Tecno is one of the youngest tech brands among the ones that have achieved international notoriety – having launched in 2006, Tecno celebrates its 10th birthday this year.

However, despite the lack of market experience, Tecno has managed to surpass lots of more famous and established manufacturers both in terms of sales numbers and public acclaim. Since the beginning, Tecno has put focus on the South Asian and African market, and this strategy has proved to be extremely smart, as nowadays Tecno smartphones in those areas can rightfully compete with tech giants like Samsung and HTC.


Tecno doesn’t just focus at developing new smartphones, as the brand’s lineup of products is much more diverse than that. Although the brand’s biggest strength is Android-based mobile phones, you will also find tablets and even smart watches in their range of devices.

The smart watch is an especially interesting product, since it fully integrates with Tecno phones and performs a whole range of useful functions.
