Aspera Unveils $99 4G Flip Phone Ahead Motorola Razr Launch
Aspera Mobile has launched its new 4G F40 ‘Easy’ flip phone, which is aimed for people who want a simple and easy-to-use 4G phone that won’t break the bank.
The new 4G F40 flip phone is now available and can be purchased for just $99 at Big W, Harvey Norman, BP, Retravision and MobileCiti.
Main features of the new 4G F40 includes 4G connectivity with VoLTE data calls for improved voice quality, 5MP camera, 2.8” display, Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi hotspot, improved Bluetooth compatibility, SOS button for emergency calling, a large 1600mAh battery, and programmable speed dialling.
“With so many customers asking us about potential 3G network closures, and the cost of 4G chipsets coming down, the time was right to launch an affordable 4G flip phone, and so the F40 was born,” said Allan Robertson, Aspera Mobile MD.
“The feedback from our customers was that they essentially wanted to retain the experience they were getting on our previous 3G F24 and F28 phones, but also wanted access to some new features and capability that comes with Android, and of course, operating on 4G.”
One of the customer requirements for the F40 included customising the Android OS to be operated solely from the physical keypad, rather than a confusing hybrid keypad-touchscreen experience.
Others included retaining the popular SOS button on the phone’s back casing, maintaining Aspera’s trademark ease-of-use, introducing Wi-Fi hotspot functionality, improving Bluetooth functionality, and improving the camera experience.
“The F40 provides users with an easy adoption of 4G smart technology and the experience is very similar to the 3G ‘Easy’ models, but with an improved camera for picture messaging with family and friends,” Robertson added.
“The significant increase in battery size caters for increased power usage on 4G and programmable speed dial setting, including an SOS button for emergency calling, making operating the phone simple, safe and effective.”
