Aspera Mobile has launched two new low-cost models ahead of the Christmas peak buying season, with one being the AS6 smartphone for $149 and the second being the F42 flip phone with pre-loaded social media apps for $99.

The company has launched similar models before this too.

In a statement, Aspera said the AS6 had a 5.99-inch screen with face recognition, a fingerprint sensor, dual-SIM and supporting 4G. The F42 has easy-to-use large buttons.

Aspera Mobile managing director Allan Robertson explained, "In the AS6 Aspera has kept its brand promise to bring a great value, budget-priced smartphone to consumers and we have specifically designed it to suit anyone looking for a large screen, full Android phone that won't break the bank.

"Also, to get face recognition and a fingerprint sensor in a full-featured smartphone for $149 is exceptional value and very rare indeed."

The AS6 has a Mediatek Quad core 1.5GHz MT6739WW processor that easily runs Android 10. There is 2GB RAM plus 32GB ROM, which can be expanded using an SD card up to a maximum of 64GB.

The two rear cameras are 8MP and 0.8MP and there is a 5MP front camera. The AS6 has a 3000mAh battery, connectivity via USB, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi hotspot and VOLTE, support for 1/3/5/7/8/28a+b 4G bands and 850/900/2100Mhz 3G bands and gel protective case.

The F42 has GPS built in and WhatsApp and Facebook are already installed. The 1350mAh Li-ion battery gives good usage time as it powers its 512MB RAM plus 4GB ROM memory (expandable via SD card to 64GB) via its fast Mediatek 6731 quad core 1.1GHz processor.

The flip phone also features a 2MP rear and 0.3MP front camera, HD voice, programmable speed dials, a USB charge port and a 3.5mm earphone jack.

Both devices are being sold at Australia Post outlets, Harvey Norman and Big W stores and in petrol stations, service stations and convenience stores across the country.
