Commenting on the debut of Lenovo smartphones in Pakistan, Sharay Shams said, “Pakistan is proving to become a very competitive and important market in the smartphone landscape. With the recent expansion into 3G and 4G networks, and the development of the existing network infrastructure, there is a natural consumer need for smartphones. For the past year, we have been receiving a lot of questions about the smartphone launch date in Pakistan and we’re happy to finally be able to provide consumers with our flagship smartphones.

Lenovo is world’s fourth smartphone vendor number one vendor in China.

“In Pakistan, recent research figures from the Pew Research Center indicate that smartphone penetration stands at only 3%. With the network optimization that’s taking place across the country, we expect this figure to rise significantly in the coming years, and Lenovo is well placed to nurture this growth with a wide range of smartphones.”

Select models of Lenovo’s smartphones will also come equipped with a range of DOit apps; with the award-winning SHAREit, users can instantly share pictures, videos, music files, documents, contacts and even apps with up to five devices without an Internet connection.

It wirelessly transfers information or even the app itself between devices at up to 40x faster than Bluetooth®. SECUREit optimizes and protects users’ mobile data with its menu of data-protection tools. With a single touch, it protects against viruses, spam and malware, and if the tablet becomes lost or stolen, anti-theft protection locks it down. SECUREit acts as a privacy guard to protect against unwarranted access to users’ private information and also makes the tablet operate faster by taking actions such as closing redundant background apps.

  • all their phones have mediatek processor even the phone S860 which is priced at 36,000. One could get Nexus 5 in that range.

    • This one’s with official warranty, while the Nexus 5 (16 GB) is 38k without warranty. Still I’d say the Nexus is the better deal. Hard to see how Lenovo plan to gain traction in Pakistan with prices like these.

  • Mushkil hai boss, with these phones and prices the target can’t be achieved I guess. Anyway best of luck to Lenovo and Tech Sirat Pvt Ltd.

    P.S: Aamir bhai, aap tu professional photographer hogaye :)

  • they can only gain market share through aggressive marketing and hiring some stupid bollywood celebrities for endorsements.

  • In the above article it is written 3% smartphone density.. I believe it is 3% of Samsung lovers only.. the smartphone overall category is expanding Thanks to qmobile for giving awareness (very important factor)… there is Bank Guard whose salary is meagre around 8k now he has a smartphone.. Price are high of Lenova.. they need to curtail to survive… Specs are nothing special..

  • Dear I want to purchase K-900 metal golden color,
    please arrange for me in karachi with reasonable price

  • well well well every one calm down a little bit. First of all forget about the price of the product because Lenovo is a Brand of IBM which was an American Company Bought by China later on. But the quality is still of IBM. It is very reliable very solid one and also fast. its battery timing are much much better than all the mobiles in the market in Android category. I must say if any one buy it once it is hard for you to switch to another brand!

  • best mobile brand, lenovo. i have lenovo yoga tablets 8 inch and also my laptop is lenovo flex 14. best brand ever i have used. now i want to buy lenovo S850 mobile… please suggest me place where i can buy it from rawalpindi.

  • lenovo should bring motorola phones to pakistan as quickly as possible. moto g series is great specially the moto g 2nd gen is amazing. pls bring that at an affordable price to pakistan

  • yar i have lenovo s850 yesterday my phone screen is blackout i donot understand what the hell is this but every thing is working only screen is blackout what todo any budy help me

  • no dought lenovo is producing best phones in the markey.
    but as a Tech Sirat customer i strongly recommend that never buy any lenovo or other brand which comes in Tech Sirat warranty. i have worst experience with Tech Sirat. and its not only me many people complaining whenever i visit their Rawalpindi regional office for my phone. Every customer who enters into office will be send back with new story and literally people abusing and fighting in the office. its been more than two month that i have submitted my lenovo k6note for minor battery charging issue. person sitting in the front desk office have list of lies to give next to next dates. and still i am phone less and visiting and calling their office after every two or three days. if any Tech Sirat official have issue with this post talk to me through my email [email protected].
    thanks
