Old is new again with Aspera Mobile launching a new, customised $99 4G F40 flip phone. They are targeting consumers that want a simple, easy to use and functional 4G phone.
The Aspera F40’s features include:
- 4G connectivity with VoLTE data calls
- 5MP camera
- 2.8” display
- WiFi and WiFi hotspot
- Emergency calling
- Large 1600mAh battery
- 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. 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.”Allan Robertson – Aspera Mobile MD
The Aspera team take customer feedback seriously, and you can see this in the F40 design:
- Android OS operated from only physical keys
- SOS button on the back of the casing
- Wi-Fi hotspot and more…
“The F40 means WiFi hotspot is available for the first time on our ‘Easy’ phones. Also with the new phone Bluetooth has been updated for improved compatibility with more vehicles and other devices, there’s a higher resolution 5MP camera and higher call quality with VoLTE.”Allan Robertson – Aspera Mobile MD
The Aspera F40 design considered a range of aspects, none more important than the existing ‘Easy’ Mobile customers that enjoyed the F24 and F28 experience.
The Aspera 4G F40 flip phone is already available from retailers such as Big W, Harvey Norman, BP, Retravision and MobileCiti.
