The Chief Operating Officer; Mr. Robert Ngeru said that Samsung plans to partner with the local mobile phone service providers in marketing the new smart phone.
Those who purchase the phone in Kenya will also enjoy a two-year free Accidental Damage from Handling (ADH) warranty to cover screen and liquid damages to the Galaxy S4 at no extra charge, a world first from a device manufacturer level. This insurance cover will indemnify Galaxy S4 customers from the risk of accidental screen breakage and hardware damage from water.

“At Samsung, we have held successful talks with the regional operators who have accepted to provide generous data bundles for customers purchasing the Galaxy S4 as part of a joint effort to promote mobile Internet promotion,” Mr. Ngeru said. “Our market research recently confirmed that marketing such powerful smart mobile devices and failing to provide data bundles was akin to selling a new car without fuel or tyres,” he added.
With Airtel Kenya, subscribers making an early bid for the Galaxy S4 will enjoy attractive offers starting from Sh52,999 for the smartphone featuring a 21GB free data bundle. Safaricom subscribers on the other hand will enjoy a similar offer priced at Sh57,999 and backed by a 4.5GB data bundle spread over three months.
