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.

Tecno W4 is a beautifully crafted sleek phone with a metal frame to complement its awesome design. It has a plastic body and comes mostly in golden color.

The speaker sits behind the phone at the lower part and spans wide from left to right. It is positioned at the perfect spot to give you a good audio experience. Both power and volume buttons are pegged on the right side of the device.


This phone is fitted with a 5-inch touch display with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. With this touchscreen based on IPS technology, you could expect to enjoy decent wide-angle viewing.


A pixel density of about 294 pixels per inch should ensure images come out sharp enough.


Under the hood is a quad-core MediaTek processor running along at speeds of up to 1.3 GHz. This is backed by 1 GB of RAM, which somewhat moderates the realistic level of multitasking to expect. Onboard storage capacity of 16 GB looks sufficient and is also expandable by another 64 GB using a microSD card.

The most interesting thing about the Tecno W4 phone is that it runs on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, promising users access to the best of features and capabilities on the Google platform.


It is equipped with a rear camera of 8 MP which has been enhanced with an LED flash to give crystal-clear images in all lighting conditions.
