Until recently, the Phantom Z was the only Tecno device running Kitkat — Android’s latest OS. A few days ago, Tecno finally released a mid-range device running Kitkat. It’s the Tecno F6. The device which is a follow up to the F5 (which received good reception from many users) seems to be an upgrade addressing issues that the F5 had. The Tecno F6 specifications include a 4.7′ HD IPS display, a quad-core processor, a 2000 mAh battery, an 8MP camera, 1GB RAM and 16GB ROM.
Tecno has been releasing a deice almost every 2 months. As the first mid range device running Kitkat, the assumption is that all the devices from now on will run Kitkat and will also have updates to the latest Operating system. Tecno’s edge has remained quality devices at affordable prices and this has so far worked.
Price and Availability
We contacted the Tecno Uganda offices about the availability and price of the device and they confirmed that the device will arrive in about two weeks in Uganda or in other Tecno prime markets like Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and that they couldn’t accurately tell what the price will be. We shall bring you a complete review of the device as soon as we can get our hands on it.
