Samsung is trying to make their entry level smartphones viable in Africa. The South Korean company has ironed out a partnership with Worldreader and Jumia to offer over 15,000 free e-books.
Worldreader is well known in the e-book world with providing African schools with e-readers that are full of great free content. The non-profit has been doing it for years and has finally caught the attention of smartphone makers in order to expand their brand, but also get their e-books in front of more users.
The Worldreader Android app will be pre-installed on the Samsung Ace 4 Lite, Ace 3, Trend Lite, J1, Star 2 Plus and Ace 4 Neo. Samsung has promised that the app will be regularly updated in order to provide the best experience. Incidentally, the phones will be available only on Jumia.
