Tecno launched the Camon X Pro at the same time they dropped its little brother – the Tecno Camon X. That, as it is believed, is in furtherance of the company’s plans to ensure it caters to a diverse range of markets with the best specs and at affordable rates. While the Camon X offers quite some interesting specs to look at, the Pro version blows.
Its the successor to the 2017 Camon CX. Named Camon X, probably in a bid to keep up with the fruity phone, this new Camon brings the usually expected camera flair on top of a new design that we saw debut with the Camon CM back in January.
Before we proceed, here’s what is included in the box:
- The Phone
- A USB Cable
- A wall charger
- Phone Case
- User Manual
The Camon X comes wrapped in a polycarbonate unibody design, with a 6-inch Full HD display in the modern 18:9 aspect ratio. The internals include 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage on the Pro variant and 3GB RAM and 16GB internal storage on the standard version. There’s a MediaTek Helio P23 Processor, a 24MP selfie shooter coupled up with a 16MP main camera, Android 8.1 Oreo on board and a 3750mAh battery keeping all the components juiced.
Being modern has not only been accomplished through the name and “full-display” design but also through some software features such as face unlock that we have seen pop up ever since Apple made the feature cool with the iPhone X. Camon X’s face unlock feature has been claimed to be “superfast”, TECNO even says that the Face ID feature is “more functional than the fingerprint scanner”. From our initial experience, the TECNO’s Face ID is so fast, it’s mind blowing consequently casting doubt on how secure it is.
