Ghana’s leading Mobile phone manufacturing company, Tecno has launched its first dual SIM Android smartphone in Ghana.
Called the Tecno N3, the stylish and sophisticated device, which is nicknamed “the Smarter Smart Phone”, gives users a unique access to several applications including audio visual features. It also has an 8 gigabyte micro SD, which can store up to 32GB worth of data, as well as a touch screen.
Other features include 2G+ 3G network, WiFi/AP, google play, hotspot, google maps, whatsapp, facebook, a 3.0MP camera and 800 MHz processor among others. At an impressive ceremony held at the Tecno store at Tiptoe Lane in Accra over the weekend, Derrick Nkrumah, General Manager, Operations, reiterated his outfit’s resolve to roll out top of the range phones onto the Ghanaian market, adding that Tecno is positioned to craft this new phone to serve the needs of middle-income earners.
The N3 he said “is just a step into the smart phone world by Tecno”. Tecno he added will “within short intervals” produce new phones with “smarter features” beginning early next year.
The launch of the N3 comes few months before the introduction of another brand, which company officials say, will live up to the hype and give customers real value for money.
Arguably the leading phone manufacturing and retailer in Ghana, Tecno continues to prove why it remains a market leader, with the introduction of tailor-made products for both low and middle income earners.
The new Tecno N3 is the first dual SIM Android based smartphone by the local representatives of the Hong Kong-based telecom company.
