I'm sure nobody expected that the Tecno Boom J7 will come with great music device which will give you a superb music experience. Big up to tecno on that

Price: In market as at today, the phone sells within N24,000 - N30,000

Infinix Zero2

Rumor has it that infinix will be launching a new smartphone soon tagged "The Next Hour". Below are the specs to be expected

GSM : 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
3G : 850/2100 MHz
OS :Android 4.4.2 KitKat
SIM: Micro-SIM; Dual SIM/Dual Standby

Dimensions: 140 x 70 x 6.7 mm
Display : 5.0-inch, HD AMOLED Display with
Corning Gorilla Glass 3, 720 x 1280 pixels
Weight: 118g
Design: Highly resistant KEVLAR back cover

Processor Type : Octa Core 2.0GHZ
Graphics Processor : Mali 450-MP4
Processor Name: MTK 6592
RAM : 2 GB
Sensors : Proximity, Gyro, Light
Internal Storage : 16/32 GB
External Storage : Yes /Up to 32GB

Rear : 13 MP Camera, LED Flash, Video with
Autofocus, Geo-tagging, and Panorama
Video recording: Yes
Front-facing : 5 MP (85 degrees Wide Angle)

Music Support : MP3, WMA, WAV, eAAC+
Loudspeaker : Mono
Video Support :WMV MPEG4, H.263, H.264, XviD
FM Radio : Yes
Bluetooth : v4.0
WiFi : WLAN IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n
Infra-red : No
USB: microUSB v2.0,
NFC : No

According to this specs above we will be judging the device by;

What we expected
Majority of the high performance devices now run on Lollypop, why does Infinix Zero2 has to come with Kitkat or is there something we are missing? Let's hope the Operating system will be upgradeable to Lollypop when it rolls out.

What we didn't expect
Before the announcement of Infinix Zero2, Kevlar was foreign to majority's ears especially in techworld. Kevlar is the registered trademark for a para-aramid
synthetic fiber, related to other aramids such as Nomex and Technology. Developed by Stephanie Kwolek at DuPont in 1965, this high-strength material was first commercially used in the early 1970s as a replacement for steel in racing tires. Typically it is spun into ropes or fabric sheets that can be used as such
or as an ingredient in composite material components. So it is okay to say the new Infinix Zero2 will be a very tough device

Price: According to the specs and the trend of other infinix zero2, the Techibility team thinks the price of the phone should be within the range of  N25,000 - N35,000
