“The partnership with Manchester City Football Club, the Premier League champions, will help further boost our brand recognition and name value as a leading mobile device company around the world,” said Ha.
TECNO – Africa’s leading mobile phone brand
TECNO Mobile is a leading mobile phone brand that falls under Transsion holdings.

TECNO prides itself on offering an extensive range of smartphones, each of which cater to the specific needs of different types of customers.
The most popular TECNO smartphones in South Africa are the POP range.
These are affordable smartphones that use Android Go and offer impressive features such as a camera of up to 8MP and a stylish gradient colour design.
The range has proven to be a hit in the South African market thanks to its low price point.

The Spark 3 offers an AI-powered camera that uses intelligent image processing to beautify your images – even in poorly-lighted conditions.
It also offers biometric security features, as well as a luminous crystal design that will make your phone feel like a truly premium product.
Other impressive smartphones available from TECNO include the Camon 11 – an impressive mid-range smartphone that offers a powerful dual-camera system and a 16MP selfie camera – and the recently-launched Phantom 9.
The Phantom 9 is the high-end offering from TECNO, and offers a variety of premium features including an AI-powered triple-lens camera and an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The Phantom 9 also boasts a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, 6GB of RAM, 128GB ROM, and an octa-core processor – positioning it as a powerful yet affordable competitor to other premium smartphones.
It is not yet available in South Africa.
