Chinese smartphone maker Tecno Mobile keeps expanding its Camon 16 series. It has yet again added a new variant to the lineup and called it Tecno Camon 16 SE. The phone comes with specs and features similar to its vanilla model.

Tecno Camon 16 SE launched

Just like the vanilla version, the Tecno Camon 16 SE has a 6.8-inch 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.

The phone is powered by the Helio G70 SoC, runs Android 10 with HiOS 7.0 on top but has 6GB RAM and 128GB storage onboard. The smartphone also comes with a dedicated slot for a microSD card that allows storage expansion.

Per the camera department, you will find a quad camera setup, which is a combination of a 48MP primary, 2MP macro, 2MP depth and 0.3MP 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 SE 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 SE ships with a 5,000 mAh battery that charges at up to 18W through a microUSB port.
