Though Aldi has stocked Bauhn-branded phones before, this is the first time Aldi will be selling a phone after the launch of Aldi Mobile, according to Ausdroid.
As a "Special Buy" option, Aldi will be selling a Medion E4002 4-inch smartphone powered by Android 4.1 (Jellybean) for $149.
Though we wouldn't sit it next to an iPhone or Galaxy 4S, the handset has reasonable specs for its price, including a the dual-SIM card slot, dual-core 1GHz CPU, 512MB RAM, WVGA touchscreen with 800×480 resolution, 1500mAh battery a 5MP rear-facing camera, 4GB internal storage and a microSD card slot for up to 32GB expansion.
The phone will come with a USB cable, AC adapter and stereo headset, but Aldi will also be selling an accessory pack for $14.99 to boost the handset's street cred. The pack includes a USB car charger, "high-quality in-ear earphones" and a "leather-look" pouch.
The tablet rerun
Aldi will also be selling the Bauhn WL-101QGC 10-inch tablet as a "Special Buy" from this Saturday for $249. This is the second time that Aldi is offering this tablet for sale this year.
The 3G, 10.1-inch tablet has an IPS display with a resolution of 1280x800, 4GB of internal memory, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. Also running on Android 4.1, the tablet is powered by 1GB of RAM and comes packaged with a 16GB microSD card, boosting its tiny 4GB internal storage.
Again, Aldi is selling an accessory pack for $19.99 and includes earphones, a USB charger, car charger and case.
