Rumor has it Tecno Mobile could be releasing its next Smartphone, the Tecno J8 soon. Not so much has been said about these rumors though and even Tecno mobile has not yet confirmed this.
My source from Tecno mobile however tells me the company, known for releasing Smartphones every now and then could be releasing the smartphone in early April. The Tecno J8 is the successor of the Tecno Boom J7 that got some good reception when it was launched in Kenya last year. Tecno dubbed J7 a music phone due to the impressive music capabilities and sound production quality and the J8 could also be another music phone from Tecno Mobile.
The J8 eight according to the source is quite an upgrade from the J7 coming with some cool features and could also be the first Tecno smartphone that will come with the new Tecno Hios Ui, Tecno’s own custom user-interface.
As I said Tecno mobile has not yet confirmed this but according to some of the features leaked to me by my source the phone will be running on Android 5.1, lollipop. It will also have a 2GB RAM, an upgrade from the 1GB RAM the J7 had. In terms of memory, the J8 will come with a 16GB ROM, similar to the J7.
The rumor also suggests the phone will come with a 13.0 MP AF Back Camera with Flash and 5.0 MP Front Camera with Flash. Remember the J7 had a Front-facing camera of 2.0MP and 13MP rear camera 2592 x 1944-pixel with LED flash, so this means Tecno might have decided to retain the back camera MP for the J8 and decided to improve on the front camera, possibly due to the huge competition in the market right now.
We are not sure about the prize yet, but of course I will be giving you details as I get them together with other features the phone comes with and also be confirming from Tecno Mobile if these rumors are true or not.
