The Huawei Ascend Y550 is a 4.5-inch phone packing Android KitKat software, 4G LTE for fast data speeds and a rock-bottom price tag.

Huawei hasn't officially said how much the phone will cost but said that it won't cost "any more than £99", which converts to about $165 or AU$175. We'll find out more specific pricing, and where you'll be able to buy it, when it goes on sale later this year.

The display isn't particularly crisp, but it's bright enough for smartphone basics like Twitter and Facebook.
