The partnership between Nabd and Transsion will enable millions of Arabic users in the region to have access to the latest news and most trending stories, directly from the home screen of their smartphones. Transsion’s brand portfolio comprises leading mobile phone brands in emerging markets, including TECNO, itel and Infinix.
Transsion has enhanced its competitive advantage in localized technology innovation in emerging regions by consistently expanding R&D expenditure to improve user experience and create value for consumers. Currently, TRANSSION has a global sales network covering more than 70 countries and regions worldwide and has a growing presence in the MENA region.

It is in line with our strategy to reach Arabic audiences across the world and deliver valuable and personalized Arabic content for them.”
