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.

1)Minor Updates

2)Major 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.

Mr Android

I just love Android. The love I have for any device that has Android as its operating system knows no bound. Keep following my gists all the time on this websites and other platforms you will get to see me. :)


  1. Tecno phones cannot receive updates…. Its only the Tecno Camon that will receive an update… And its a minor update… Please buy an infinix to get software updates and never a Tecno. All they will do is produce a new type of phone with same name and hardware but updated software. They want you to buy a new phone every time… F*ck them…

  2. #Roy You’re on point. I regretted ever wasting my money in purchasing their products, they’re the laziest company, their engineers are just there doing nothing if at all they have any. I think itel is even better than so called tecno …. Tecno I rate you zero

  3. why this tecno boom j7,it has a problem of implicating a passward which was not set by the owner,how can be removed

  4. How to wipe cache partition on M7 Tecno phones. I have attempt to open my phone by pressing and hold Volume down and the power button. When the screen opened it was in Chinese language, so is there anyone who can help me?

    1. Yes. If your device manufacturer does not give you an update, you have to do that by installing the rom meant for another device or using cyanogenMod to install a custom ROM
