The Samsung Galaxy S20 Series is Now Available In Kenya

Samsung Galaxy S20 Kenya

Samsung Mobile has today officially unveiled its latest flagship series, the Galaxy S20 in Kenya. This series is made up of the standard Samsung Galaxy S20, the Galaxy S20+ and the Galaxy S20 Ultra. They are available for Ksh 92,999, Ksh 103,999 and Ksh 129,999 respectively.

Starting from Ksh 93,000, the Galaxy S20 series devices are not cheap. For Samsung, these are its flagship devices that come with the latest tech, hardware and software and this warrants the price.  In Kenya, we have not seen a flagship device from other manufacturers in the recent months so Samsung has as an advantage of being the main player in this segment right now.

You will be able to get the Samsung Galaxy S20 series from retailers countrywide and online through platforms such as GadgetsLeo. Prices will vary depending on where you get your model from.

With the S20 series, the camera is one of its unique selling points. The S20 Ultra to be specific comes with a 108MP camera and supports 100X zoom. This is not a feature everyone who buys the phone will be interested in but it is a nice addition that can hopefully get people talking about the phone. You lose some details with such zoom but for Samsung it is about showing the market and competitors what it is capable of.

In addition to the Galaxy S20 Ultra, the other S20 devices are positioned as desirable products worth having. The Galaxy S20+ is right at the centre of these devices. It is the perfect device for anyone who may not want the S20 but is not willing to get the S20 Ultra either. It does come with some of the specs you will get on the S20 Ultra but there are some key differences to set the two devices apart.

Here is a look at some of the Galaxy S20+ specifications.

“With Galaxy Z Flip’s unique foldable design and user experience, we’re redefining what a mobile device can be, and what it enables consumers to do. I’m looking forward to seeing the reaction to this revolutionary device,” said Dudu Mokholo – Chief Marketing Officer at Samsung Central Africa
