The Tecno Camon 16 first announced back in September alongside the Camon 16 Pro and Camon 16 Premier in Africa. However, the vanilla version and pro version were to to be confirmed. Now, we have a proper specs sheet following the launch of the series in Indian.
The Tecno Camon 16 is powered by the Helio G70 SoC, runs Android 10 with HiOS 7.0 on top and has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage onboard. The smartphone also comes with a dedicated slot for a microSD card that allows storage expansion by up to 256GB.
The phone is built around a 6.8″ display of HD+ resolution, that has a hole in the top-left corner for the 16MP selfie camera, which comes with Super Night Shot, 2K video recording and Video Bokeh.
Around the back, we have a quad camera setup, which is a combination of a 64MP primary, 2MP macro, 2MP depth and 2MP AI Lens units. These are joined by a fingerprint reader for biometric authentication and come with Night Portrait Mode, 10x Zoom, Slow-mo Video Recording, and Video Bokeh.
The Camon 16 also comes with a feature called Eye Autofocus – for front and rear cameras – which Tecno says “enables one to stabilize focus around the eyes and makes the portraits sharp”.
The Helio G70-powered smartphone also has a feature called Super Night Shot, which is powered by TAIVOS (TECNO AI Vision Optimization Solution) that filters the image noise and optimizes the photo and video quality.
The Tecno Camon 16 ships with a 5,000 mAh battery that charges at up to 18W through a microUSB port.
