Further empowering its customers in line with the UAE’s transition towards technology-powered Smart Living, du has announced an extended strategic partnership with Samsung Gulf Electronics. The partnership comes as part of the du’s journey to transition their Home Service portfolio into Smart Home services. This will be done through offering customers Smart Home Services, and marks the beginning of a long term strategic collaboration between du and Samsung.
