The bonus credit can be used for only Airtel to Airtel calls.
To officially launch the phone in partnership with Airtel, Business Head for Hand Held Products at Samsung West Africa, Jaspreet Singh, remarked that ‘there is a perception that low-cost mobile phones are not reliable.
Samsung is proud to say that our Chief Hero is not only cost effective and reliable, but it is also ultra-durable – and with great battery life, internet access and Smart Dual SIM technology- the Samsung Chief Hero is certainly designed with the African consumer in mind’.

This is the convenience we want to bring to our customers. We are particularly glad to be partnering with Samsung on this.” The Samsung Chief Hero is available in all Samsung accredited shops.
Designed specifically for the African market, the Samsung Chief Hero phone comes with a FREE Jelly Cover and FREE 2GB memory card. The Chief Hero phone gives users a whopping 11-hour talk time, 550 hours of standby time and long battery life.
