Global smartphone manufacturing giant Samsung had its flagship brands Samsung S9 and S9+ officially launched at an Econet Shop in Borrowdale on Thursday night.
The public were eagerly waiting for the phone to officially hit the market, with much hyped camera and emojis features. The grey market is already rolling some handsets while Samsung strongly spoke on the need to have a Zimbabwe Warranty for support and service to the locals.
Speaking to David Clinton of Samsung on the sidelines of the launch, he reiterated that Zimbabweans need to buy from the authorized dealers and benefit from the service warranty, which is a full fall back service for the hard earned money, while he strongly insisted that they had not left the Zimbabwean market as reported.
It seems many Zimbabweans could not wait to get their hands on the phone as some quickly bought the phone on the launch night.
According to the official Samsung Distributor in Zimbabwe, the phones were in Zimbabwe for about two weeks now before the launch.
The phones are found at Econet shops for premium customers. The S9 costs $1599 while the S9+ pegged at $1828. They come with 25GB Econet Data.
