Jumia hosts quite a number of special events and promotions annually but one of the most popular is the company’s “Mobile Week” event. Asides Black Friday, the Mobile Week event is one which many people look forward to the most. And this is so because Jumia partners with popular brands and vendors to sell smartphones at an incredibly discounted rate for a week.
For this year’s Jumia Mobile Week in Nigeria, Jumia will be partnering with top smartphone brands like Nokia, Infinix, Tecno, Huawei, Apple, Gionee, Samsung, etc. to selected smartphones at unbelievable prices. The 2019 Edition of the Jumia Mobile Week starts May 6th and ends May 12th. If you are looking to purchase a new smartphone for yourself or someone else soon, you should check out these 10 smartphone deals we handpicked for you.
1. iPhone X
Although Apple phones will be sold at discounted prices of up to 20%, the iPhone X will only be sold at about a 4% discount — which is also very reasonable. Originally ₦280,000 on the platform, the device will be sold for ₦269,900 on the fifth day of the Mobile week promotion. If you have ever wanted to use Apple’s first notched-display flagship, here’s your chance to do so at a discounted price.
2. Xiaomi Redmi Note 7
On the third day of the Mobile Week promotion, Jumia would sell 100 units of Xiaomi’s latest mid-range smartphone, the Redmi Note 7, for ₦47,990 — a whopping 17% discount off the original ₦58,000 recommended retail price. Considering the specs of the device, plus the fact that the device is one of Xiaomi’s newest device in the market, this is a steal.
3. iPhone 7
This is yet another Apple product on this list. We don’t have a bias towards Apple products but when a retailer decides to slash more than ₦25,000 off the regular price of a product, we think it’s best to grab the product while the offer lasts. Jumia would “flash sale” 50 units of the iPhone 7 smartphone for ₦69,990 on the first day of its Mobile Week event at a 28% discount.
