According to Gazeta.ru, citing a report by Vedomosti, the operator Megafon plans to launch sales of used and refurbished smartphones. At the first stage, the service will operate in Moscow and the Moscow region.
Russians will be able to purchase used devices on the Megafon website. At the end of this month, the company is going to launch the possibility of buying used equipment from compatriots.
“A significant proportion of refurbished devices are showcase samples or new gadgets that cannot go on sale due to a small packaging defect”— said the representative of the operator.
MegaFon will accept, evaluate and issue devices. At the same time, the organization Smart Bazar will be engaged in a full-fledged analysis and restoration of smartphones in service centers.
