Consumers will soon be able to get their hands on the Kogan Agora mobile phone, which will have a price tag of just $149.
The Australian manufacturer launched its entry-level device at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013.
Android Ice Cream Sandwich will operate the handset, meaning users have access to virtual application store Google Play.
A five-inch screen gives owners plenty of real estate for watching movies, playing games, reading magazines and browsing the web, and provides 800 x 480 resolution.
Buyers will be able to store up to 4 GB of data using internal memory, but this can be expanded thanks to the inclusion of a microSD card slot.
Other hardware specifications include a dual-core 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM and a five-megapixel camera.
Shipping is expected to start in mid-February, with the potential for fantastic deals through the Kogan Mobile operator.
Owners might also choose to take advantage of low tariffs offered by other telecommunications companies by utilising the dual-SIM slots.
