EE unveil home-grown 4G smartphones and 4G WiFi devices

EE is set to launch two new 4G enabled smartphones with WiFi calling facility come April 28. To work exclusively with EE's 4G network, the two phones will be available on Pay-As-You-Go and monthly tariff plans.

Both devices will serve different purposes depending on your needs. If you want to get your hands around a premium phone with 4G data and WiFi calling facilities clubbed with  high-end specs, you can buy the Harrier for £199.99 on pay as you go or free on 4GEE plans from £21.99 per month.

Featuring a 5.2 inch Full HD display, Harrier runs on Android Lollipop OS and carries an Octa Core 1.5Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon chip to support long usage and your multi-tasking needs. The CAT 4 chipset technology will also enable optimum download speeds of 60 Mbps. Additional specs include a 13MP primary camera and a 2500 mAH battery or long hauls.

However, if you don't have a thing for high res images and prefer premium services on a moderate device, the Harrier Mini is the phone for you. Available for £99.99 on pay as you go and free on 4GEE plans from £16.99 per month, the Harrier Mini offers 4G download speeds and WiFi calling  along with a smaller 4.7 inch Full HD display and a 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor.


Along with the two new phones, EE is also launching Osprey 2 and Osprey 2 Mini WiFi devices offering 4G speeds for small businesses, corporates and the public sector. They'll be ideal for you if you run a restaurant or a utility shopping store, offering up to 10 connections at the same time.

To be available for £69.99 on pay as you go including 6GB data or free on pay monthly plans from £15 including 3GB of data, Osprey 2 is the more expensive of the two, and for good reason. It's 5,150mAh battery will afford you up to 15 hours of continuous hotspot usage and can also help you charge your phone or tablet by doubling up as a portable battery pack.

On the other hand, the Osprey 2 Mini, available for £49.99 on pay as you go including 6GB data  or free on pay monthly plans from £15 including 3GB of data, also offers 10 connections at the same time but lacks the impressive battery of the Osprey 2.

Having consistently featured as UK's top network service provider over the years, EE boasts the widest reach among top network operators with over 500 towns and 4000 villages in its coverage. The new offers for cheap 4G services would surely serve up a major blow to Carphone Warehouse which announced a new iD network to offer customers with flexible plans that they claim major network providers don't.
