If you’ve got an older smartphone and have been waiting for an excuse to upgrade to something with a large screen, high-end specs and an affordable price, Kogan has delivered its latest smartphone package.
Proudly boasting this model ensures Kogan is "sticking to its mission to make the latest technology more accessible and affordable". It has been dubbed the Kogan Agora 6 Plus, with a "beautiful aluminium body" and "features comparable to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7, but for a fraction of the cost".
Costing $349, with delivery charges starting at $9, and a free Kogan Mobile SIM thrown in, the specs are impressive. It makes the phone easily affordable by almost anyone, and is perfectly paired with either any of the low-cost pre-paid plans out there (including from Kogan), or any telco's post-paid plans.
Android 6.0 comes as standard, as does a sharp 5.5" FHD IPS display, a 21MP rear camera from Sony, an 8MP front camera for beautiful selfies, a desirable dual SIM configuration as standard for international flexibility, and a powerful Octa-Core processor to ensure speedy operation.
And, in a first for a smartphone from the Australian brand, it also comes with a fingerprint sensor for enhanced security, a beautifully designed aluminium body, and NFC for fast and secure payments.

The appropriately named Russell Proud, product manager at Kogan.com, presumably swelled with pride when he stated: “This is the best smartphone we have ever made.
“Our customers have been crying out for us to include the same features as the high-end smartphones for a reasonable price.
“The look and feel of the phone is second to none for this price point. We think this will compare very well side-by-side with the lauded Samsung Galaxy S7, but for around one-third of the price.”
As noted above, the new flagship Kogan Agora 6 Plus is available exclusively at Kogan.com for $349.
The only real catch is that deliveries won’t start until 30 June, which is Kogan’s usual style when launching the very latest technologies at cutting edge prices. So while you will have to wait, it’s Kogan’s standard modus operandi.
