In just 3 weeks, Tecno announced three different smartphones, the Tecno Camon C5, Tecno Camon C8 and now Tecno Boom J5. The new Tecno Boom J5 is no way an upgrade to its predecessor – Tecno Boom J7. The only difference is that the J5 runs on the Android 5.1 Lollipop Operating System while the J7 runs the Android KitKat.

The Tecno Boom J5  smartphone boasts of awesome features and has been designed for music lovers who love to listen to great sound quality at all times. It runs on the android operating system that comes with pre-installed apps and Play store where you can download more.

  1. Hi! Am charles from kenya. I havent bought any other make apart from tecno mobiles,tecno company is doing a great job in new inventories bravo tecno lead and others follow.please how much is tecno j 5 in kenyan market?.

  2. but the camera on the Cammon C8 is a lot of upgrade. The picture quality appears to be better than iPhone 6 from what I hear. Isn’t that improvement enough?

  3. i love how Tecno phones are cheap but i do agree they need to make better improvements. If they can do that and still keep their current price range, that will be fantastic. But I seriously doubt that

  4. I think if you look at the time spaces between each devices, it explains a lot about the little upgrades you talk about. Because of that I just think they want to provide different price ranges to different people. Also because companies with the killer devices you describe usually have leave between 9-12 months between new devices

    • Yep, The C5 is for the Kenyan market. It comes with a 2500mAh battery while the C8 for Nigeria comes with 3000mAh battery capacity.
