Tecno Mobile has been teasing fans with yet another upcoming smartphone named Tecno L9 Plus couples of days now. Just some days back, we revealed some leaked and rendered images of the Tecno Camon C10 (CX) said to feature 4 Cameras (2 front cameras and 2 rear cameras); a sign that we are in that period of the year again when virtually all smartphone manufacturers will start displaying their creativeness by releasing different wow-ish devices into the African mobile markets.
SEE BELOW FOR TECNO L9 & L9 PLUS UPDATED REVIEW:
It is certain that the Tecno L9 will be launching first alongside the Tecno L9 Plus to add up to the L-series range of smartphones known for huge battery capacity and the rumored Tecno Camon C10 with 4 cameras.
Just as it name implies, the Tecno L9 and L9 Plus, an upgrade and direct successor to the battery centric Tecno L8 and L8 Plus with powerful 5050mAh juicers launched in 2016 will both be coming with impressive features and larger battery sizes with Quick charge support. The L-series line of Tecno Mobiles is known for their huge battery capacity just like the Gionee’s Marathon line. Gionee M6 launched in 2016 that packed a 6000mAh battery capacity, and anything lesser than that on the L9 or L9 Plus will be undesirable because this is 2017. :)
Other speculations about the forthcoming L9s is that the two smartphones will house a much better design with amazing camera lenses and upgraded software for an impressive performance.
What we expect from the Tecno L9/L9 Plus
- Body: Metal build
- Display: large 6-inch HD IPS display (Exp.)
- OS: Android 7.0 Nougat (Exp.)
- Dual 13MP rear Camera with Dual Flash and 8MP front Camera with Flash (Exp.)
- Memory Capacity: 2GB of RAM for L9 and 3GB of RAM for L9 Plus (Exp.)
- Storage Capacity: 16GB (expandable up to 128GB) (Exp.)
- Battery Capacity from 5OOOmAh, 4G LTE, Fingerprint scanner, bigger processor
This is not much of a phone I guess. However, Tecno L-series devices do not always come with high-end features, so we shouldn’t be expecting too much from these upcoming Tecno phones. But we are certain about a robust battery size that can hold more power than a man in the other room and an improved camera.
Rumored Tecno L9/L8 Plus Specifications
Based on spreading rumors and leaked photos, the Tecno L9 and L9 Plus will come as a 6-inch HD IPS display smartphone with screen resolutions measuring 1280 x 720 pixels.
As captioned on the image teased by Tecno recently, “Tecno L9 Plus holds more power than your boyfriend. Always in charge” has gotten everyone talking about this kind of teasing spirit. This means that the battery has the ability to sustain the device more than 3 days on full charge. Battery talk time which was formerly 8 hrs should be increased to something around 15 hrs and standby time formerly 250 hrs should be able to boost the devices up to 300 hrs. it is also said that the device will be able to withstand 35 hours of video playback and 28 hours of intensive gameplay.
The devices are actually juiced by 5000mAh battery with Ultra-Power saving mode installed on the devices will make users minimize the way these phones consume battery.
That is not all, aside the powerful juicers that back both the L9 and L9 Plus, the devices look a lot thinner than its predecessors despite their large batteries packed behind them, thanks to great engineering from Tecno Mobile team. We have been able to gather that the two devices will come in different colors: Blue, Black, Gold, Champagne Gold, and Anthracite Grey.
These Tecno devices have switched from plastic cases to metals that make the phones even lighter in spite of their battery sizes.
A source claims that the device will come with a dual rear camera with each camera having a 13MP sensor using both the rear camera setup as seen on Tecno Phantom 6 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus. Of course this sounds like an awesome deal, but it should be noted however, that such camera configuration on a mid-range smartphones will definitely move the price point to the high-end segment.
Moving ahead to the chipset section, the forthcoming Tecno phones are expected to come powered by the usual Quad-Core Mediatek processor which will be supported by 2GB RAM for the Tecno L9 and 3GB RAM for the L9 Plus with an internal storage memory of 16GB each. The phone is likely to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of box.
