Philips has partnered with Redington to distribute the cellphones across the country. Redington is one of the largest distributors in India and even Xiaomi has partnered with them to sell their smartphone offline. Philips has also launched another low-budget device and we will have a look at that in our next story.
On this launch, S.S. Bassi, Philips country manager for SAARC, Sangfei Mobility said,
“Identifying the dearth in the industry for phones with high-end performance capabilities, we have introduced the I908 with powerful features across every aspect of the phone. Packed with Philips’ trademark Xenium technology, the phone offers excellent battery life and stand by time for its consumers. It is ideal for consumers looking for a smooth and reliable smartphone experience. The S309 on the other hand is the ideal phone for users looking for a budget smartphone with key features and reliable performance.”
