Samsung Electronics has unveiled Galaxy Note5 in Kenya. The company has also partnered with Safaricom for the distribution of the devices. The device which has a 5.7" Quad HD Super AMOLED screen represents both partners commitment to the big screen smartphone market, which Samsung introduced in 2011 with the original Galaxy Note. The device blends form and function with pioneering features, including the best screen technology, the most advanced camera for high quality photos and videos, the latest fast wireless and wired charging, and an incredibly powerful processor. With increased 4GB RAM, the Note5 offers the most powerful capacity and processing power on the market, enabling users to enjoy more seamless multi-tasking, keep up with messages, post updates to social networks faster, and enjoy graphic-heavy games without suffering lag time. The Galaxy Note5's design is inspired by the Galaxy S6 and ergonomically fits in one hand with a narrower bezel and curved back.

Safaricom Introduces New Tariff to Supplement Karibu Postpay Bundle

Safaricom has announced the launch of 'Advantage Plus,' a new post-pay tariff offering bundled Voice, SMS and Data services to supplement the Karibu Post Pay bundle. Available to all Safaricom customers who may wish to migrate to the monthly post-pay service, the bundle offers a choice of three price points ranging from an entry level KES 2,999 package to the more versatile KES 9,999 offering. The introduction of Advantage Plus will supplement the successful Karibu PostPay bundle scheme introduced in October 2011, which saw the number of Safaricom subscribers on the PostPay tariffs increase to over 700,000 by December 2015. The new service launched just a few days after Safaricom announced a fresh suite of new data products that will offer its subscribers an enhanced user experience with access to faster data, in a strategic move aimed at reaffirming its growing demand for data products among the core PrePay subscriber base. For the first time in the market, subscribers will be able to sign up for the service using their phones, without needing to go into a retail outlet. Safaricom customers will simply need to dial *100# from their PrePay lines or *200# from their PostPay lines to subscribe to the Advantage Plus Plans. Advantage Plus will offer subscribers increased value for mobile telephony services at rates that are significantly lower than market rates. Because of the exceptional value being provided by the Advantage Plus value proposition and the fact that consumers have three options to pick from, the package will be available on a 30-day basis with no roll over of resources.
