Going by the number of flagships launched in African this year, one could inadvertently say, it hasbeen a great year for Africa’s leading Mobile OEM vendor, TECNO Mobile.Riding on a wave of three successful flagship launches in Q1, Q2 and Q4, analysts say TECNO Mobile may exceed 70 million mobile units in sales across Africa by the end of 2015. So, what should users know about TECNO Mobile?
- TECNO Mobile targets the market in segments.
Market segmentation is something that comes from a known consumer behavior which is need revaluation.Mobile end users tend to adjusttheir expectationsso that they can better equate the solutions offered (technology)bya newflagship device with the cost they’re comfortable to bear in order to own the device (value).
To find a common ground, mobile users settle for specific features that they want to see in their next smart phone, what this means is that a successful sale will depend on how much value an end user places on features he/ she considers key in a flagship device.
Taking advantage of this trend, TECNO Mobile this year rolled out its maiden flagships optimized primarily for music (as in TECNO BOOM J7) andCamera (TECNO CAMON C8).Saving the best for last, TECNO launched its premium all-purpose (TECNO PHANTOM 5) smart phone late September-clearly targeting premium device lovers who could not find their pick from the earlier flagships.
- TECNO goes beyond mobile to full mobile entertainment.
The truth is our smart phones do a lot more than voice calls, apps and internetsurfing these days. As a matter of fact, for millions of city dwellers their smart phones are their sole source of entertainment and news. TECNO Mobile has latched onto this trend to develop what is now Africa’s largest online entertainment platform, the Boom player. This is an app, which is pre-installed on TECNO flagship devices, and it hosts over 200,000.00 audio, music videos and movies. Contents on boom player can be downloaded into user’s smart phone or streamed directly online,contents are both free and paid-for.
- TECNO goes ultra-power on all flagships;
Most mobile users probably do not remember how portable power banks came about-TECNO gave away free power banks at the launch of its premium device TECNO Phantom A+ in 2013.
From then on, power banks grew in popularity and usage but TECNO Mobile was aiming for something better.To give end users extendedtalk time, the OEM gianthas launched built-in power saving technology in all of its later flagships, no need for power banks folks!
