Samsung announced in a press statement today (27 September 2012) that it will expand its range of low-cost mobile phones with the introduction of the Samsung Pusha range.
Pusha is a range of feature phones, that Samsung said will be cost effective while offering reliability and the connectivity expected by today’s consumers.
Common features across the Pusha range include security features such as Mobile Tracker – which lets users recover their phone if lost or stolen, as well as SOS Message and Fake Call.
The Pusha phone comes with a 1.52” TFT colour display, 800mAh battery, and MP3 ringtones.
Its recommended retail price is R139.00.
As suggested in its name, the Pusha FM phone comes standard with FM radio. It also includes a torch light, and supports MP3 ringtones.
The recommended retail price for the Pusha FM is R169.00.
The Pusha 2SIM is a dual SIM device, which Samsung said has been specifically developed to meet the unique needs of consumers in the African market.
It features Samsung’s “Duos” technology, which the Korean electronics giant said lets two SIM cards be active and “always on” in the same device.
The Pusha 2SIM supports GPRS dual band technology, a 1.8-inch TFT screen, MP3 support, FM radio, and a 1000mAh battery, which Samsung says gives the device 11-hour talk time and 550 hours of standby time.
MicroSD support offers additional storage for games and music files, Samsung said.
The recommended retail price for the Pusha 2SIM is R299.00.
The Samsung Pusha mobile phone range will be available from mobile operators and Samsung Brand Stores, Samsung SA said.
