TECNO Mobile officially launched a few of its smartphones in Pakistan at an event in Lahore yesterday. We got our hands on with all of them.
Lower and mid-range devices are the TECNO W3, W5, L8 Lite and Camon C7. TECNO has not revealed the prices of any however these could range from PKR. 7,000/- to PKR. 20,000/-
We have seen the devices closely and here are the quick hands-on with all of them. You can check them below in order from lowest to upper range models according to their specifications. We have also mentioned the estimated price of the handsets. The prices are not estimated after their specifications, but the range we were told at the event.
W3 is the lowest featured device among the recently launched TECNO devices. Running Android 6 Marshmallow the phone has 5-inch display with the old FWVGA resolution that probably no one needs today. The phone is powered by 1.3GHz quad-core processor and 8GB internal storage with 1GB RAM.
The phone features a 5 megapixel rear facing camera with dual-LED flash and a 2 megapixel camera on the front side. The phone supports only 3G connectivity with 2500 mAh battery.
The phone is expected to cost around PKR. ~8,500/-
TECNO L8 Lite
Second we put down here is the L8 Lite that has a 5-inch display with 720p resolution. It’s powered by the similar processor as above – 1.3GHz quad-core. The phone features 16GB of internal storage and 1GB of RAM.
L8 Lite is backed by a large 4000mAh battery and runs Android 6.0 Nougat. It features an 8MP rear camera and 2MP front facing camera.
L8 Lite is expected to cost PKR. ~12,000/-
TECNO W5 has a 5.5-inch display with HD resolution of 720p. Powered by the same 1.3GHz quad-core processor, the phone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The phone has 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
W5 features a 13 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash on the back while on the front it has a 5 megapixel camera also with an LED flash. The phone is packed with a 3000mAh battery a little bigger than W3.
In addition, the phone features 4G/LTE connectivity and fingerprint scanner as well. The phone is expected to cost around PKR. ~17,000/-
TECNO Camon C7
Camon C7 is supposed to attract customers for its camera, specially the front facing. The phone features a big 13 megapixel camera on the front side along with an LED flash. On the back, the phone also has a 13 megapixel autofocus camera with a dual-LED flash.
The phone features a 5-inch display with HD resolution which should be considered better than W5 based on its pixel density. The phone is powered, once again, the similar 1.3GHz quad-core processor. Along side, the phone features 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
Where the phone stands above the W5, it lacks features like a fingerprint scanner and most importantly the LTE connectivity. Camon C7 only features up to 3G connectivity.
We tag the price of this specific phone as around PKR. ~17,000/- as well.
Along side the above lower upper range devices, TECNO also launched an upper mid-range smartphones Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus.
