Tecno Phantom 6 and 6 Plus Will Get Android 7 Nougat Update in August 4th

Using a smartphone that's unable to get updates (especially OS updates) is like someone who is working in a circle. It's like being stagnant without improvements or new things to spice stuffs up. Most worryingly is when the phone starts developing some bugs, you will be forced to be using it like that and pretending as if nothing happened but in actual sense, you are already dying inside. One of the main critics Tecno Mobile recieves is the inability of pushing timely OTA update to their devices but that will be fixed with the release of Android 7.0 Nougat (Android N) update to Tecno Phantom 6 and 6 Plus.
Android N update on tecno phantom 6
In an official announcement, Tecno revealed that flagship devices - Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus will both get Android 7 Nougat update in August this year. Though Android 8 is already around the corner and some of us are wondering why Tecno is taking it so long to push this update knowing fully well that very soon, we will say goodbye to Android N and welcome Android 8 (a.k.a. Android O; where 'O' stands for Oreo). Anyway, it's still better than if it's totally ignored.

It's unfortunate that some Tecno smartphones like Tecno R7 are still wallowing in darkness with outdated Android 4 Kitkat version. In fact, users of such phones are helpless and left with no other option than to continue managing them or get a new device with new OS. Too bad.

Anyways, the Android 7 update for Tecno Phantom 6 devices will also come with HiOS 2.2 update. Remember HiOS is Tecno's custom UI just like XOS in Infinix Smartphones.

Meanwhile, I am expecting more phones from Tecno to be added to this list of devices to get Nougat update soon. So below are list of Tecno phones to receive Android 7 Update.

Tecno Phones To Receive Android N Update

1. Tecno Phantom 6 Plus:
This device which is popularly known as "The Beast" rolls on Android 6.0 Marshmallow according to Tecno, will partake in the Android N Update. See Tecno Phantom 6 Plus Specifications and Price

2. Tecno Phantom 6
The Phantom 6 is the smaller version of Phantom 6+ with smaller display. Checkout the full specs and price of the phone here

In conclusion, there is no room for the likes of Tecno Camon C8, C9, for the update.
