HMD Global unveiled the Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2 in the country earlier this week as successors to the Nokia 7.1 and Nokia 6.1 from last year. The two phones, according to the company’s local branch, opened for pre-orders on Tuesday this week through various partners, including Jumia Mall.

As of this writing, though, neither the Nokia 7.2 nor Nokia 6.2 is available to pre-order on Jumia Mall. The pair is also non-existent on Safaricom’s Masoko, another player that is expected to stock the phones.

The best Jumia Mall was able to do, at least, is to include the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 in the banner shared below, but the phones are MIA.

Nevertheless, the two are going for Kshs 24,000 for the Nokia 6.2 and Kshs 34,000 for the Nokia 7.2. The latter has already stopped by the CA for certification with model numbers TA-1196 for the dual-SIM variant and TA-1181 for the single-SIM variant. Granted, the latter will be sold through Safaricom.

Although unconfirmed, the Nokia 6.2 is likely to come in a similar configuration in the country as well, unless Safaricom, the most likely destination for the single-SIM variant, isn’t planning to carry the device. As for the specs you get, check the respective links below.

It’s worth noting that while the official price of the Nokia 7.2 is Kshs 34,000, we won’t be surprised if it ends up on Safaricom with a slightly higher price tag. Also, we may see cases of discounted prices from other retailers on Jumia.

The story shouldn’t be different with the Nokia 6.2, although, again, we still don’t know if it will be sold through Safaricom as a single-SIM model. But what we do know is that both phones still come with Googles Android One blessing, meaning you are guaranteed at least two OS upgrades beginning with Android 10 and up to three years of regular Android security updates.

Haraka Haraka app to link customers with service providers

Published

on

Loading...

A new App dubbed “Haraka Haraka” has today been unveiled in Kenya to help customers find the right service providers in their current location within a specified range of choice.

The platform was invented by three former Meru University of Science and technology students and with the app, they seek to make it easier for people to find services such as a plumber, retailers, shops and house agents that have been difficult to get physically.

The team, Mr Kelvin Muinde, Mr Pius Momanyi Nyachio and Mrs Naum Mutie said there are currently about 3,500 users who are potential clients and service providers on the platform who include carpenters, hairdressers, plumbers and mechanics, and more.

“We are taking away the burden of searching for experienced and reliable professional businesses in a hassle-free model to deliver critical services to individuals who are in need of their specific location,” said Pius Momanyi Nyachio who is the Marketing Manager.

Mr Kelvin Muinde, who is the head of the project said the idea to start Haraka Haraka was initiated out of his observance of people having difficulty in finding a reliable service in an area that they are not well conversant with.

“The biggest challenge customers face is finding the right service providers at any area, mostly if you are not familiar, most people end up getting poor services that cost them time and resources,” he said.

To find any service or to register as a service provider, individuals are requested to first download the Haraka Haraka App on Google and register where later one can choose a range between 100m to 30km to find the service they are in need of.

The app also comes with an option of reviewing and rating a service provider which acts as an advantage to next service seekers enabling easy referrals to new clients.

‘’The registration to the app is free for both users and professionals,’’ said Mr Kelvin Muinde. The company’s aim is to hit 10,000 users by the end of this year. Ideally, they plan to have a maximum of 30,000 professionals on the platform.
