Nokia believes the smartphone market in Ghana is set to be revolutionised by the introduction of the first six-inch Lumia smartphones into the country.
According to Olumide Balogun, senior manager of product marketing at Nokia West and Central Africa, the devices will boost Nokia’s competitive edge in the phablet category.
The Lumia 1520 has a six-inch 1080p Full HD screen and an enhanced start screen with an additional third column of live tiles allowing users to get to their favourite apps faster with minimal scrolling.
It also has a 20PM Pure View camera with optical image stabilisation, oversampling technology and zooming capabilities which can easily capture and edit high quality pictures and tell better stories.
Both devices, Balogun said, were designed with the latest Lumia Black software – an update of the Windows 8 operating system (OS). They come pre-installed with business and productivity applications and unique new photography application called the storyteller app which allows people tell stories of places they’ve visited using pictures.
“The Storyteller App seamlessly merges two Lumia signature experiences – PureView Imaging and HERE maps, to allow users relive their photos in a new, dynamic and interactive way,” Balogun said.
