Tecno’s New HiOS User Interface Made Available to Camon C8 Users in New Beta Build


Tecno has released a beta build of its upcoming new user interface, HiOS, to the Camon C8. The beta, which can be downloaded from Tecno’s new Spot forums has been available to Tecno’s online community of users and enthusiasts for the last several hours complete with step by step instructions on how to go about installing the beta build.

HiOS is expected to, among other things, bring a central identity to Tecno’s lineup of devices that ranges from entry level through to the upper segments of the mobile device market. HiOS will ship, for the first time, on Tecno’s upcoming Boom J8 smartphone which is slated for an April release.

Details about the latest beta build of the C8 firmware that packs HiOS and further instructions on how to flash it can be found in 3 parts (here, here and here).

While it should be generally safe to try out the beta, remember such processes are not meant for everyone and you may end up with a dead phone if you attempt flashing it without the correct technical know how. There will possibly be updates to current devices when HiOS finally ships on the first Boom J8 just as was the case when Infinix devices started rocking XUI so the wait may not be as long. You can definitely afford the wait.
