Orange is aiming to accelerate digital inclusionacross its 19 operating countries in Africa. The 3G Sanza is a smart feature phone that’s unique in terms of its low price and high functionality.
In April 2019, Orange launched a voice-activated feature phone in Mali, Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire in association with KaiOS Technologies and UNISOC. On sale with a voice/SMS/data package, it is a cost effective solution for customers.
Equipped with a 5-day battery life, 3G+, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, Sanza offers advanced features similar to those of a smartphone including access to the most popular apps such as WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google Search and Google Maps, not to mention Orange Money. Apps and information can be accessed by voice, which helps to remove any language and literacy barriers.
This low-cost 3G smart feature phone will soon be available in 16 countries in Africa and the Middle East. It illustrates Orange’s aim to overcome digital exclusion and help bring the benefits of technology to everyone so they can do more with it. As a partner for digital transformation across Africa, we make innovation a vehicle for economic, social and human developmentto pave the way for a future people can trust in.
