Tecno w4

Just following the launch of the Tecno boom j8 that featured android 5.1 lollipop, Tecno went ahead to push out the Tecno W4 and for the fact that the the W4 features android 6.0 marshmallow makes it more incomprehensible of their plans for the boom j8 buyers, but that not withstanding, a marshmallow update has been scheduled for the Boom J8.

Tecno W4 phone requires no upgrade as it comes with the latest operating system as at the time of release, Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The phone was “secretly” released by Tecno Mobile shortly after the celebrated Tecno Boom J8. It’s the first Tecno smartphone with the Marshmallow OS.

Released with the latest OS, the phone is surprisingly cheap; costing the same amount as Infinix Hot 3 phone which was released earlier this year.

Like other smartphones, the phone supports dual SIM to help you distinguish between work and leisure. The Tecno W4 is available in Black color and it’s of 16GB model.
