Tunisia is quickly becoming a leader in telecommunications across North Africa. Orange Tunisia’s announcement that customers will now be able to get their hands on Samsung’s flagship devices is likely to spur interest and growth in the country’s growing telecom sector, which appears to be back on its feet after years of political uncertainty following the 2011 uprising that ousted the former dictatorial regime.
According to the mobile phone operator, Orange Tunisia announced that it is now possible for customers to purchase the Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge smartphones for TND 499 on postpaid plans with unlimited on-net calls, “unlimited SMS to all Tunisian mobiles, and 5 GB a month of 3G Internet access.”
With North Africa having fallen behind other African regions in mobile offerings, Orange Tunisia believes that by delivering and offering the top products, it will be a litmus test for the country and how it will react to the ability for consumers to get their hands on the latest devices from the top mobile phone manufacturers.
For existing Orange Tunisia users, the company said the Galaxy handsets will start from TND 199 when customers renew their contracts.
Non-Orange users are also able to purchase the Galaxy phones without a contract, but that will run between TND 1,899 and TND 2,199, respectively, for a handset.
