Huawei signs deal for phone retail in Oman
ABT to distribute Huawei's mobile handset range in the Sultanate
Huawei has signed a distribution deal to sell its mobile phones direct to end users in Oman.
The Chinese vendor will partner with ABT, a professional managed retail, wholesale, trading and distribution company in Oman, to make Huawei's full range of consumer handsets available to the public, either directly or indirectly.
The phones were previously only available through telecom operators in the Sultanate.
Consumers will also be able to use nine Huawei-authorized service centres across the country in addition to 25 collection centres supported through ABT.
"Although a young brand, Huawei's consumer device portfolio has grown rapidly over the past several years in the Middle East, which is in no small part a result of establishing ties with renowned local partners such as ABT," said Ashraf Fawakherji, vice president of Huawei Device Middle East. "With a commitment to outstanding customer satisfaction, we are excited to work with ABT in writing the next chapter of Huawei's legacy within Oman and offering local consumers access to a world of new communication possibilities."
Huawei has also announced availability of its Ascend P2, the world's fastest 4G LTE smartphone, and the Ascend Mate, the world's largest screen smartphone, in Oman.
"Huawei has shown great ambitions in offering unique smart devices to customers around the global," said Pradeep Tripathi, Group CEO of ABT. "We at ABT are very excited to start our collaboration with Huawei as we together work to bring the latest global technology to local customers across Oman."
