HTC Comes Back to Pakistan!

I am not a very tech-savvy person; however I am always searching for a smartphone that offers exceptional experience. This time around, I was eyeing at HTC Desire 626G. However, to my disappointment, there was no local distributor of HTC in Pakistan. Then one day, I stumbled upon a news piece announcing that HTC is soon going to be launched in Pakistan by Muller and Phipps (M&P). I was already excited and this excitement doubled up when I received the invite to the launch event of #HTCPakistan.

The star-studded launch was attended by Azfar Rehman, Nadia Hussain, Sunita Marshal and many other celebrities. It was conceptualized, planned and executed by String Media and Oktopus Experience and happened on May 25th, 2016 at Marriot Hotel in the presence of media and other socialites. After recitation of the Holy Quran, the CEO and MD Muller and Phipps, Mr. Kamran Nishat took the stage and briefed the audience about the partnership between M&P and HTC in Pakistan.


Mr. Nishat said,

“We are pleased to be associated with HTC as an Official Distribution Partner. HTC is a pioneer in smartphone industry with a wide array of 4G and 3G handsets. HTC is known for introducing high quality smartphones and premium designs. We want to introduce their complete range in Pakistan and will be committed to providing superior after-sales service to our customers with 1 year warranty. With our vast reach on retail level and multiple distribution points, we will ensure availability of HTC products in all major cities and towns of Pakistan”.

The products will be available for sale in Pakistan from next week.
