Take a look at Kogan’s new affordable, feature-packed Agora 8 Plus smartphone

Kogan has released its latest affordable smartphone – the Agora 8 Plus – which gives customers on an entry-level budget the option of having a feature-packed device.

The Agora 8 Plus has a Gorilla Glass scratch-resistant 5.5-inch full high definition 1080p screen and has a dual SIM card slot so you can have both a private and work number in the same device.

One of the slots can support 4G while the secondary SIM is limited to 3G.

Kogan’s Agora 8 Plus has a fingerprint reader on the rear panel for added security and is powered by an octa-core processor. The device is also running the Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.
