Tecno has, in the past couple of years, dominated the local market and recently, we saw reports that its parent company, Trassion, has just edged out Samsung in sales on this continent.
This is no mean feat and it can be attributed to various factors, prime one being the price to spec ratio of Tecno devices, especially in these markets where the disposable income is a little low compared to the rest of the world.
Now, recently, we talked about the Tecno Camon 17 series of devices, what they have to offer and their availability in the Kenyan market. But this came to cater to the needs of the mid-range segment of the market.
Today, the company is moving to release yet another device that caters to the needs of the young people in these market, persons that would like something trendy and capable whule not breaking the bank.
Cue the applause for the newest member of the Tecno Spark family of devices, the Tecno Camon 7P. This device is geared squarely at the Gen-Z in our society and it carries goodies that would be particularly appealing to them.
