TECNO CAMON 17 HiOS 8.5 based on Android 12 to be ready later this year
TECNO today announced that CAMON 17 will be amongst the first few phones to get Android 12 update which will improve security and privacy, connectivity, user experience, gaming, and more. Android 12 will roll out with TECNO’s upcoming HiOS 8.5 for CAMON 17 soon.
The customized HiOS 8.5 will be launched simultaneously on CAMON 17 with the update of Android 12. By the end of this year, CAMON 17 users globally will get a push on the Android 12 version upgrade. It will also be available for PHANTOM X soon. The CAMON 17 series was launched in Nigeria back in May.
Based on the new Android 12, HiOS 8.5 will be redesigned to feel more responsive and intuitive for users, offering unified themes across apps and even devices. For example, widgets will appear more rounded and accessible in Android 12, so that users can retrieve information with ease.
In regard to privacy protection, HiOS is also further optimized. The Za-Hooc security concept, which integrates software and hardware, was newly launched last year. This will also include clipboard notifications and approximate locations with Android 12.
The HiOS 8.5 functions related to game performance will be further optimized, and the barrage features and call rejections will also continue to be optimized.
Commenting on the update, Stephen Ha, general manager of TECNO said:
TECNO has always been committed to providing users in emerging markets with cutting-edge technologies synchronized with industry trends and continuously optimizing the experience of using our devices. We are excited about Android 12’s updates, which bring a more convenient and personalized experience to consumers ranging from a newUI design to comprehensive security and privacy protection upgrades.
