EE has launched the EE Kestrel, the first in a range of own-brand handsets, which it is claiming is 'the UK’s lowest price 4G smartphone'.
The 4.5” smartphone runs on Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean), with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. The device is available as part of a contract, or for £99.99 on pay-as-you-go.
The operator has also revamped its range of 4G tariffs, introducing new entry-level plans, starting from £13.99 a month, which include a 500MB data allowance and either the Kestrel or Alcatel Idol S.
“At EE, we’re continually looking for new ways to make a quality 4G experience accessible to all,” said EE chief marketing officer Pippa Dunn. “By introducing the UK’s lowest price 4G smartphone, and great value entry-level plans, even more customers will now have the ability to access the UK’s most advanced 4G network and reap the benefits it offers.”
