In recent years, TECNO has gained more and more reputation and attention in global and local markets, especially with its successes across Africa and the relaunch of the PHANTOM brand that not only marked a jump by the brand to rival at the higher-end market section, but also a significant change to the competitive landscape in global emerging markets. The brand has been consistent in striving for excellence by delivering the latest in product functions, image, user experience and other areas of mobile technology.

Addressing Industry experts and stakeholders at the event, Muhammad Rudman reiterated the need for the adoption of 5G network in Africa, allaying fears around the safety of the technology in his keynote speech titled “How 5G can Help Internet Service Delivery”.
