Aldi to sell low cost Android phone

Supermarket chain Aldi will sell a budget Android smartphone from Saturday, 2 November

Supermarket chain Aldi will sell a budget Android smartphone from Saturday, 2 November.

The Medion E4002 will retail for $129. The 3G-capable device has a 4in screen, dual-SIM capabilities and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor.

It also has 512MB of RAM, and includes 4GB of internal memory.

The phone appears to be a re-run of a device Aldi advertised back in July, though it was sold at that time for $149.

The Medion E4002 supports the 850MHz and 2100MHz 3G network bands in Australia, so it's suited primarily for use on the Telstra network.

However, the second SIM card slot only supports 2G networks.

The handset also has a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a VGA-front facing camera for video calls.

It runs the 4.1 Jelly Bean version of Google's Android operating system, comes with a 1500mAh battery, and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor.
