Tecno Camon 15: The camon 15 is going to be next smartphone to be released by Tecno Mobile in the Camon series. After the release of the Tecno Camon 12 series, Tecno have decided to skip numbers (13 & 14) and continue the suppose sequence from Camon 15. Please don’t ask why, we don’t have the answer to that right now.
However, the soon to be launched Tecno camon 15 comes with some exciting features. It cameras comes with lots of AI features and it is also expected to shoot nice photos at night. Rumor also has it that its battery feature is coming with Safe charge (We hope to get more information about the Safe charge when the phone is launched).
But, we know that there is more to smartphones than just pop up selfie cameras. So what other new stuff is this new Tecno phone coming with? lets get to see the paper specifications of the Camon 15.
Well, we have put together the complete features of the smartphone below. As always, we focus more on user experience and performance, hence we’ll be skipping all the technical grammars. Just below the summary of the features is a table with the details of the Camon 15. Enjoy
Specifications of Tecno Camon 15
Build and Display
The phone comes with front glass, plastic back and plastic frame. Its screen size will be 6.6 inches with a punch hole display that houses the selfie camera. But, there is no display protection, its not water resistant, scratch or dust resistant.
What this means is that, if you want the phone to last longer you’ll need to provide some screen guard to help protect the screen and display. Also, using a phone jacket or case is highly recommended given it has a plastic back and frame. A phone jacket will help protect the plastic from breaking easily.
Chipset, RAM and Internal Storage
The phone uses the MediaTek Helio P22 which is an upgrade of the chipset used in the Tecno Camon 12 pro. It also uses the Octa-core (1×2.3 GHz Cortex-A53) CPU and PowerVR GE8320 GPU for image and games processing. This feature is subject to change and we’ll update this post accordingly.
So far, the phone comes in a single variant of, 4GB RAM and 64GB Internal Storage. There is space for external storage via microSD card which means you can store more files.
The new Tecno Camon phone is going to be quite impressive. And we hope to see how the chipset coupled with the RAM and Internal storage perform live very soon. You can quickly CLICK HERE to subscribe to our YouTube channel and get all the live reviews of newly launched phones.
