One of the most sought-after itel phones in Zimbabwe is the itel P38 Pro. This is the latest flagship phone for the itel brand. This article breaks down the prices you can find locally, its features, specs, and Pindua’s recommendation on this phone.
Itel is no doubt a budget phone brand. The whole idea of this brand is to make phones with decent features affordable to more people. The same company that makes this brand also makes the Tecno and Infinix which are higher-priced phones and therefore generally better.
What is the itel P38 Pro 4G
This phone is a successor to the Itel P37 Pro. It was released in May 2022 which makes it a very recent phone. Notable features on the phone are its large screen size which is 6.8 inches, bigger storage at 64GB, and 4G LTE. It also has the biggest battery of any Itel phone at 6000 mAh.
The only thing not so good on the phone is the RAM, which is just 2GB. But again, the typical price of below US $120 means there are some sacrifices made.
Expected retail prices for the itel P38 Pro in Zimbabwe
In Zimbabwe, you must expect a brand new itel P38 Pro to be priced anyway between US $115 and US $130.
If the price is below $110, then be careful. It’s possible you may not be buying a brand new phone, or worse, someone is trying to sell you something else.
If the price is above $130, then you may need to shop around for a better deal.
Ofcourse the best thing is to buy from a reputable official itel retailer. In Zimbabwe, you will find itel Home, Mobile Express, T-Mobile and others.
Pindula is also an official itel retailer and you can the P38 Pro for $115 directly on this link: https://zero.pindula.co.zw/market/itel-p38-pro-64gb-2g-ram-22/
