Samsung Electronics’ latest premium devices: the Galaxy Note 3 Neo is now available in the Kenyan market.
Galaxy Note 3 Neo is currently retailing at KES 51,999 at all Samsung Brandshops and authorized dealer shops countrywide. It is bundled with Free 500 Airtime and 1.5 GB free data from Safaricom.
The gadget is directed at the growing uptake of dual-sim phones by Kenyan consumers.
With Dual SIM option the Galaxy Note 3 Neo runs on a 1.6 GHz quad core processor and 2GB RAM ideal for running multiple applications at a time without any lag.
It has 16GB storage, a Micro SD slot of 64 GB and a long lasting battery of 3,100mAh. It also features a dual camera (8MP rear+ 2MP front)
According to Mr. Robert Ngeru, Vice President of Samsung Electronics East and Central Africa, Samsung is investing heavily on R&D to ensure that customers get genuine premium mobile devices thus the release of Galaxy Note 3 Neo:
“We have realized that most of our premium customers are now demanding multi-sim enabled smart phones given the varied mobile networks in Kenya. We understand that consumers want more variety. A mobile device keeps them connected to work, family and friends, and many prefer to have 2 simcards to separate social and work life. By introducing this new addition to our Note Series, we want to provide our consumers with convenience while delivering premium features.”
To ensure that customers continue to buy genuine Samsung mobile devices, Mr. Ngeru said the company had launched a campaign to educate consumers on how to authenticate Samsung Mobile phones bought from dealers countrywide.
“We still urge our customers to take advantage of our e-warranty platform; an SMS based service that allows customers to confirm the genuineness of Samsung mobile products and also register for warranty. To authenticate your Samsung device, send an SMS to 22585 in the format Reg*IMEI number #, for example (Reg*359475637282445#).
