Tecno Camon 12 Air is one of the most attractive budget phones available in Kenya. This smartphone is well designed and has fairly powerful hardware which makes it one of the smartphones in its class.  If you are looking for a good affordable phone, the Camon 12 Air is definitely one of the smartphones that you should consider. It is an interesting option if you would like a phone with a dot-notch display and cameras that capture decent photos and videos.

Tecno Camon 12 Air design and display

The Camon 12 Air has a plastic back cover with a glossy finish. It is available in two colors – Stellar Purple and Bay Blue.  This phone has attractive looks and feels premium in your hands.  It is lightweight and easy to hold and use in one hand. Most of the front area is mostly covered by the display which has a punch hole camera. This is the first device from Tecno with the punch-hole display design.   It is also the first phone in its class (under 15K) with this design.  The notch is small; takes up very little area of the screen.  Camon 12 Air is one of the best-looking budget phones in the country right now.

Tecno Camon 12 Air comes with a 6.55 inches HD+ display. The resolution of this display is 720 pixels by 1520 pixels and it has an aspect ratio of 20:9. Thanks to the punch hole design, Tecno was able to achieve a high screen to body ratio of 90.3%.  This display is bright and has good viewing angles.

Hardware and software

Camon 12 Air is equipped with MediaTek Helio P22 Octa-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM. Internal storage space is 32GB with the option of expanding storage via a microSD card (up to 256GB).  The performance profile is pretty good for a device in its price range.

It is powered by Android v9.0 Pie with HiOS 5.5 user interface on-top.  The custom UI has a lot of interesting features including Smart Toggle and app drawer support.   You can uninstall some of the pre-installed apps if you feel they are not adding value to your life.

Camera performance

As far as the cameras are concerned, Tecno Camon 12 Air comes with a triple rear camera set-up at the back. The triple-lens camera consists of a 16 megapixels main lens, a 5 megapixels wide-angle lens, and a 2 megapixels depth sensor.  The rear camera is accompanied by an LED flash for low light photography.

The front-facing shooter is 8 megapixels and has an f/2.0 aperture.

When you start the camera app, you will see the different camera options including Beauty, Video, AI, Panorama, Bokeh, and AR shot.  The cameras capture decent quality photos and videos in places with good light.  Low light shots are also petty decent thanks to the rear quad-LED flash.

Connectivity and battery

This phone provides various connectivity options including WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G LTE and micro-USB. It has a 3.5mm audio jack and supports the use of two SIM cards simultaneously.
