Some days back we posted that Tecno has announced that they will be releasing Android Nougat for other Tecno phones come this summer.
So far, only newly launched Tecno phones are running Android Nougat. Following request and complains by users, Tecno revealed that they are already working on Android Nougat for their other devices and that they will start rolling out the update by August.
They also revealed that the Android Nougat will come with the latest version of Tecno custom user interface – HiOS 2.2.
While we wait for the update, here are some exciting features that will be coming with the update…

Split screen is a feature that was introduced in Android devices starting with the launch of Android N. Split screen allows you to run two different apps on the same screen by splitting the screen in to two.
This feature is particularly useful when multitasking and it comes in handy for big screen devices like the Tecno Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus.
You should however note that not all apps support split screen function at the moment. You can learn more about split screen and how to enable it here.
