realme and jumia

Africa’s Leading E-commerce platform, Jumia has entered into a partnership deal with realme, which is currently the world’s fastest-growing smartphone brand. Both companies today signed a Memorandum of Understanding to provide millions of consumers in Africa access to innovative and trendsetting devices with the latest technology.

The agreement allows for realme to have an official store on Jumia’s platform that would connect it with online consumers across 11 African countries, initially only Nigeria. Gradually, it will also expand to Kenya, Ghana, and Ivory Coast, and thereafter to the remaining African countries where Jumia operates.

Sandeep Narayanan, Jumia’s VP for Consumer Electronics, said concerning the deal that his company is “delighted to begin exploring how realme could grow and access the African market.”

“Both of our companies share similar values, and we look forward to a collaboration that would provide Jumia’s consumers’ access to best-in-class, affordable smartphones via Jumia’s seamless shopping experience,” he added.

Jumia’s partnership with realme will see the rolling out of new devices and an increase in competition within Africa’s high-growth smartphone adoption market.

Jack Zhang, the General Manager of realme CIS & MEA region, also confirmed this in a statement. “We are thrilled to partner with Jumia, the leading e-commerce platform in Africa, to bring our smartphones to users across the continent. This partnership reflects our ongoing commitment to technology decentralization by making technology that used to be only in flagship models to be accessible to more consumers. We believe the young generation in Africa will find our products to have the best side of performance and of trendsetting design, as it is our mission to scale innovation with the trend for consumers in the world.”
