Mobilink to Launch HTC Butterfly and Nexus 4 in Pakistan

After Ufone’s announcement of launching Galaxy S4 exclusively in Pakistan, it is now reliably learned that Mobilink has decided to take up the challenge by introducing two Smartphones in the country.

One of them is the Google’s flagship device Nexus 4 and other one is HTC Butterfly, we have confirmed with sources.

Price and Availability:

Though we were hoping that HTC Pakistan will bring the much awaited flagship device HTC One in Pakistan, the real competitor of Galaxy S4. But seems like — after the announcement of HTC Butterfly — we have to wait a little longer now.

The specs of Butterfly are great but I am not sure if this device can stand against Galaxy S4.

Mobilink is going to launch this phone for a price of Rs. 70,000 with one year warranty of Brightex. Mobilink customers will also get, 1 GB mobile internet for 30 days, a Pouch and Screen Protector for free.

HTC Butterfly will be launched in Pakistan on May 2, 2013.

    • irfan

      • ELI

        50$ tax ka hee add kia tha.. :P

          misconception that price if on playstore retail price is $450. Mobilink’s Price for Nexus 4 is very good

    • HolierThanThough

      This is 30,000 less than the shitty and pathetic S4. Don’t spread false information here. The subsidized price on Google play store for handful of countries is $350.

      The Retail price for the 16GB version is $450. Thats stll more than 43,000 while including all taxes and duties.

      This will have Android 5.0 next month as well.

      • Zohan

        so you are telling me that nexus 4 is better than s4? lol sammy look out you got haters

  • Imran

    nexus4 price is acceptable.

  • Quite reasonable price for Nexus4. An unlocked 16 gb Nexus device costs US$450 on ebay which is almost 45K. Also a Nexus device is way better than other android sets since these are the first to recieve any update and usually have a 3 year software upgradation life-cycle.

    • TecnologiX

      nexus 4 has battery life issues

      • It improved after the 4.2.2 update

  • Uzair

    Can they sim-lock it for their network?

  • Price still too high. I’d buy it if the price was kept to 40k max, but seems like everyone wants to charge a premium for a device whose selling point is its low price. Tax or not, I’m not willing to pay more than 40k for this device.

    I’m not even sure whether the quoted price is for 8GB or 16GB model. Can the author confirm this from his “well placed” sources ?

    • HolierThanThough

      Its 16GB version and no this is a steal for a model with these specs

    • Anayat Ullah

      16GB as mentioned in the specs.

  • faisal

    I got nexus 4 8GB from US in Rs. 32,500 last month. Also a new version of Nexus $ is coming in May and price of current version will be reduced.

  • TecnologiX

    Mobilink should have launched the HTC ONE or Droid DNA.

  • dam expensive as recently Nexus 4 price drop from 400 $ to 250 $ and its dam expensive
