Along with this, it will also be the first smartphone to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 657 processor. This new processor from Qualcomm is said to a bit powerful as compared to Snapdragon 710. It has also been reported that considering it is a budget segment phone Qualcomm has incorporated a slower GPU with less powerful ISP. The chipset manufacturer has also used cost effective 11nm manufacturing process for the smartphone.

MTN Night Plan Reduced - See New 2019 Data Plan 10

If there’s one thing I hate about MTN is the way they make some changes to data plans, they’re just punishing subscribers. With the MTN Night Plan reduced you may want to look into another data plan for your night crawling needs.

MTN Night Plan Reduced

Around August last year, the plan was initially reduced from 500mb for N25 to 125MB and from 1GB for N50 to 500MB. And now, the plan has been reduced again.

To be honest, this is annoying. Basically, you’ll now get 125MB for N25 and 250MB for N50. However, there’s an alternative . The Airtel night plan still offers you something better; with N25, you’ll get 500MB.

So MTN –

Xiaomi Partners With Jumia Nigeria To Compete With Tecno And Infinix 11

In an effort to take the African mobile space there’s a new development – Xiaomi partners with Jumia. They will have access to sell their phones exclusively on the popular e-commerce platform. If you remember clearly I made a post concerning Xiaomi’s plans to come back to Africa and now they have partnered with Jumia.

Xiaomi Partners With Jumia- What It Means

This partnership means Jumia will open the Mi official store on its platform and give Xiaomi access to millions of online customers across 14 countries in Africa while Jumia will be able to offer the Redmi Go (1GB+8GB) exclusively in Africa as well as other devices later in the year.

 

Xiaomi Partners With Jumia

According to Xiaomi VP –

We believe in working with companies that share our values and delighted to partner with Jumia to reach more Mi fans across Africa,” said Wang Xiang, Senior Vice President of Xiaomi. “The e-commerce model is part of Xiaomi’s DNA and we believe that working with Jumia will help us bring innovation for everyone across the continent.”

This partnership covers Nigeria, Egypt, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Morocco, and Ghana, and will gradually expand to other countries where Jumia operates. Most markets will be directly supplied from China.

 

Xiaomi Partners With Jumia- What I Think About It

In general, I’d say this is a bold move from Xiaomi but if they want to really shake the big boys here (Tecno, Infinix and Itel) , they should provide offline stores in the top 5 cities in the country – Lagos , Port Harcourt , Abuja , Kano And Ibadan.

Also they should provide excellent customer service and service centers in those locations as well. A lot of people are still scared of buying things online.

Last but not least, they should have a new branch Xiaomi Nigeria and the team should engage in massive marketing from billboards to digital ads. Personally, I feel fellow techies like me wouldn’t say they don’t know Xiaomi but if they really want to reach out to everyone , ads are a must and one more thing. Don’t forget tech reviewers not based in Lagos, Cheers.
