The smartphone has already been accessible in Nigeria, where people can purchase it for around $88 via various local retailers, in addition to on-line via Jumia (the biggest online e-tailer in Nigeria). In the long run, the handset may also be launched in Kenya, Egypt, Ghana, Morocco, and Ivory Coast.
