Last Friday night the Samsung S6 and S6 Edge were officially launched in Zambia and the event was very informative (and had quite the drinks coming), but on Saturday we got invited to the official launch of the smartphone sales at the Samsung Experience Store powered by Connect Zambia at Eastpark mall where crowds seemed eager to see and feel the phones.
The event was labelled the S-Carpet event and gave the opportunity for one lucky winner to win a Samsung Galaxy S6 and over 200 prizes ranging from T-Shirts to data bundles were given away courtesy of Airtel Zambia.
As for the launch of product sales, we were highly impressed with the variety of product and accessories on show for the S6 and S6 Edge.
The Samsung Experience store has a limited offer running for the 1st 100 customers who will be entitled to a free Wireless Charger upon purchase of the Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge.
Connect Zambia through the Samsung Experience Store were the first to launch Samsung S6 and S6 Edge sales and have the smartphones available in white, black and gold for the 32GB memory capacity. 64GB is to follow.
