EE are due to launch two new own-branded WiFi calling 4G smartphones for under £200.
EE claims the new Harrier and Harrier Mini are UK’s most affordable 4G smartphones, with the devices aimed at consumers and businesses.
The network says that the Harrier ‘boasts specs and features typically found on more expensive handsets’ while the Harrier Mini acts as a replacement for EE’s Kestral smartphone. The timely launch comes weeks after EE launched their WiFi calling feature, enabling customers to receive calls and texts over a home internet connection.
‘Customer take-up of our existing EE branded products has been phenomenal, so we’ve worked hard to create new feature packed devices,’ said Pippa Dunn, chief marketing officer at EE.
‘The Harrier and Harrier Mini are another big step forward and will allow even more people to benefit from a premium smartphone without the premium price – as well as provide access to a superfast 4G experience that only the UK’s biggest and fastest mobile network can provide.’
EE’s new offering joins Microsoft’s Lumia 640 and the latest Samsung S6 models in supporting WiFi calling, with iPhone models set to receive the feature in the upcoming weeks.
