TECNO wins Smart Phone of the Year award

TECNO Mobile, the leading dual Simmobile phone manufacturer, last Saturday May 31, 2014 swept the two awards for the mobile handheld device categories at this year’s edition of the prestigious Ghana Telecom Awards.

TECNO’s flagship phone, Phantom, won Smartphone of the Year award, while its distributing outlet Mobile Zone, won Distributor of the Year award for the thirdstraight year.

The win consolidates TECNO’s ever-growing popularity in the Smartphone market locally as well as in and across Africa.

Already the fastest growing mobile phone brand in Africa, the award reaffirms TECNO Mobile’s strong hold on the market, which it has impressively led over the years. In line with its leadership status, TECNO Mobile has introduced the first 1.5 GHz 6 Core Processor hand held device, the TECNO R7, onto the Ghanaian market.

“We are excited about this. My team have worked hard to make this happen,” Maxwell Techie, CEO of TECNO Ghana said.

Mr Maxwell Techie, whose incredibly brilliant business acumen has led to the company’s growth over the years, has succeeded in making a stronger case for indigenous local business.

He adds: “This would encourage us to do more. Our recent successes in Africa are ample proof of how serious we take what we do.”

Officials of TECNO were on hand to receive all two awards at the event, which saw Ghana’s finest heads in telecommunications attending.
