Today marked the beginning of a new era in the life of TECNO mobile. Earlier today, they launched their latest flagship device, the TECNO Phantom 5 a.k.a “the best smartphone of the year 2015”. The event took place at Sheraton Hotels, Ikeja, Lagos Nigeria, and here’s all the scoop of what happened.
The event started very late (Nigerian time). MC of the day, Jonathan Hanson controlled proceedings, very hilarious guy I must say. MD TECNO Nigeria, Mr. Chidi Okonkwo gave a welcome speech, followed by PR Manager TECNO, Miss Hanane Karroumi. Next were speeches from heads of regulatory bodies: SON (Standards Organisation of Nigeria) and CPC (Consumer Protection Commission).
Mr. Jesse Oguntimehin, Digital Media Manager at TECNO, took to the stage to formerly introduce the new device discussing the design details, Camera, and Sound. We got to learn more about the phone. The camera has fast capture, and phase-detection. The front camera also has 78 degree wide angle, among other things.
Later on, Manager, Activations & Events, Mr Attai Oguche came on stage to cover further details of this device. This included the super smart fingerprint scanner, Ultra-Power Saving mode, 4G LTE, etc.
We learnt that you can store up to 10 separate fingerprints that can unlock the phone, and that the price will be N69,900. There are also bundled data offers with Etisalat and Airtel when one buys the phone. Music stars M.I and Chuddy K were also present at the event, though they didn’t perform. TECNO in collaboration with M.I are launching a Karaoke Music competition which will begin later this year.
Everyone of them posed with the phone for a photo session. See the Short Black dude 🙂
