1. Wizkid as the new Tecno Ambassador
Wizkid is one of the most popular musicians in Nigeria with millions of fans and international recognition. That is why it makes perfect sense for Tecno to choose him as their new Ambassador. Wizkid has enough star power and influence to attract more loyal customers to Tecno’s already impressive fan base.
When asked why he decided to join the Tecno team as a brand ambassador, Wizkid said that he took a good look at the history and track record of Tecno and realized he and Tecno had a lot in common. Both started from humble beginnings, and through hard work and smart moves, achieved global presence.
Like Wizkid, Tecno is now creating opportunities for others that facilitate development. Wizkid said that both he and the smartphone brand are indeed for Nigerians, and that is the primary reason why the acclaimed music artist decided to join forces with the tech giant.
2. Tecno Camon 15
The online announcement of Wizkid as a new Tecno Brand Ambassador featured another important issue – the unveiling of the Tecno Camon 15 series. The new release includes two smartphone models, Tecno Camon 15 and Tecno Camon 15 Premier.
The Tecno Camon 15 and Camon 15 Premier share a lot of characteristics, but there are also enough differences between the two to justify the difference in prices. Both phones come in plastic bodies, but the Camon 15 Premier has an aluminium frame, while the Camon 15 comes with a plastic frame. The choice of colours is also different: the Camon 15 is available in gold, jade, and purple, while the Camon 15 Premier offers jade and white colour options.
The two devices have similar display features: their 6.6-inch IPS displays have similar 20:9 aspect ratio. However, the Tecno Camon 15 has a 720×1600p resolution, while the Tecno Camon 15 Premier has a more impressive 1080×2340 resolution.
Similarly, there are significant differences in the performance characteristics of the new devices. The Camon 15 comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage that you can upgrade to 256GB with a microSD card. The Camon 15 Premier has 6GB of RAM and twice as much storage – 128GB, which you can also upgrade with a memory card.
The Tecno Camon series of smartphones is known for its outstanding camera specs, and it’s safe to say that the camera setup of the Tecno Camon 15 phones lives up to the expectations. Both phones feature a quadruple camera on the back: 48MP+2MP+2MP+QVGA for Tecno Camon 15 and 64MP+5MP+2MP+QVGA for the Camon 15 Premier. The selfie camera is also different: 16MP ultra-clear shooter for the Camon 15 and a 32MP motorized pop-up camera for the Tecno Camon 15 Premier. Surprisingly enough, the Tecno Camon 15 features a 5000mAh battery, while the more advanced Camon 15 Premier’s battery only has 4000mAh.
Even though the launch party of the Tecno Camon 15 and 15 Premier attracted a lot of attention, no exact release date was given for either of the devices. We can expect the new Tecno models to hit Nigerian stores later this spring. You can also pre-order the devices directly from your phone. The Tecno Camon 15 will retail for ₦62,500, while the Camon 15 Premier will cost ₦95,000.
