F2 runs on Android™ Oreo 8.0 Go Edition operating system. The user-friendly system launches quicker than ever to get ready for your use. And a split-screen mode is introduced for it, in which two apps can be snapped to occupy halves of the screen.
There’s no difference in terms of design here, compared to it’s younger brother. They both sport the same removable Plastic back with the same colours available as well. I was hoping the F2 would come with a fingerprint scanner at least, but that’s not the case here.
In terms of the rear camera and LED flash placement, all the smartphones released by TECNO sports the same design. The device will be available in Champagne Gold, Ice Blue, Dark Blue and Elegant Black colours. Measuring the same 9.7mm in thickness.
5-inch Bright Display
With a sharp 5.0" sharp display, every photo, video, and game looks its best. You can enjoy vivid colors, intricate details, and crisp whites—even outdoors.
I think it’s obvious there’s no difference between the F1 and F2 in terms of design and display. This is more of an F1 Pro or F1 Plus kinda phone.
Still sports three navigation buttons at the bottom bezel, while the top houses the usual features. Dishing out standard display is still the same 5-inch FWVGA IPS capacitive touchscreen with 854 x 480 pixels in resolution.
HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE
The TECNO F series is “built for speed”, the F2 is powered by a MediaTek chip with 4-cores processor and 32-bit CPU architecture. The Quad-core processor on the device runs at a speed of 1.3GHz with 28nm process technology offering speedy performance.
A bigger 1GB RAM space is available here for smooth multitasking and to handle the Split Screen feature. The same 8GB internal storage space is available, you can upgrade up to 32GB as well.
In terms of photography, the 5MP rear shooter has a dual-LED flash and other quality features. The dual-LED will bring out all your photos taken in a low light environment. The 2MP selfie camera will take cute selfies than other 2MP shooters. It has a soft LED flash for selfies and video calls in dark places.
