The Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Tecno has just unveiled its latest series of smartphones, called Camon 16. It includes three phones – Tecno Camon 16 Premier which is already available for sale in Kenya, alongside the Tecno Camon 16 Pro and the Tecno Camon 16, which are expected later this month.
All of them comes with four cameras on the back and two on the front, with the Premier sporting an Helio G90T chipset and a 4,500 mAh battery.
Tecno Camon 16 Premier
Tecno Camon 16 Premiers features a 6.9-inch 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, meaning the fingerprint scanner made its way on the side, under the power key.
The main sensor at the rear consists of a 64 MP main shooter, alongside an 8 MP, and two 2MP sensors. TECNO does not say what the cameras do in detail, but we suspect there is a wide-angle lens here, a macro one as well as a depth sensor.
The entire package is powered by an MTK G90T CPU and a Mali G76 GPU gaming chipset. If all this spec looks familiar, you’ll know that this is Infinix Zero 8 in another design.
The Tecno Camon 16 Premier is housed by a battery capacity of 4,500 mAh with 33W fast-charging.
