Besides offering the flagship smartphones from Apple, Samsung and HTC, UK mobile operator EE also offers a range of own-brand 4G devices. The carrier's avian-themed lineup already includes the Kestrel smartphone, Eagle tablet and a number of WiFi dongles, but today it's rolling out two new LTE phones for those with an eye on affordability. First up is the Harrier, a 5.2-inch 1080p handset that features a 1.5 GHz octa-core Snapdragon processor, 13-megapixel rear camera, 2,500mAh battery and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop. It'll also join the latest iPhones and Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in supporting EE's new WiFi Calling service later this summer.

Because not everyone wants a big phone, EE is launching a slighter smaller version of the Harrier, unsurprisingly called the Harrier Mini. The device comes with a 4.7-inch HD display, 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 8-megapixel camera, runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and also supports WiFi Calling.

EE Osprey 2

EE's also boosting its range of WiFi dongles with the introduction of the Osprey and Osprey 2 Mini. The Osprey is designed to supplement your existing devices thanks to its whopping 5,150mAh battery, which can charge additional smartphones and tablets while on the go. The Osprey 2 Mini "can be personalised with one of three coloured 'bumpers' that come with the device," which we're sure will go down well with all the kids on campus.

Now, you're probably wondering how much all of these new devices will cost. The Harrier will set you back £199.99 on pay as you go and comes free on any EE 4G plan over £22. As for the Harrier Mini, expect to pay £99.99 (the same price as the Kestrel when it first launched) on pay as you go but will be free on monthly plans costing £17 or more. Both will be available from April 28th. The Osprey 2 and Osprey 2 Mini will launch a little later, arriving in "early May." Both include 3GB of data for £15 a month or you can buy them outright for £69.99/£49.99 respectively with 6GB included.
