Expanding its 3G devices portfolio further as part of its mission of ‘internet for all’, Telenor Pakistan has introduced three new and affordable mobile handsets. The devices were launched in an interactive media event today in Karachi.
Apart from its superior 3G services, Telenor Pakistan has built strong devices portfolio including handsets, mifi/wifi dongles & wearables (IOT) that has helped the company beef up the internet ecosystem and facilitate 3G uptake in the country. With more than 7.6 million 3G subscribers nationwide, Telenor Pakistan continues to maintain its leadership as one of the largest and fastest growing 3G networks in Pakistan. The three new additions to the diverse device portfolio – that comprises affordable 3G-enabled feature phones to high-end smartphones – will help Telenor Pakistan reach out to a larger customer base making mobile internet accessible to the masses.
The new devices are named Star 3G, Smart Zoom, and Smart Max. Priced at only Rs.3,690/-, Star 3G (2.8 inch screen) features 3.0 MP rear and 1.3 MP front cameras, video calling, and a strong 1,400mAh battery. Smart Zoom (4.0 inch screen) is an extremely affordable smartphone that offers 1.3 GHz Quad Core processor, 5.0 MP rear and 3.0 MP front cameras, and 1,600 mAh battery at a price of Rs. 5,790 only.

“Ever since we started operating in Pakistan, we have aimed for empowering the society and taken palpable measures for achieving the same. While we expand our network outreach to connect the unconnected, we make the tools necessary for getting the best of our services accessible too. That is the reason why we have maintained our own devices portfolio that we keep upgrading regularly so more and more people are able to capitalize on the power of mobile internet,” said Irfan Wahab Khan, Deputy CEO and Chief Marketing Officer at Telenor Pakistan sharing his thoughts on the development. “Capturing more than 32% of Pakistan’s entire 3G broadband landscape is yet another testament to our commitment toward facilitating 3G uptake by providing best-in-class and affordable internet services to all. We stay committed towards building an ecosystem to advance internet growth in the country,” he added.
