Does it run Rwandroid?
It’s nice to see the Black Panther releasing some tech into the world.
What is the % Chinese content?
This is great news! I know a lot of consumer electronics companies are trying to move away from china manufacturing. This is a great signal to those companies that it is possible.
Entirely is a bit hard to believe. The chips and all? From scratch?
I hope the union works well in Africa, a stabilized central Africa is a really good thing.
Misleading. Algerian company ‘Condor’ has been manufacturing smartphones in Algeria for years.
But isn’t China colonizing Africa heavily with manufacturing and industry and shipping people over there to exclusively work these plants? Aka no Africans are allowed to work there? So aren’t these just Chinese good, with extra steps?
I’ll buy an african phone if it’s good.
I mean. What’s not to love.
My country colonized the shjt out of africa and asia. Asia got back up. Mostly.
Now it’s africa’s turn.
Always said. Want to support and develop africa? Don’t gift. buy, invest.
I’d buy it as long as it really supports African countries and not China.
Assembled in Africa, with silicon made in…
Not gonna lie im really digging the lion logo
I want to see this unit reviewd. I really like the logo
So is it actually *made* in Africa, chips and screens and batteries and all, or just *assembled* in Africa using components from elsewhere?
But wakanda phone is it?
The logo is pretty cool
I’m interested in this phone, but I would like to hear it’s been inspected for embedded spychips (due to the PRC influence in Africa)
Edit: lol, HRC/PRC
“Made in Africa”
(China peeks out from behind)
– Ni ha ma?
My bet is China is hiding in there somewhere.
If it’s from Africa, why is it white?
Absolutely fantastic news. Very glad to see an African company sourcing from Africa. They have all the raw materials – labor, minerals, know how – there’s zero reason for them not to succeed. Especially if made available outside Rwanda – even double these price points, they’re significantly cheaper than current alternatives.
Rwanda is on the rise. They have the goal of becoming the Singapore of Africa. They’ve got an airline, and this phone is a fantastic step as well. I’m excited to see what they can accomplish. Meanwhile, people still equate Rwanda with a genocide from 25 years ago.
Do they have a chip fab for processors and RAM chips? It says they produce their own motherboards, but what about the parts that go into their motherboards.
