In a bid to produce better devices in a heavily crowded market, TECNO launched a host of mobile products last year in the music, camera and premium all-purpose smartphone categories. The TECNO BOOM J7 music phone was TECNO’s flagship music phone, hosting the industry’s first highly optimized BOOM audio stereos technology for budget smartphones.


The TECNO BOOM J7 which runs on android 4.4 Kitkat enjoys optimization on audio, battery life and user interface. However; its successor the new TECNO BOOM J8 is truly an upgraded experience for music phone lovers and this is so, all thanks to the unique HiOS user interface,” Jesse Oguntimehin TECNO Digital Marketing lead who unveiled the HiOS at the launch event on the 31st of March, last month.

HiOS gives TECNO users more command options, for instance, the ‘Hi app manager’ feature allows users to ‘Freeze’ apps and regulate app data usage.


Other features the new HiOS offers include: One-touch Memory Free up button, a selection of offline and online wall papers, themes and font styles’’ The Digital Marketing lead added.

TECNO Marketing and PR lead, Attai Oguche speaking, on routine system updates for the HiOS, said that the new operating system will get routine system updates like other android OS, as HiOS is built on android 5.1 Lollipop OS backbone.


Improved Camera and display

The TECNO Boom J8 sports a 5.5-inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display with 16M colour, 720 x 1280 pixels’ resolution, phantom-like in size and comes with a 13MP rear camera with clear pixel resolution featuring optical image stabilization, phase detection autofocus and a 5MP front snapper featuring geo-tagging, touch focus, HDR and panorama both with LED flash. This means that the smartphone has the capacity to offer a much clear display compared to its predecessors.

Improved Sound

The BOOM J8, delivers really good sound that is unmatched by the average smartphone. The Boom J8 comes with the new music master Boom Maxx. The Boom Maxx is a very professional music maker, which helps the music enthusiasts produce proper music.

Many music stars use MAXX to make their own songs! It offers simulating different scenes, perfect bass, disposing voice. Anyone can also redact the genre either rock, blues or classical, just choose what you like and enjoy what you have created.

The BOOM J8 music player was re-engineered to enable users stream music in different genres and even download some of the songs to their library.


TECNO will release other mobile devices in coming quarters of 2016 on the new HiOS. They believe the OS’ unique interface, app icons and highly optimized audio, battery-life and camera features will totally stand TECNO products out of the clutter.

The latest TECNO BOOM J8 music smartphone comes with signature Hi-performance headsets and uniquely tailored sound equalizer options. The flagship device will be retailed at N41,000 across offline and online sales outlets nationwide.
