Zero-interest financing on smartphones at TEC
Global Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), Samsung has partnered with technology and lifestyle hub, Tech Experience Centre (TEC) to offer Nigerians a six months’ interest-free payment option on its latest devices – the Galaxy S21 series.
The smartphones – the S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra – were recently unveiled to the public at the TEC, Victoria Island, Lagos.
According to the management of TEC, equally important, interested Nigerians, who desire to get their hands on the amazing devices without burning a hole in their pockets have been offered a flexible way of acquiring them and paying later within six months, with the added incentive of not having to pay any interest. The offer, exclusive only to the Tech Experience Centre, is valid until February 11, 2021.
Head of the TEC, Chidalu Ekeh, said the offer is a unique one, in view of the prevailing economic constraints and the need to lower the entry cost of acquiring new devices for Nigerians.
‘‘We understand the need to lower the entry cost for new, cutting-edge devices , especially when you consider the current depression in the economy. This explains the partnership between Tech Experience Centre and Samsung to make this happen.”
Since we rolled out this offer, we have recorded significant uptake from many interested subscribers who are keen to take advantage of the zero-interest financing opportunity to get the Samsung Galaxy S21 devices,’’ she stated.
The Galaxy s21 has been described as Samsung’s MVP for 2021, or in other words, its most value-driven phone. It boasts a 6.2-inch display, new camera software and the latest chipset specs among Android phones.
On its part, the Galaxy S21+ shares its camera set-up with the Galaxy S21. It comes with a 12-megapixel f/1.8 primary sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus and OIS. There is also a 12-megapixel f/2.2 ultra-wide camera with 120-degree FOV. A 64-megapixel f/2.0 camera with OIS provides 3x optical and up to 30x Space Zoom. Selfie duties are handled by a 10-megapixel camera on the front. The handset is capable of recording video at 8K resolution. Also on board is a 4,800mAh battery which is only slightly larger than the 4,500mAh battery of the Galaxy S20+. It supports 25W fast charging.
