Safaricom has introduced two new neon smartphones to its Lipa Mdogo Mdogo program where customers can get devices and pay in installments. Customers can be able to acquire smartphones that they can pay as they use on a daily or weekly basis.

The new smartphones include the Neon Smarta and the more advanced Neon Ultra, which offers a larger screen and enhanced camera performance. Both devices are available from as low as Ksh. 50 daily at any Safaricom Shop or dealer outlet, or via *544# under option 8 – Lipa Mdogo Mdogo.

Customers purchasing the two smartphones via Lipa Mdogo Mdogo will enjoy bundled data and minutes throughout the repayment period. The Neon Ultra will be bundled with 120MB and 5 minutes daily, while the Neon Smarta will be bundled with 100MB and 5 minutes daily.

Lipa Mdogo Mdogo is delivered in partnership with Android, Google’s operating system for internet enabled devices. All smartphones on offer are loaded with a suite of Google Apps including search, maps, Gmail, and YouTube. They are designed to give users a great smartphone experience and empower them to access their favourite apps when on the move, to conduct business, get entertained and stay connected.

The neon range is designed to offer an optimal combination of screen-size, battery capacity, storage, memory and camera at affordable prices while empowering users to enjoy the reliability and wide coverage of Safaricom’s 4G network.

Lipa Mdogo Mdogo was introduced in 2020 to spur 4G uptake in the country by upgrading customers on 2G feature phones to affordable 4G smartphones. Since then, Safaricom has partnered with manufacturers such as Transsion, Samsung and Nokia to include more smartphones on the Lipa Mdogo Mdogo.
