TECNO Camon 12 Air Verdict and Review Rating

We are yet to review the TECNO Camon 12 Air and so do not have a review rating for it yet. This section will be updated with our review rating and a link to the review page, as soon as we have a review ready.

However, we like what TECNO Mobile has pulled off with the CAMON 12 Air: a statement that says certain features do not have to be high-end phone exclusive. And by that, we are referring to the punch hole in the display, which TECNO Mobile has branded Dot-In Display.

In case you are wondering what a punch hole display is, it is a display in which the selfie camera is located a hole that is cutout in the display, instead of in a notch. If you look at the front image of the phone, you will see a hole in the top left corner of the display. That’s a punch hole or Dot-In, if we go by TECNO’s branding.

The TECNO Camon 12 Air is the brand’s first smartphone with a punch hole in the display – and it is intriguing to see it on a budget smartphone.

Besides that, the rest of the specifications appear to be decent. We believe that TECNO Mobile will make a killing from the Camon 12 Air.

Thinking of getting one? We think you should, if only for the cool factor.
