Tecno D9 is a 6.0-inch Android phablet probably targeted at consumers on budget. Apart from the fact that it will be cheaper than Tecno’s earlier 6-inch phablet, the Phantom A3, there is nothing much to report about this device. It ships with Android 4.2 running on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM.
The Hardware & Software
Tecno’s mission here is probably to offer consumers a cheaper 6-inch smartphone. With the Phantom A3 selling above 40,000 Naira, this device is cheaper at 35,000 Naira with comparatively lower specs. It offers the same 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, and Android 4.2 as the Tecno Phantom A2.
Display & Camera
Tecno D9 features a large 6-inch IPS display, but with QHD resolution (540 x 960 pixels), which means the display will not be that brilliant. It has a 8 megapixels camera with LED Flash, autofocus and 720p HD video recording on the back and a front-facing 5 MP camera for videocalling and self-portraits.
Price & Availability
Tecno D9 is available in Nigeria and you can buy online or at phone stores near you. Tecno D9 price in Nigeria ranges from N28,000 to N38,000 depending on your location in the country.
