Samsung J7 Pro Tops Egypt Smartphone Market

by Neil Mawston | Jun 26, 2018

Egypt is by far the largest smartphone market in North Africa. Carriers, such as Orange and Vodafone, have long targeted the country for smartphone growth. Egypt today still has relatively low smartphone penetration, and it has become an attractive market for device manufacturers such as Samsung.

In Q1 2018, Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro was the number one best-selling smartphone model across Egypt. A blend of good design, keen pricing and widespread retail availability makes this a popular 4G handset. Following up in second position is the Infinix Note 4, a 5.7-inch model with a MediaTek processor, confirming Transsion Group's well-known presence in the African region.

Surprisingly, there are no Apple models in the top-10 rankings for Egypt. The iPhone's high price and limited distribution channels make it a tough sell in North Africa.
