In a bid to make the transition from feature phone to smartphone easier, Samsung has launched a new 4G smartphone, Galaxy M01 core, with Tk. 1,000 off for everyone and additional Tk. 1,000 off when consumers exchange their feature phone. After these offers, Galaxy M01 core will be available at as low as Tk. 5,999. 

“This initiative will make a big contribution in building a digital Bangladesh. The pandemic has shown to us the importance of Internet even more. In order to access high speed internet, one of the most important requirement is 4G enabled smartphones being readily available. 

Samsung is taking up this initiative while assembling their phone in this country, contributing to the growth of high tech industries. Also, Samsung has made Bangladesh proud in front of the whole world by assembling 5G enabled phones in the country. For all these I would like to congratulate and thank Samsung” said Mustafa Jabbar,  Minister of Posts and Telecommunications.
