Tecno Mobile has been doing so well when it comes to producing great mobile phones. We have seen the birth of the Tecno Boom J5 and Boom J7 which was among the best budget phones of 2015, and just as we had expected, it is the turn of the Tecno Boom J8 to shake the Africa markets.
Tecno Boom J8 is available officially, and we have got some official specifications of TECNO’s second Boom range of smartphones – Tecno Boom J8.
Are you in the market for a budget-friendly smartphone that promises great multimedia experience? The new Tecno Boom J8 might just pique your interest. The Boom J7 follow-up comes with a huge IPS display, a 64-bit processor, more RAM, better cameras and a Boom headset.
Tecno Boom J8 is a huge upgrade to its predecessors, and was inspired by the hot selling predecessors (Tecno Boom J5 and J7) which were released last year. It has a plastic and metal trimming design.
Comparing the BOOM J8’s design and build to that of the BOOM J7, it is evident that the Tecno design team literally binned the blueprints of the J7 and started all over meaning that the device does not resemble its predecessor in any way.
