Oukitel Mobile is a smartphone brand that is popular among mobile enthusiasts who are looking for both bargain prices and big batteries. Usually, such enthusiasts have had to order from international online stores and then have their devices shipped in. That looks to change though. We ran into an Oukitel Mobile Nigeria branded bus in Lagos last week. You know what that implies.
I just had enough time to take a quick photograph of the bus before we left it behind. But if you look in the photo well, you will see Nigeria-specific social media handles, phone numbers and an email address listed.
So, yes; Oukitel Mobile has established some form of official presence in Nigeria, it seems. Fans of the brand would hopefully no longer have to ship in those smartphones.
About time too. We could do with more official presence and support from other smartphone brands too. In the meantime, let’s give Oukitel Mobile Nigeria a warm welcome.
