Mobile telecoms company, TECNO has launched its newly upgraded music phone, the Tecno Boom J8 that would offer music lovers something unique that would boost their user experience.

According to TECNO Marketing and PR Lead, Attai Oguche, the upgraded music smartphone flagged off a new era of TECNO mobile devices which run on TECNO’s custom operating system, the HiOS. The unique user interface of the HiOS, improved app management options and highly optimised audio features, place the new Tecno Boom J8 at the core of mobile customers’ demands.

“The HiOS operating system, which gives the Boom J8 more room for intuitive functions and the phone’s highly optimised software features, have earned it impressive ratings from mobile tech analysts who partnered TECNO in reviewing the smartphone before its launch. TECNO’s Boom J8 might well be the best music-centric smartphone of its price range in the market,” said Oguche said.

Besides showcasing TECNO’s HiOS, the new Boom J8 flaunts other top-of-the-line features such as immersive 5.5” IPS HD touch screen, 13MP AF Back/5.0MP Front geo-tagging cameras with optical image stabilisation (OIS) and dual LED flash. It is powered by MediaTek Quad-core processor and stomachs 2GB RAM/ 16GB internal memory space.

TECNO Digital Marketing Lead, Jesse Oguntimehin, said: “The Tecno Boom J8 rewards music lovers with custom boom headphones. Each box of the smartphone comes with a free headphone but it is the Boom Max app, a pre-installed custom music equalisation feature that will totally hook mobile users who listen to music in detail.”

Managing Director, TECNO Nigeria, Chidi Okonkwo, said: “BOOM J8 matches the hype with premium specifications and material design. This music phone is elegant in every way, it is a sheer product of hard work and outlandish thinking.”
Tecno Boom J8 music phone is an upgrade on Tecno Boom J7 and J5 launched earlier part of 2015. The smartphone comes pre-installed with the boom player app, Africa’s largest in-app music library and the new Palmchat 5.2 social messaging app.

The flagship device will be retailed at N40, 999 across offline and online sales outlets nationwide.

“We are pleased to unveil our next generation music phone, the Tecno Boom J8 but that is not all we are excited about. Over the years, our team of software developers has worked tirelessly to create a unique user experience across all TECNO mobile devices; to tailor a user interface so intuitive that it truly embodies the spirit of the TECNO brand. TECNO remains committed to delivering the best technologies to end users even more so, to impacting our communities through projects that touch lives,” Okonkwo said.
