In this post, you will find out all you need to know about the Tecno R7 specifications, features and price in Nigeria.

Following the release of previous Tecno android phones, users have always complained of the Ram memory and sorts but now, the good news is, Tecno has stepped up the game with the new Tecno R7 android smartphone.

The new smartphone comes with a fascinating 1.5GHz 6-Core Processor which facilitate the speed of this smart device and a 16GB ROM + 2GB of RAM.

Hence, for all you hardcore game lovers, you should be very much okay with this and i doubt if you will have any more complains related to playing high quality games with the R7 device.

However, if you still do, then i guess you should……..Okay, i don’t wanna say that….shhh :-).

tecno r7 specification and price in Nigeria

The android device by specification, comes with dual camera of 13 mega pixels rear camera with flash and 5.0 mega pixels front facing camera for video calling. Hence, for all you ladies who enjoy snapping beautiful pictures wherever you go, this device should fit into your style or don’t you think so?

For internet lovers or surfers like me who obviously hate slow browsing and enjoy surfing the internet with high speed, the tecno android smartphone has a high internet connectivity of 3.75G, 2Gb ram and 16GB internal storage.

However, just when users expected that the latest android smartphone devices coming from the brand will be launching with OTA update functionality and android 4.4 kitkat version, they got disappointed as the Tecno R7 phone comes yet with android 4.2 jellybean OS.

Oh well, let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope the next device from the brand comes with those functionality.

  • Tecno is really trying and i believe that in no distant time, they will be introducing the OTA service just ass requested by her users. Good job Samuel, been a while i flocked around this blog of yours, you are really doing a great job.

    • Nice to have you around again buddy. Tecno has already started introducing OTA functionality in their new devices. You can check out the Phantom Z device, its got OTA functionality.

  • ya I meant tecno OK will be looking up to ur post nd hw about cheap android browsing or any tweak pls

    • Hello Samex, guess you mean tecno d3 and not technology d3. If that’s correct, please standby as I will be writing a post on it asap for you.

  • Tecno is just becoming silly. They produce same phones but change a few things and call it another name which is a combination of alphabet and number.
    At least they coould have mave made this new phone quad-core processor and 2gb RAM. They could still have made it run on Android 4.3 or 4.4
    With the way Tecno is pricing their latest products, they will someday cease to be favourite of Nigerians. A time is coming when price of a Tecno phone will be the same as Samsung.
    The truth is: people are now dropping their android phones for blackberry because of data cost. Even for me, I only use my android to receive calls and play games for the past two months now.

  • with this device, I believe tecno is tryin(a bit oh), but I think instead of some of these functions they should have added OTA to their devices cos that’s one of the most important thing a core Android user needs, not going for newer phones because of newer OS version. that’s my opinion

    • Exactly! Oh well, guess the focus is low end phones for those who can’t afford Samsung devices and sorts. Lets hope they introduce such functions soonest.

    • The full meaning of OTA is ‘Over The Air’. Its a functionality which allows you to update your device OS to its latest version when its available for your device. Big mobile brands like Samsung already has this functionality on most of their devices. We are hoping Tecno introduces this feature soon on their new devices also.
