TECNO Mobile has this morning signed a partnership contract with telecom giant MTN Uganda. This happened as TECNO unveiled two new additions to its range of smartphones on the market; the CAMON 12, a budget-centric smartphone, and the SPARK 4, the latest in the SPARK series. The unveiling served as the birth of partnership between TECNO and MTN.
The partnership, we are told, will be customer centric. The TECNO Mobile customers who buy any one of the two smartphones will get free internet data from MTN if they have a registered MTN SIM card.
“At TECNO, we are excited about this new partnership with MTN Uganda. We believe our customers shall enjoy a lot of benefits from this partnership,” said TECNO Mobile’s Country Director, Shiva Zhong. “This partnership means a lot to us and it will start with the launch of our new upgraded devices; CAMON 12 and SPARK 4,” he added.
MTN Uganda’s General Manager for Sales & Distribution, Joseph Bogera reemphasized MTN’s commitment to enabling connectivity. “This partnership further demonstrates MTN’s commitment to drive our vision of delivering a bold new digital world to our customers. We’re partnering with TECNO to get more Ugandans online. We believe that getting and staying connected is helping transform every sector of our society from entrepreneurship to education, and everything in between. The experience of customers using TECNO will now get even better when they connect with MTN,” he added.
In this TECNO-MTN partnership, customers who purchase either of the new smartphones and has an MTN SM Card will get 100% bonus for any data bundle they buy, in the first three months of using their MTN SIM Card in the TECNO smartphone.
Explaining why the TECNO Mobile releases the CAMON 12 and SPARK 4 at the same time, Shiva Zhong said they intended for customers to have a uniform experience despite the different audiences.
“Each of these series attracts a particular target audience, therefore the need to satisfy both audiences simultaneously. This is also in preparation of the festive season that is coming soon, so this can be a gift to yourself or someone beloved to you. We know at the end of every year, customers are in search of gifts for themselves or their loved ones and I guarantee you that these a must have items on your gifting list because they are worth it,” he concluded.
