About Tecno Camon 17P

With the specs of the Camon 17P, one would expect the price to be higher. But typical of Tecno, their focus is making affordable premium smartphones and they’re doing a petty good job thus far.
So, along with the price of the Camon 17P, lets talk about its specs; the RAM, storage, camera, chipsets, software, and sensors.

Truth is, the Helio G85 is not as powerful as the Helio G95, but it’s performance is also incredible. and it’s faster than most chipsets in its category (even chipsets from Qualcomm and Exynos in same category can’t compete).
It’s very clear that the Camon series is Tecno’s camera phone line up. And staying true to its nature, the Camon 17P is coming with a big 64MP main rear camera. And upfront is a 16MP selfie camera.
The Camon 17P is capable of recording 4k video and it is expected to come with gyro-EIS for video stability. Then there is the TAIVOS software to enhance the quality of the night photos.
