Hardware, Storage, and Memory

Inside the hood, Tecno Camon CM packs a 16GB ROM that can be extended to 128GB via a MicroSD card. It comes with a 2GB of RAM; which isn’t bad, considering the current retail price.

In comparison to their previous high-end devices launched within the last quarter of 2017, I think they should have increased the RAM and the default storage capacity to somewhat pristine.
