Tecno Camon 12 is the latest camera focused phone that succeeds the Camon 11. Tecno has made a good name for itself by manufacturing quality camera phones and selling them at attractive prices. The highlights of this smartphone include a big 6.52 inches display, MediaTek Helio P22 processor, triple-lens rear camera, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB internal storage space.
Tecno Camon 12 design and display
When you take a quick look at the Camon 12, and you have seen the Tecno Phantom 9 before, you will quickly conclude that Tecno followed the same design blueprint. These two phones have a lot of design similarities. However, it’s important to keep in mind the fact that the later is significantly more expensive because it has more powerful internals.
This smartphone comes with a 6.52-inch IPS LCD display with a modest resolution of 720 pixels by 1600 pixels. Camon 12 has narrow bezels which helped the manufacturer to achieve 81.6 screen-to-body ratio. Although this ratio is not as high as what we get in the new Phantom phone, it is better than what you get from most phones in Tecno Camon 12’s price range.
The display has a tiny waterdrop notch at the top housing the phones 16 MP front facing shooter.
This smartphone comes with the 3.5mm headphone port, a feature that many manufacturers have been eliminating in many phones built-in 2019. The volume and power buttons are on the right side. At the back, there is the triple-lens camera module and a physical fingerprint scanner. The back cover is made from polycarbonate plastic.
Tecno Camon phones are known for their outstanding cameras and the Camon 12 does not disappoint in this department. This smartphone is equipped with a 16 megapixels front-facing camera with HDR support. This camera also supports HD video recording.
The back camera has very impressive specifications – the primary camera is 16 megapixels and it is accompanied by an 8 megapixels wide-angle lens and a 2 megapixels depth sensor. There is a quad-LED flash that will help you take good quality photos in low light environments.
Hardware, Software, and extras
