The busy smartphone market is set to welcome two more devices, as mobile network EE unveils new own-brand phones.

The Harrier and Harrier Mini will go on sale on April 28, with the telecoms giant set to offer the cheapest phone with wifi calling capabilities in the UK.

The feature, which enables users to make phone calls using a wifi network when they have no signal, has already been launched for iPhone users but the Harrier Mini will also carry it and costs less than £100.

The Mini is a smaller version of the Harrier, which has a 5.2-inch full HD screen compared to the Mini's 4.7-inch display. Both new devices will run the latest version of the Android operating system - 5.0 Lollipop. The larger Harrier, which also has a 13 megapixel rear camera, will cost £199.99.

EE has released own-brand hardware products in the past, including the Kestrel smartphone and Eagle tablet, as well as the EE TV streaming device.
