Nigerian phone brand, Partner Mobile has a new device in the market known as the Partner Mobile PS3. It is the successor to the Partner PS2 that was recently introduced in Nigeria. The new Partner PS3 was launched to commemorate the company one year anniversary.

Partner Mobile PS3 Display and Design
The device comes with a gorgeous 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels. The front panel is protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to prevent accidental scratches though this will not win any award when it comes to the toughest screen protection glass. It is available in the fashionable colour of Pink, Black and Gold.

Also the back houses a dual camera set up which is quite similar to the iPhone 7 Plus.
