Tecno R9S

Tecno Mobile does not produce phones with a “S” after the model name. However the S is usually added by Safaricom Limited. I guess you have come across devices such as Tecno R6s, Tecno N6S , Camon CXs. In all these phone the “S” stands for Safaricom. Today I was moving around Safaricom Shop and came across the Tecno R9S.

It support 4G network and also has a fingerprint sensor that is rear-mounted. The device also support 3G (WCDMA) and 2G (GSM) network over several bands. It also support Bluetooth and Wi-Fi with hotspot and Wi-Fi direct.

Tecno R9s is a single SIM as always, those phone customized by Safaricom will only support a single SIM. So the R9s is not a dual SIM. And don’t expect an S phone to have dual SIM never.
