TECNO has announced the release of the latest version of its operating system, HiOS 7.
A statement by the company on Tuesday said the latest version of the Operating System comes with a lot of upgrades and fresh visual looks.
The company said the HiOS 7 could be found on the recently launched Camon 16, and features a brand-new interface, colourful themes, vivid icons, and smarter interaction.
With the HiOS 7, Tecno said the blur-focused user interface of previous versions had been replaced with a rounded rectangle and starkly minimalist UI that gives comfort to the eyes by making good use of white spaces.
According to the device manufacturer, HiOS 7 also brings with it a high-quality visual experience with its new set of Icons and wallpapers that have been crafted by designers, which are inspired by the many local visual symbols reflected in African batik culture including Ankara, kitenge, Aso-oke.
It said the different app screens like the AI Gallery and Hi-Health come alive with a combination of portraits, local illustrations based on characters, scenes and stories.
These flexible and imaginative illustrations, according to the company, make the design of HiOS 7 more personalised.
Tecno said the HiOS 7 had been equipped with robust features that improve work and life efficiency, making it easier to perform domestic tasks.
The OEM said the new operating system makes it easier to answer incoming calls through hand gestures as was present in HiOS 6, including an improvement in which calls could be automatically answered by just lifting the phone to the ear.
With the help of HiOS 7, Tecno said users could easily add friends to WI-FI or top up their phone or even add a friend to contacts or parse a web link.
