Mara X set for debut, partners Google

In partnership with Google, Mara Corporation Limited (MC) is set to release the Mara X for the African market in the second quarter of 2018, reports ITRealms.

The Mara X, ITRealms gathered, will be a one-of-a-kind high-quality, smartphone as part of Google’s Android One portfolio, getting a software experience designed by Google to be smart, secure and simply amazing.

Mara Chairman, Jagdish Thakkar said Mara X comes with the latest innovations from Google, which runs the latest operating system, Android 8.0 Oreo with two-year OS upgrades; and the device has been optimized for the Google Assistant which is your own personal Google, ready to help throughout your day.

“With unlimited high quality photo storage from Google Photos and a carefully curated set of pre-installed apps, the Mara X makes sure African users have enough space for the apps they love. Regular security updates and Google Play Protect built in mean the Mara X is among the most secure devices available,” Thakkar said.

For him, across Africa and in other emerging markets, there is need for smartphones that are both extremely affordable and high quality.

“These phones will give people the ability to improve their lives through accessing information online and using them for trade and financial services” Thakkar said.

The Brand Director, Siya Chug, described Mara Phone as a “proudly African brand” stressing that Mara Group began as a small IT business in Uganda, and has since expanded to the globally recognized multi-sector investment group that it is today, employing over 14,000 people across 25 African countries and three continents.
