Tecno expands to new markets - Plans to open a manufacturing plant in lagos Nigeria

Chinese phone company, Tecno, whose business has entered its 10th year the Middle East and African markets, has informed of plans to set up a manufacturing plant in Nigeria.

For effect, the firm said it has secured a large expanse of land in one of the choicest areas of Lagos.

Tecno Deputy Marketing Manager, Nigeria, Attai Oguche, who disclosed this in Lagos, at the launch of the firm’s new mobile devices—Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus, said the firm is committed to the Nigerian market, hence the need to site a manufacturing plant in the country.

Oguche said while Tecno has its first African manufacturing plant in Ethiopia, the firm has established presence in 48 territories, “Nigeria, Kenya and Tanzania respectively remain the biggest market on the continent for the phone company.”

The firm said it has revolutionised mobile telephony in well over 30 African countries; giving mobile users global quality devices at affordable rates. The strategy of adopting innovation works and for Tecno, the turning point was the introduction of dual SIM technology into its range of feature phones and smartphones well before top mobile brands doing business in same markets could respond to a glaring consumer need.

Giving more insight into the newly launched device, which was globally unveiled in Dubai, UAE, Tecno Digital Marketing Executive, Jesse Oguntimehin, said the firm currently controls 25.3 per cent market share in Nigeria.

Currently, TECNO Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus fondly dubbed beauty and the beast by reviewers are the most disruptive smartphones in the TECNO Phantom series till date.

Experience the power of 13MP+5MP dual back cameras

The Phantom 6 is a pure beauty. Its sleek and appealing frame holds a stunning SONY 13MP plus 5MP dual rear cameras. The 13MP camera auto-focuses on images to make them appear clearer and crispier just like lenses on a professional DSLR camera while the 5MP fixed-focus camerais designed to focus on almost every object laying within the camera’s line of sight. Photos taken with the Phantom 6 are not just clear, colorful and beautiful but they also give users the option of changing the focus on each object in the picture at any time.

Reviewer’s comments on pitting the latest TECNO Phantom 6 against Chinese favorite, Huawei P9 smartphone suggests that new Phantom 6 tromps the latter in hardware and camera optimization. Phantom 6’s 6.15mm ultra-thin compact chassis faults Huawei P9’s 6.9mm and iPhone’s 77.3mm dimension respectively. TECNO Phantom 6 is the slimmest smartphone with dual rear cameras in the market.

When speed, high performance and all-round security matters, choose Phantom 6 Plus

For only 10 minutes on charge, phantom users can enjoy 124 minutes of talk time and up to 30 minutes of 4G connection.

Never say it, show it

The TECNO Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus are no doubt one of the most competitive devices to enter the market in the last quarter of 2016. By raising the bar on technological advancements, securing strategic partners and maintaining a pocket friendly price, TECNO is making a much louder, bolder statement: “Never say what you’re made of, show it.

The Official launch of Phantom 6 on September 25 at Burj Khalifa towers; Dubai is brand’s first step in long-term growth plan for the Middle-east and South American markets

TECNO, LAGOS – Africa’s leading mobile manufacturer of high-end smartphones and feature phones – TECNO, has announced its expansion into the Middle East. Celebrating its tenth anniversary year, the move into the region comes after successfully establishing itself as one of the biggest phone brands in Africa.

Over the past decade, the mobile phone penetration rate in Africa has risen to 80% from 6%, with TECNO Mobile products shipped to over 30 African countries. Currently, the Chinese mobile multinational enjoys its largest market share of 41.1% and 31.1% in Tanzania and Nigeria respectively. Also, recent market survey places TECNO Mobile as Africa’s No 1 smartphone brand, controlling an average 25.3% market share of the entire African market – the highest for any mobile phone manufacturer.

“We believe that emerging markets are where the future growth is for smartphones,” said Vane Ni, Global Marketing lead, TECNO Mobile.

“,” Vane added. We are excited to be making our Middle Eastern debut with the launch of our latest Phantom flagships, the TECNO Phantom 6 and 6 plus. The Middle East will be an important market for us as part of our growth strategy. We believe it is the perfect landscape to be taking our next step

IDC 2015 report on Africa puts sales of smartphones on the increase, by 108% which surprisingly represents only one third of the total mobile phone sales volume in the African market. While the worldwide smartphone market growth is showing a noticeable slowdown, emerging markets are just taking off.

International Data Corporation (IDC)* report also showed decline in mobile phone shipments to the Middle East in 2016 which it attributed to a lack of smartphone innovation and a variety of socioeconomic factors. Phones priced less than $300 now make up 52% of the GCC's smartphone market, with consumers looking for an attractive value proposition, IDC stated.

“In Africa, TECNO is spearheading certain technological advancements in the mobile space and this is based on our understanding of emerging markets dynamics. With the launch of the new Phantom series, we hope to use our market insights to penetrate the Middle East region,” said Tomo Liu, Deputy Marketing Director at TECNO Mobile, while speaking about the Phantom 6 launch to hold in Dubai.

“Our products are always at the forefront of innovation as we adopt the latest software technologies and best material design techniques in the world to deliver smartphone products never seen before in markets. For instance, it takes five hundred engineers working from design phase to final product assembly to deliver any TECNO Phantom flagship seen in the market,” says Attai Oguche, TECNO marketing and PR lead, Nigeria.

TECNO Mobile is the first phone brand to design an entertainment ecosystem tailored to suit the needs and habits of young mobile consumers in emerging markets. TECNO launched its BOOM series smartphones with highly improved audio quality for consumers that love music and released its CAMON and Phantom series for consumers who love pictures and high-end smartphones respectively.

“As part of TECNO’s growth strategy into new markets, we have plans under way to entering Southeast Asian and South American markets in the near future,” said Vane Ni.
