But he was quick to respond that the ultra pixel lens in Phantom 8 is built by Sony and the phone was built by over a thousand engineers and 15 global bodies in the last 15 months.
He stressed that since Tecno’s establishment in 2006 and its introduction of smartphones six years later, the brand’s vision in the next 10 years is be the most influential and favorable communication devices through delivering a differentiated experience to consumers.
For it’s popularity in Nigeria and not Hong Kong, Deputy Maketing Manager, Mr Attai Oguche said that Tecno actually grew in Africa and the decision to launch in Dubai was as a result of the Middle East Africa syndrome.
“We are currently in 20 countries including Nigeria,Dubai, Sierra Leone”
He said it’s Africa’s market share is currently,79.91 millions phones that were shipped.
Oguche noted that the phone has a full metal mid frame that comes in blue, black and champaign gold.
“Phantom 8 is a professional camera that comes with 64GB internal memory, full HD gutem glass, 6GB of RAM, 2.6 GHZ CPU, superior speed and performance.
“It has a Type Clight speed charge of 70 minutes and 40 per cent faster”.
Oguche maintained that Tecno’s global positioning is about thing globally and acting locally.
Also speaking Slot’s Marketing Manager, Mr Jonathan Uzomba revealed that Tecno phones contributes over 45 per cent to turn over, an indication that all the brands like Camon, spark, power and Phantoms are doing well”.
