Tecno DroiPad 7D unveiled with Dual SIM and Kids Zone support


After launching the Tecno PhonePad 3 ,the Tecno Camon CX and Camon CX Air smartphone earlier this year, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer Tecno Mobile has again   updated its tablet portfolio with the launch of an entry-level Tablet , “The Tecno 7D for short , DroiPad 7D or  Tecno DroiPad 7D .

The most interesting part of the  entry level Tecno DroiPad 7D is the Kevlar back that just looks just like that of the Infinix Hot 2 announced back in 2015.

Also worthy of note is the support for dual SIM and Kids Zone support , a feature which allows parents to manage the content and time kids can watch and play on the device. To give a better protection for your kids, it will automatically turn into eye-protection mode at night and it gives out alarms if the kids are reading while laying down.

The  Android 7.0 Nougat powered  Tecno DroiPad 7D  features  a 7-inch IPS screen  with 600 x 1024 pixels resolution and powered by  1.3GHz  Mediatek MT8321D quad-core processor supported by  1GB of RAM and a 16GB of native storage, expandable via microSD, up to 256 GB .

The Tecno DroiPad 7D packs a 5MPixel main camera with LED flash and a 2MP selfie cam positioned in front , still with LED Flash. The Tecno DroiPad 7D  is an entry level tab probably targeted at the younger generation  , so it lacks the Fingerprint sensor found on the recently announced Tecno PhonePad  3 and offers only 3G along with Wi-Fi b/g/n, microUSB and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
