Recently, Tecno one of the prominent budget smartphone maker in Nigeria and a number of other African countries released a list of smartphones. One of which is the Tecno Camon X, a lesser variant of the Tecno Camon X Pro. The new smartphone comes with the latest design trend including a bezel-less screen with elegant tall 18:9 aspect ratio. Surely, the Tecno Camon X keeps up on how a modern smartphone should look like. In essence, the smartphone is one centred on taking pleasant selfies.
At first glance, you would agree with me that the Tecno Camon X might be the most good-looking smartphone from Tecno in the Camon series even overall.. The new smartphone has a nice bezel-less display giving you a full view. This means you have a smartphone that has a high screen to body ratio (up to 81%). However, it is still made from polycarbonate rather than metal or glass covering you have in more premium smartphones.
Onto the full view display, it is quite a beauty but when it lights up you would notice the low resolution and not too crisp colour reproduction compared to the more expensive Tecno Camon X Pro. Besides that, both smartphones have the 18:9 aspect ratio in common with little bezels in the way. There is also a 1440 X 720 HD+ resolution display leaving the pixel density at 275 ppi.
You have a fairly enough battery inside the Tecno Camon X to offer daily usage. Boasting of a 3, 750mAh battery capacity, the smartphone is well above the mediocre capacity line. As a plus, the smartphone allows you to charge using quick charge, giving you a full charge in a relatively short time.
In the area of photography, the Tecno Camon X is well equipped, especially in the Selfie department. At the rear side, you have got a 16MP camera with ring LED flash. For selfies, a 20MP front camera is held responsible having an adjustable flash as an accomplice. With this, you should be able to take some nice pictures for your social media platforms.
Moving on to the hardware featured on the smartphone, the Tecno Camon X goes for a decent mid-range SoC. In that regard, the smartphone has a MediaTek Helio P23 chipset with eight cores the highest of which clocks at 2.0GHz. When it comes to graphics munching, the smartphone is provided with a Mali GPU.
In continuance, the Tecno Camon X has a 3GB internal memory for multitasking and apps installation. Storage space stays at 16GB some of which already occupied by system software and pre-installed apps. However, you could expand this up to 128GB using a MicroSD card. As for the OS, the Tecno Camon X boots the latest Android 8.1 Oreo from the box.
The Tecno Camon X is available for sale in various online stores and smartphone retail outlets for about 57, 000 naira, depending on your location.
