“We continue to redefine what is possible in a sub-$300 device. Australians are more aware than ever before that it is possible to deliver exciting, innovative smartphones that don’t demand top dollar or compromise on performance. In 2018 we sold close to one million devices in Australia, and this year we’re taking it to another level with flagship-style features yet won’t break the bank.”
