Ever since Android 5.0 Lollipop was announced last year , A lot of Tecno Users have asked when their smartphone will receive the Update. Yesterday , Android Nigeria had a chat with the Deputy Manager of Tecno Mobile, Mr Chidi Okonkwo and he revealed a lot to us.
What You Don’t Know About Software Updates
Churning out a major software update on a smartphone is not as easy as connecting your phone to a charger. There is a lot of work and time involved.
There are two types of software updates.
•Minor update fixes already existing bugs on that software / Os.
•Major update is more like a serious overhaul of the Operating system.
Whenever a Smartphone manufacturer gets a new Android Version(Major Update) from Google , the Engineering team will have to tweak the Os and test if it can work effectively on already existing smartphones. The Hardware plays a key role in determining if a Smartphone will be able to run a new Os. If the hardware is not compactible , then there will be no software update for that device. An incompactible Os can cause a Smartphone to misbehave and even crash.
This whole process takes a lot of time and this explains why some phone manufacturers may be slow in pushing out updates.
Will TECNO Rollout Android Lollipop Update On Their Smartphones?
Yes they will , But All Tecno Smartphones may not get this Update. The Engineers at Tecno Mobile are working to see if Android Lollipop will be compactable with Tecno Phones If it is , the some selected Smartphones will get the update soon.
When will Tecno phones get Android Lollipop Update?
We dont know yet , Mr Chidi didn’t give a specific date. But we should expect an update in the Next Few months.
What To Expect From Tecno This year
This year , TECNO’s main focus is Music and this explains why Tecno Boom J7 is all about music. Moving on , a new flagship Smartphone is expected to break cover in the coming months with some mouthwatering specs. (wait for it , I can’t tell you details yet :D) The flagship Smartphone will still focus on music but on a much more bigger scale. Also , we are expecting a tablet from Tecno before the year runs out.
Will we See a 3GB or 4GB RAM Smartphone from Tecno?
Yes you will! Very soon! Tecno’s flagship Smartphone for 2015 is going to be Powerful. That’s all I can say for now.
Keep Calm and Love Android!!
