Fero Mobiles has a large number of smartphones, ranging from the budget ones to the high end and flagship smartphones. Its lower echelon just received a new addition in form of the Fero A4001 (Aura 4001), a smartphone that’s as compact and budget as smartphones can be.
The phone isn’t necessarily low-end, but several specs like its 512MB of RAM and 4-inch display reveal that it’s targeted at the opposite of power users.
Fero Aura 4001 (A4001) Specifications, Review and Highlights
Design & Display
The Fero A4001 comes with a compact 4-inch display size. Its display is made with IPS panels and has a resolution of 480 * 800 pixels.
The smartphone has a thickness of 10 millimetres and weighs 110 grammes. It has a metallic design on the back while its other body parts are made of plastic.
Storage & Processor
The Aura 4001 is powered by a Quad-core Spreadtrum SC7731C processor with a clock speed of 1.2GHz. It has 512MB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 32GB using its dedicated microSD card slot.
Here, things go as basic as they can. The Fero Aura 4001 sports a 2MP camera (thankfully) with LED flash at the rear, while its VGA front camera is probably put there so you can at least chat with loved ones via video-call-enabled applications.
Battery & Connectivity
Quite in tally with its other specs, the A4001 packs a 1300mAh Li-ion battery which can be removed as you’ve probably guessed.
The phone comes with a Dual micro-SIM slot that supports 3G networks with a frequency of 2100 MHz at its best. You’ll be surprised with its Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac) and Bluetooth (v4.2) speeds.
The Fero Aura 4001 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. This smartphone is the true definition of mobility in style.

Availability and Price of Fero Aura 4001 in India, Nigeria, Kenya & Ghana
The Fero Aura 4001 (A4001) costs around N21,000 on most online e-commerce stores, but I found a cool deal on Konga that allows you get the smartphone with a free flip cover and a mug for N16,600.
