This year’s edition of Jumia Mobile Week is around the corner. It kicks off on the 24th to 30th April. Jumia promises that this will be an entire week of great smartphone deals.
It is, perhaps, the biggest mobile sale in Kenya that promises exciting mobile deals on various smartphones in the market. This event brings together Jumia and various smartphone brands.
This is definitely an exciting opportunity for all mobile enthusiasts as they can grab their dream handsets at a reduced price. It’s like the Black Friday of smartphones.
This comes barely two months after Jumia launched a platform to promote local products. These can be seen as efforts to increase popularity and gain dominance in a growing market.
Jumia Mobile Week was first held in 2015 which means that the 2017 edition is the third ever mobile sales event by Jumia in Kenya.
Is the Jumia Mobile Week all about smartphones?
Well, mostly but not entirely. You can also get deals on selected electronics and accessories. Good examples are tablets and mobile accessories.

The 2017 Jumia Mobile Week will feature great deals according to Ms. Sanaz Abaie of Jumia Kenya. Abaie stated that the third edition of the mobile week will kick off on Monday and that customers can expect to get their desired items at crazy deals.
She added that customers should have their Jumia accounts set up so that they do not miss out on the amazing deals on the table.
This year, the company has partnered with Infinix, Huawei, Oppo, Tecno, and Injoo, Apple, and other brands to bring to you amazing deals. Jumia says that the objective is to ensure that customers get the best offers for phones and tablets.
