Tecno N9S Appears on Geekbench with MediaTek MT6737 Quad-core SoC – A Significant Upgrade over the Tecno N8S

Tecno N8S, Tecno N9S Rumors

It’s not long since the Tecno N8S came to life but it seems the Chinese company is already getting ready with the handset’s successor dubbed the Tecno N9S.

In a recent benchmark listing on Geekbench, the Tecno N9S made an appearance, revealing a few major specs that we can expect from the phone. Being a successor to the N8S, we expect the tech giant to unveil a device that is an upgrade over its predecessor and for sure this looks like one.

If the Geekbench listing is to be believed, the Tecno N9S will ship with a MediaTek MT6737 quad-core processor that is clocked at a speed of 1.25GHz. This is a 2016 processor and as such, we expect it to support some of the latest standards, including 4G LTE connectivity, among others.

The MT6737 processor will be paired with a RAM of 1GB and the phone will come powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. In the benchmarks, the phone managed a score of 511 during single-core tests and a better 1470 during multi-core tests.

Tecno N9S

When compared to the Tecno N8S, the upcoming model has a few upgrades here and there. The former has a 5-inch HD screen, which should be retained, but the MediaTek MT6580 SoC is no more. The N8S has a 1GB RAM and storage of 8GB, which can be expanded by a microSD card of up to 32GB. It would indeed be a pleasure if the Tecno N9S came in with at least 16GB of internal storage.

The Tecno N8S has a 5MP camera on the back and a 2MP sensor for selfies. We don’t know if the Tecno N9S will keep these features, but an upgrade to 8MP and 5MP, respectively, would be a huge welcome for many fans. We should get clearer details in the coming days and update you. Stay tuned!
