The entry-level phone runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and comes with an 8MP camera, 4GB built-in storage and a 1.2GHz quad-core processor.

It will join the budget smartphone market with other entries such as Aldi’s $279 Baun Sphere, $299 Kogan Agora, $149 Nokia Lumia 530 and $179 Motorola Moto E.

Maybe never - I don't think I'll need a faster phone
Never - You'll have to take my Nokia 3210 from my cold, dead hands
