That explains why many of our phones can't work in developed countries esp in UK and US. I have known(it couldn't be a prejudice/ assumption) Samsung and I phones to work globally , but with this clarification, couldn't it mean some of Samsung's products might not work in some parts of the world?
If yes, is there a remedy without having to change the device?
Also, is it only the model we need in Nigeria that is being sold in Nigeria?
Let me just throw more light on this for all to comprehend. Using Samsung as A series as case study.

Samsung do manufacture a particular model and version of their devices for different regions of the world. There are ones for South-East Asian region, those for European regions, those for Africa and Middle East Regions, American region and they also normally have the one they term the global version.

Now in terms of major specifications of these different versions meant for different regions, they are always the same, and the only difference sometimes being on the chipset type but which are mostly equivalent in operations. Example.. Samsung might assign a particular device with Snapdragon chips for American region while the one with Exynos equivalent as global version.

But now here is the major reasons and how it pans out on why you see all those different versions for different regions; price variations is also a factor. Same Samsung phone made for Asian region and that for other regions say Africa has different prices, reason be place of production and distribution/transportation logistics. By so, you should not expect the price of a Samsung phone manufacturered in South Korea (Samsung home) and sold in Korea to be the same price in Korea with when the same phone has been brought to Africa.. Offcourse it will certainly be cheaper there than in Africa.

Now, there is this thing that Samsung does, when you go mistakingly buy the version that is not meant for your region, say for example you bought a Samsung A30 version meant for South-East Asia to use in Nigeria. Yes you can use it perfectly in Nigeria but it always regionally locked, so you have to unlock it first before you can start using it in Nigeria or other region that it is not meant for.

Though unlocking it to be suitable for other region can be very easy or daunting as the case may be. You will only need to use a SIM card of that region to remove the regional lock, by using it to make at least 5min of calls then the phone will automatically unlock and you can now go ahead to use any region SIM on it and use as you wish. Alternative unlocking method can be using the IMEI to generate unlock code, but with this you will have to pay through the nose before you can achieve it.

Same way if you get African version, you can go straight up using your SIM, and using your Naija SIM for at least 5min on it meant that you have also automatically unlocked it in case you want to use foreign SIM or travel to the region where it was not originally meant for, since you have unlocked it with your Naija SIM, you can now use other foreign SIM on it without hassle.

For the global versions it means that you can use any SIM of any country immediately and it will work.

Now just to let you know this. Samsung has about 7 phone manufacturing plants in 7 different countries and with the same standard. It might surprise you to know that Samsung manufacturers only few of their devices in their South Korea home based plant, reason why it will be hard for you to see made in Korea Samsung phones.. But rather Samsung plant in Vietnam manufacturers more of the Samsung phones that you see. Other plants in other countries are Yes China (original Samsung phones are manufactured in China in Samsung plant in China), Indonesia houses 1 Samsung manufacturing plant, like we mentioned, one is in Vietnam, we have one in Brazil, one in India, and one in Malaysia

How do u intend to hide the big infinity U notch that houses the front camera. Those that they normally hide easily are devices with smaller notch like water drop notches.

Well it's up to glo to change their frequency band. We can't continue to change phones because of them, even like and dislike certain phones because of them

does your a30 have 4g only option
Re: The Galaxy A Series thread by Bossman(m): 6:35pm On Jul 10
I think the version sold in Nigeria does not. The Latin America version does. See link below. Same thing with the A50. I have the Latin America version, A505, purchased from B & H, and it supports LTE band 28.

It depends on your location and how strong the 4G reception is. Here in Abuja, the 4G is on standby but very few times when it is weak, it drops to 3G.

When you are making a call or receiving one, I believe you know 4G can't do this. It changes to 3G.

What I see now is 4G+ since June 28. FASTER. grin
Re: The Galaxy A Series thread by Emmyk(m): 1:41pm On Jul 11
I miss not having 4G ONLY like I do on my Tecno. I used to switch to that mode when I don't want people to disturb me. They call and call and it keeps telling them 'User busy'. grin
