  • 5-inch FWVGA display

  • Micro USB, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity
  • Dual 4G SIM slots
  • Android 13 (Go edition)
  • 4G bands – 1/3/5/7/8/28a+b, 3G bands – 850/900/2100Mhz
  • 146.5mm*74mm*9.9mm in size

Allan Robertson, Aspera Mobile MD said, “We were delighted to celebrate our tenth year as a fully Australian owned and operated business this year. To mark the occasion we are launching our new range of phones starting with the AS5 4G smartphone for just $99. For the AS5 we are offering many of the features that are included on higher priced smartphones and thus by definition redefining what is possible at this price point. For example, the AS5 offers a 1.6GHz Octa-core processor, 2GB RAM plus 1GB virtual RAM and face recognition, which we believe is the first time this combination of features have been offered in Australia in an unlocked smartphone under $100. You will pay significantly more to see all of these features in other phones.”

“The AS5 and the other phones we will launch this year set us apart from our competitors. The AS5 is a compact, well featured but lower cost smartphone aimed squarely at the younger audience, the budget conscious and indeed anyone who wants the power and versatility of a smartphone at a fraction of the cost of what you will pay from many other manufacturers. It has a quality feel, two good cameras and many other features which make it terrific value at just $99.”

This new smartphone also brings smarts to memory use with the Octa-Core CPU and its ability to reassign any available ROM, creating an additional 1GB of virtual RAM, assisting the OS and apps to launch and run faster and more efficiently.

“The AS5 is one of six new Australian designed models set to release in 2023. Our customer support centre is also based in Australia and as a result of our continued commitment to the Australian market, I’m delighted to say we recently notched up over one million phones sold and we have also continued to export products to the wider Oceanic region.”

The AS5 forms part of a wide range of products, including over 60 different models of featured, smart, rugged phones.

“We are very proud of our 10 years of manufacturing good quality, reliable and low-cost phones. The AS5 very much embodies Aspera Mobile’s value for money ethos by delivering customers a lot of functionality and performance blended with good design and without the premium price tag. The AS5 essentially redefines Aspera’s value proposition at the entry level and also appeals to retailers who know their budget conscious customers want to stay well connected and have a great experience on their smartphone.”

The Aspera Mobile AS5 4G smartphone is NOW available from Big W, Ritchies IGA, Seasons IGA, Freedom Fuels, Trinity Petroleum, Mobiciti, and Personal Digital, retailing for ONLY $99.00 AUD.
