Recently, VinSmart announced that it will stop developing televisions and mobile phones, and switch to developing smart features on vehicles and houses.
Vingroup said that VinSmart will focus its resources on developing electronic products and information – entertainment – service features (Infotainment) for VinFast cars. This is considered a strategic step to bring VinFast towards the goal of becoming one of the most convenient and smart electric car companies in the world.
The move of the largest phone company in Vietnam has caused many users to go to buying and selling groups to ask to buy back the smartphone models that VinSmart has produced for fear that it will be difficult to find and buy it later.
According to statistics of Hoang Ha Mobile store, the number of visitors to VinSmart booth on this system’s website from the evening of May 9 increased by 77% compared to weekdays.
Total traffic to all Vsmart models increased by 22%, the number of customers ordering was also higher than usual. The most viewed products are in the price range of 3 – 4 million VND, such as Live 4, Joy 4, Star 5.
Mr. Quang Thai (Cau Giay, Hanoi) said that because he was afraid of not buying quickly, he ran out of stock, so last night he went to the store to buy one, no need to wait for promotions anymore.
Right on the evening of May 9, after it was announced that VinSmart would stop making smartphones and TVs, he decided to buy the Vsmart Aris 8 GB RAM version, 128 GB memory, listed price of 6.7 million VND. The store has reduced to 5.4 million.
At 8 pm on May 9, Mr. Thai went to a phone shop on Cau Giay Street, along with him and his son, 5 other people also came to buy smartphones from this company.
According to Mr. Thai, Vsmart phones are good in quality. In addition, at the price range of 5 million VND, Aris is considered a “bargain” thanks to its high configuration and better design than competitors from China.
