Tecno F1 was unveiled during the launch event in Nigeria, alongside the device were other low-end smartphones
Coming under the new Android Go program, the device is intended to give the low-budget Android market a taste of Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. Tecno F1 comes with a very low price tag to match it’s poor technical specifications. Given it’s market category, the Tecno F1 might not be all that impressive in terms of specs and features, but you can’t take anything away from the 5-inch screen that was opted for. Don’t expect 18:9 aspect ratio here, but don’t think you’ll be getting ugly bezels too. Set at a resolution of 854 x 480, the display will not be the clearest in the market but it will still get the job done. Above the screen on the F1 device is a 2MP snapper for video calling (WhatsApp, Messenger and other apps that can use this) as well as handling selfie needs. It is surprising – in a good way – that Tecno would be magnanimous enough to add a soft LED flash to the front for selfies in dark places.
That is paired with the 5MP sensor on the back which promises even better capturing. Combined with its own LED flash, you can get better pictures in low light now.
At the helm is where most of the actions are happening. Loading Android 8.0 Oreo (Go edition) on deck, Tecno F2 relies on the workings of a quad-core processor which will clock at 1.3GHz at the maximum.
Tecno F1 is boosted by 1GB of RAM capacity with the same 8GB worth of internal storage space as the Tecno F2. This will probably not be enough for it’s users, there is a dedicated microSD card slot on board to get the space up to 32GB.
A 2000mAh battery is not all that solid. For a device that doesn’t run many applications though, the battery should be enough to get you through most of the day. Entry-level users might even be able to use the unit for more than a day at on one charge. The device is available in Midnight Black, City Blue, Dark Blue and Gold color options.
