Infinix mobility is to officially launch in Uganda on 21st running upto 25th November when official sales go live, the very day designated as Black Friday by leading online shopping portals that include Jumia and Kilimall. However it is to launch on the latter after scouring an exclusive deal with them and amongst the soon to be listed handsets, expect the Hot 4 and the Note 3 (this has been teased often on their social accounts)
However the brand doesn’t stop at the Hot and Note series, it also has the Zero and Hot S series all running its XOS custom Android overlay. This is the EMUI to Huawei, TouchWiz to Samsung and MiUI to Xiaomi. Infinix promises these other models to follow thereafter but offered no time frame for this to happen.
Black Friday is characterised with insane discounts but Infinix was tight lipped on how much its phones will sell for and at what discount. We anticipate Infinix to honor the Black Friday norm and offer discounts regardless since they decided to launch on D Day.
Infinix is accustomed to selling through online channels, something that manages it to sell its beef specced handsets at cutthroat prices through flash sales. This somewhat limits their availability and whoever comes first gets served first, something that normally arouses customers’ curiosity and translates into increased demand while at the same time creating hype for the brand.
A similar undertaking might await its Black Friday launch. By this writing, the Note 3 is already listed on Kilimall but with a disclaimer that notifies interested parties that they should apply for an arrival notice since it is out of stock.
