By now you must have come across the term Snokor if you are active on social media. There was a twitter hashtag early November about #RockONwithSnokor and if you are not a twitter guy, you must have seen a Snokor Rocket Facebook Advert. What is Snokor? Snokor is the newest Smartphone brand in Kenya targeting to supply the best quality and most affordable smartphones to Africans and Asians. Kenya is the first country to launch Snokor in the world!! Nigeria, Egypt, Ghana, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Pakistan will launch it soon.
The brand Snokor has decided to enter a market full of affordable android phones where companies like Tecno and Infinix have been for a while. Well the Company Transsion Holdings owns the 3 brands.
Snokor will be the first smartphone brand targeting university students as well as fresh working guys with the most affordable products of the highest quality. Snokor here has a very big challenge as an unknown brand and hope to overcome this through word of mouth on the internet.
In the next three months Snokor expects to sell 60,000 pieces and 400,000 in the first year in Kenya alone. Given the specs of this phone below, it is perfect for the first time user migrating from a keyboard feature phone to the android world.
