    Tecno has been extremely silent on some Tecno Models receiving Marshmallow updates which was officially announced to be ready by February this year. I can’t wait to change from my Boom7 to a new model with Marshmallow. I guess the update is Long forgotten. Since Tecno is jumping out with a new model with Android 5.1. Lollipop? Like seriously.
