Design and Display

The Tecno Boom J8 features a plastic body which is more appealing to sight unlike its successor.

It’s rimmed with a metallic framework. The appearance is more high end this time. The handset crams in a huge 5.5-inch IPS screen increasing anticipation of great broad viewing angles. That anticipation is a bit checked, however, by a High Definition resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels adequate for a device in this way

The Tecno Boom J8 is better-equipped than its forerunner for shot-taking. The primary camera was hit to 13 megapixels and it features LED autofocus and flash. The selfie snapper has also received an update to FIVE megapixels.

It’ll supposedly have flash for striking low light selfies.


This device is built with a 16gb storage capacity which can also be extended to 128gb using a micro storage card.

Performance and Operating System

With a quad core MediaTek MT6753 chip below the hood, the Tecno Boom J8 appears prepared to provide operation that is satisfying for a low midrange smartphone. It comes with a 2gb RAM, a 64-bit CPU that has a processor speed of 1.3 GHz and a Mali-T720 graphics solution.

The handset is allegedly the first to be powered by Tecno’s recently-designed HiOS applications, a custom version of Android 5.1 Lollipop.
