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.

Also onboard is a 13-megapixel camera with auto-focus and an 8-megapixel front camera.

There is 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage which is also expandable with an additional 128GB microSD card.

“At Kogan.com, we are committed to making the latest technology more accessible and affordable for all Australians and the new Kogan Agora 8 Plus is a testament to that.”
