Mobicel Leapfrogs SA Smartphone Evolution with VX20 Launch

South African mobile technology manufacturer Mobicel recently hosted a star-studded group of local content creators, influencers, and celebrities to commemorate the launch of its pioneering VX20 smartphone at Insta Nation in Rosebank, Johannesburg.

The device garnered praise from all attending the event held on the 2rd of March 2023, each attesting to its power and functionality. The camera was the stand-out feature for the group.

Mobicel brand ambassador Bonginkosi Dlamini, popularly known as Zola 7, said: “The VX20 is yet another gamechanger from Mobicel. It makes world-class technology affordable for all South Africans and has the potential to empower up-and-coming content creators with the tools to establish careers in the social media space.”

South Africans Deserve Better

Upon launching the brand in 2007, the smartphone market was saturated with imported devices far out of reach financially for the average South African. Identifying a gap in the market for an affordable cellular brand, Mobicel was determined to bring accessible mobile connectivity to that market – at a fraction of the cost of established global manufacturers.

The company pioneers proudly South African, high-innovation devices that incorporate global technological trends like accessibility, connectivity, and design into a price-competitive package affordable to all in the local smartphone market.

“After 15 years of delivering inexpensive, quality devices to South Africans, the VX20 is our next launch point into bringing the form and functionality of top-tier global devices into a package that more people can afford. This is part of our ethos to ‘be more’, which enshrines our commitment to keep all South Africans connected through high-quality technology at the most affordable prices. This device will better enable South Africans to be, do and have more. More efficiency, more mobility, more productivity, and more freedom,” said Ridhwan Khan, CEO of Mobicel.

The Mobicel VX20 LTE

The VX20 LTE smartphone combines innovative technology with a sleek, modern design. The device is the first to boast Mobicel’s all-new 48-megapixel AI camera which intelligently optimizes objects or scenery, allowing for spectacular picture and video quality. Once created, this content can be uploaded seamlessly to social media platforms through the device’s LTE capability, bringing high-speed data to the user’s fingertips.

To optimize functionality, Mobicel has significantly upgraded the battery, internal memory, and processing power with the VX20. The device offers users 64-gigabytes of storage, a long-lasting 4500mAh battery, dual-SIM, and a powerful, lightening-speed processor which augments its overall performance.

Mobicel has also placed emphasis on design and appearance, wrapping a vibrant, glass-like casing to the back of the VX20’s 6.52-inch screen. The polychromatic casing blends light and color into a posh, vivid hue, bringing elements of sophistication to the outward aesthetic.
