In consonance with its vision to provide the best telecommunications solutions, Smile Nigeria has struck a partnership with Lenovo Technologies West Africa in a bid to enhance the reach of its 4GLTE services and voice calls on mobile broadband.  Towards this end, the company has expanded the reach of its services: data, voice & video calls and SMS to the unique Lenovo A2020 (Vibe C) smartphone.

The Lenovo Vibe C Smartphone comes with the added value of a Smile 4GLTE SIM card, 2GB data bonus and 30 Minutes and 30 SMS on activation with the SmileVoice App.

The Lenovo Vibe C sports a 5-inch HD diagonal display, 5-megapixel rear facing camera and a 2-megapixel front facing camera. An onboard storage capacity of 8 GB resides in the device but can be expanded up to 32 GB using a microSD card, a Qualcomm Snapdragon™ quad-core processor with Android™ 5.1, Lollipop flavor as Operating System.

This latest partnership not only underscores the noble pedigree and innovative streak of both companies but also accentuates their determination to serve the best interest of their customers. The device bundle will be available across partner outlets across Nigeria from October 1, 2016.

A statement by Smile Nigeria noted that the company is specifically focused on the importance of partnerships of this nature to drive the penetration of mobile broadband in Nigeria and deliver on the end-to-end needs of the customer.  The partnership is designed to expand the reach of SmileVoice, mobile broadband services and enhance its benefits to a wider spectrum of the Nigerian market.  It noted that the partnership with Lenovo accords with Smile’s transformative objective of using the best and most innovative technologies to provide its customers with high quality, easy to use and affordable communication services in furtherance of its vision of being the broadband provider of choice in Nigeria that enables its customers to fully benefit from the Internet world.

As recent as July this year, Smile made a historic breakthrough in the Nigerian telecoms market with the introduction of the lowest call tariff that allows its customers to make calls at 8kobo per second to any network from within and outside the country at the same rate, using SmileVoice App. The SmileVoice allows thousands of Nigerians to enjoy seamless, SuperClear voice and video calls to their loved ones to and from anywhere in the world.
