It was just yesterday that Google made Android 14 official and started rolling the update to all the eligible Pixels. And now, within a few hours from that, Tecno, a comparatively smaller brand than Samsung and others became the first OEM to roll out Android 14.
In the last few years, Android brands have become much faster in delivering the latest version of Android. Each year, a different brand becomes the first (apart from Google) to seed the fresh version of Android.
In 2022, it was Oppo who was the first to roll out Android 13 for its flagships Find X5 and Find X5 Pro. Whereas in 2023, Tecno leads the pack by pushing Android 14 first for its Camon 20 Premier 5G in India.
For the unaware, the Tecno Camon 20 Premier 5G is a mid-range smartphone. The device’s main highlights are its 108MP ultrawide camera with autofocus and 50MP RGBW main camera. It is the only phone on the market with such a high-megapixel ultrawide camera.
As for the Android 14 update, it is being rolled out in phases. So it will take some time to reach all the units.
Tecno says that the update arrives with HiOS 13.6. The latest software for the product brings improvements to Game Assistant Panel, Clock and Weather widget, multi-tasking mode, and Gallery.
At present, we have no info on the update’s availability in other markets. Anyway, it should arrive sooner than later.
The handset costs about NGN370,000 (~$360) in Nigeria today.
