Samsung has made it clear they are committed to expanding their product range in developing markets with the recent launch of the Galaxy Note II in Cape Town.
The launch, which was the final leg of a world tour for the new Galaxy Note II, described by many as a Phablet, touched down in Cape Town last week amidst great fanfare.
There has been anticipation about the launch of the Galaxy Note II in African countries, as mobile devices are becoming increasingly popular tools to access the internet.
The Note II has a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and features a 14cm HD display, but despite the added processing power, still manages to be narrower than its successful predecessor, which sold over 10 million units worldwide.
Samsung has been pushing its Build For Africa programme, saying that the company produces devices specifically for the continent, given the lack of infrastructure and social problems.
