Full Review: Samsung Galaxy A52 Price in Nigeria

 

 


Samsung Galaxy A52 comes with Snapdragon 720G. You should not forget that this same processor has been used a year ago by Xiaomi on REDMI NOTE 9S & REDMI NOTE 9 PRO RESPECTIVELY. I COULD SAY THAT THE ONLY DIFFERENCE AND ADVANTAGE SAMSUNG GALAXY A52 HAS OVER THE OTHER DEVICES IT'S JUST A SUPER AMOLED SCREEN DISPLAY AND THE IPS SIX WATER RESISTANCE RATING. 
Let me remind you that the price difference of the Samsung A52 to that of the Redmi note 9 pro is about 40k in Nigeria. 





***Galaxy A52 is rated as IP67. Based on test conditions for submersion in up to 1 meter of freshwater for up to 30 minutes. Not advised for beach, pool use and soapy water. In case you spill liquids containing sugar on the phone, please rinse the device in clean, stagnant water while clicking keys. Safe against low water pressure only. High water pressure such as running tap water or shower may damage the device.

Xiaomi Flagship Mi 10T Series Officially launched & Available in Nigeria - Full Specs, Price, Pros & Cons

 

Xiaomi has officially launched the Mi 10T series in Nigeria on 16th December, 2020. 


After its launch globally few months back, when I made a post about Best Phones Ever? Xiaomi Has Globally Released 5G Mi 10T Lite, Mi 10T & Mi 10T Pro With The Latest Technology Most Nigerians have been anticipating as to When other series apart from the Redmi note series would be launched.

Well, wait no more because the waiting is over. The following Mi 10T series were launched today in Nigeria.


1. Xiaomi mi 10T 5G selling at N231, 000

2. Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro Selling at N265, 000

The major highlights of today's launch is the pricing. The pricing is high though which I believe is due to current NAIRA-DOLLAR PALLAVA. But I believe with time these prices would be sliced.

The Mi 10T series are basically a futuristic devices embedded with 5G modems which is yet to be available in Nigeria.

A high end or flagship processors and a very high screen refresh rate. You will be in for a ride with the flash.

But the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite was left out during the launch and presentation today. I do not know the reason but I think the lite version would have been prefered to the likes of Redmi Note 9S, Redmi Note 9 Pro, Poco X3 NFC and many others. 

But all things being equal, hopefully the Lite version would go on sale also in Nigeria soon if not from Official Xiaomi Retail Stores nation wide, I can bet you could get them via Offline sellers on Nairaland.
