The phone is yet to go through FCC certification so I can’t actually give you the full specs. The device is dubbed the “Tecno AX8”.
According to the listing, the Tecno AX8 will be powered by Mediatek’s Helio P25 (MT6757CD) chipset, along with 6GB of RAM and will not boot 8.0 Oreo out of the box , but the outdated Android 7.0 Nougat .
Why should a new device boot Nougat when Oreo has been released, I’m quite unimpressed with this. However it may be updated later before the official launch so you can keep your fingers crossed and wait.
The only thing I’m actually worried about here is the price for such a device. Tecno’s 4GB RAM devices cost around N90,000-N110,000. This time it’s 6GB RAM and only God knows how much they’ll sell this device for. Probably around N180,000.
I hope it won’t become an ” overrated piece of metal” . The Tecno Phantom 7 is yet to be released as well, so I’m guessing the AX8 is going to be part of a new lineup of high-end smartphones.
And Tecno Please…?
Do away with those awful looking bezels, if you’re actually releasing this device anytime soon. What features would you like to see in this device, let me know in the comments.. I really want to know ☺️.
Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way
Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.
The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.
From the teaser, we supposedly got a few hints (not sure if this is the right word) of what to expect before it is finally revealed. And it has a couple of impressive specs I’d say.
Here are the following specifications from the teaser;
• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display
• Android 9 – the latest android version
• In-display Fingerprint sensor
• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM
• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight
• 3500mAh battery
I think Tecno needs to be reminded of what a teaser mean, because at this point, you’ll have to wonder how this is a teaser. Permit me to called it a spoiler instead.
What else do they have in store? They literally listed every spec we care about in a smartphone today. Well, only time will tell.
iPhone 11 – Is there anything left to announce?
It is still months before Apple unveil their next iPhone, but that has not done enough to avert the ton of leaks online.
The release for the iPhone 11 is set for September this year. Apart from the aesthetics and designs, not much is known about its specifications.
Although there have also been rumors of the iPhone 11 spec sheet, history has severally proven those type of speculations to be unreliable.
Here are the leaked photos. What do you think?
