Tecno’s N7 Comes With A 1.2GHZ Dual-Core Processor, Tecno Shocks Us With The Price

Tecno N7 Functional

I recently stumbled upon the Tecno N7 while trolling the web. Tecno is really pushing its Android phones into the low-end part of the smartphone market and it seems to be doing great. The company sold over 20 million phones in Nigeria last year.

The Tecno N7 runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on a 5.0-inch TFT touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 400 pixels giving it 223 pixels per inch. It’s 11.3mm thin so it’s not something you’ll sit on unknowingly.

Here’s where Tecno decided to shock us. The N7 packs a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. We’re surprised too. The device also packs 500MB of RAM and 4GB internal memory. Extra storage up to 32GB can be added via a microSD slot. As a rule, Tecno has pre-installed an 8GB memory card with this device. 500MB of RAM isn’t so impressive. Seems like a drawback on the processor.

On the camera side, Tecno N7 sports a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash – capable of capturing images at a resolution of 2592х1944 pixels. It records videos up to VGA at 15fps. There’s also a 0.3 megapixel camera for video calling and taking pictures of yourself.

For connectivity, the N7 supports WiFi, EDGE, 3G, Bluetooth and USB connections. It’s got dual-SIM capability and only accepts mini SIM cards. Its 1600 mAh battery lasts 6 hours of music play, 17 hours of talk time and 300 hours of standby.

We’re seeing the Tecno N7 go for between N27,500 to N30,000 on the market. That’s between $180 and $200. For Tecno, that’s a great price point for this phone. It’s predecessor, the Tecno N3 has largely been successful due to pricing and we expect the N7 to do just the same.

We’ll do our best to get our hands on the N7 so we can post a review but for now what do you think about Tecno’s efforts with Android? Can they keep this up?

    1. Yes, great phone, but cannot synchronise data with my Computer System like other great phones. I bought one on on the 16th May 2013.

    2. Tecno should also realise that they are no more small masqurades in Phone bizz, so they should upgrade their Phone Manuals. The one that came with my N7 is to say the least, laughable! It does not have dept, pedistrian and too shallow to guide any one, i just abandoned it and depended on God and intuition to to master/familiarise with this great phone

    3. Finally they should do something quickly to develope software/Drivers for their products like Samsung and Nokia if they wish to consolidate on their gains in the market, or why do you think that consumers inspite of the prohibitive costs of Nokia and Samsung products still go for them? They have ready Softwares/Drivers that helpyou manage their products!!!

    Can I have reply/response/update on the above issues I raised thru my email? [email protected] or [email protected]
