Kogan launches low-cost Agora 6 handset

Alex Kidman 30 March 2016


The Kogan Agora 6 packs in an octa-core processor and a predictably low price point.

Kogan sells a lot of import phones across all the major brands with a focus on price cuts, but it also still continues to sell its "own" brand phones as well. The history of the Kogan Agora brand is a fascinating one, given the original Agora was heavily hyped in the dawn of the Android phone era only to fail to reach market. Since then, Kogan’s offered a range of mostly sub-$200 phones for those after a handset bargain.

The latest in the Kogan Agora line is the Kogan Agora 6, which Kogan is taking pre-orders for now. Whereas some Kogan branded devices can have lengthy pre-order periods, the Agora 6 is set to ship from 12 April from Kogan.


Predictably it’s an essentially budget specification device with a 5 inch HD display. HD in this case is the correct marketing, as it's a simple 720p (1280x720 pixel) display. It’s a Dual SIM Android 5.1 device with 16GB of internal storage, upgradeable via microSD.

The underlying processor is a MediaTek MTK6753, a 2015 Octa-Core processor that should supply reasonable but probably not exceptional performance. Don’t expect it to stand up well against, say, a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Apple iPhone SE, but if your needs are modest it could well be reasonable.

The key selling proposition for Kogan’s Agora 6 is of course its asking price, which is only $179 plus delivery.

Here are the essential specifications for the Kogan Agora 6:
