on Thursday (Australian time), and we’ll bring you all the information from the launch.
