Tecno launches Camon 16, 16 Pro and 16 Premier
Chinese super smartphone gaints Tecno has just introduced its latest series of smartphones, called Camon 16. It includes three phones – Tecno Camon 16 Premier which now sells in Kenya, alongside the Tecno Camon 16 Pro and the Tecno Camon 16, which likely drops later this month.
The new Camon 16 series have four cameras on the back and two on the front, with the Premier carrying a Helio G90T chipset and a 4,500 mAh battery.
The front panel of the Camon 16 Premier has a tall 6.9” Full HD+ screen with 90Hz refresh rate and a pill-shaped punch hole for the dual selfie cameras (48 MP main + 8 MP ultrawide). It is an LCD, this means rhag the fingerprint scanner is on the side, under the power key.
On the back the Premier has a 64 MP Sony IMX686 sensor as a main camera, followed by an 8 MP ultrawide-angle snapper, and two 2MP units to assist night photos, and Portraits.
The battery of Tecno Camon 16 Premier is 4,500 mAh with 33W fast-charging. If all these specs look familiar, the reason the Infinix Zero 8 comes with a different design on the back. Both Tecno and Infinix are subsidiaries of Transsion Holdings, a Shenzhen-based smartphone manufacturer who’s major part lies on sales at developing markets in Africa and Southeast Asia.
Tecno for now, sells the Camon 16 Premier with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage for KES28,999 (about $275) and throws free TWS Hipods in the retail package.
The full specs of the Camon 16 Pro and Camon 16 weren’t showcased at the event and we’ll likely know more about those closer to their launch later this month.
