All VinSmart products are on a discount at the systems of CellphoneS, FPT Shop, and Hoang Ha Mobile. The most expensive Vsmart device, the Aris Pro is being sold at an average VND5.6 million ($234.50), VND1 million ($43.50) cheaper than last month and VND3 million ($130.43) cheaper than its initial price. Meanwhile, the Joy 3, Joy 4, Live 4, and Active 3 are discounted by VND1-1.5 million ($43.50-65.22) compared to their original prices.
In general, the price of Vsmart’s 15 devices was reduced by around 30 per cent compared to their initial price.
“The discount programme is attractive and draws in people who want to experience the 'Made-in-Vietnam' smartphones. The sales of VinSmart devices has doubled since the discount programme. We forecast that our entire stock of Vsmart mobile phones will be sold in the next two or three months,” Lac Huy, a representative of the CellphoneS chain said.
In May, Vingroup unveiled plans for its subsidiary VinSmart to halt the manufacturing of televisions and smartphones to concentrate on developing electronic products and other components for VinFast cars.
After the halt of production of smartphones and televisions, a part of the factory will be used for outsourced processing for partners and the rest will be expanded to produce new kinds of products.
Besides, in spite of the halt, the company maintains warranty, repair, and customer care until the products are no longer used. At the same time, a part of the phone software design department will continue to upgrade and update Vsmart phones.
