African mobile giant – Tecno just released a new smartphone into its Camon series. The device is code-named Tecno Camon CM (CMore). Tecno Camon CM is the company’s latest top-selling device with 18:9 aspect ratio (frame-less full-screen display). This is the very first smartphone from Tecno with such a screen display ratio spec.
Eric Lu, the Brand Manager of TECNO Mobile, Nigeria, stated thus; “The full-view display device produces an immersive experience when consuming videos, reading books, capturing images or even surfing the Internet.”
Camon CM is a stylish full-screen display smartphone with lots of impressive features. We will discuss its features and specs in this article and also, its price in top online stores.
Features of Tecno Camon CM (CMore)
The newest features of Tecno Camon CM is already outlined above, but We’ll like to dig deep into some of the outstanding features that comes with this model.
Design and Display
Tecno Camon CM is a stylish smartphone with a sleek plastic body build. It comes with a 5.7″ screen size and a screen resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels (364PPI).
Furthermore, this is an Ultra-Slim device, the 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 makes it a strong and reliable smartphone to consider this year.
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.
Tecno Camon CM comes with a fast processing power – 1.25 GHz, MediaTek MT6737 (Quad-core), alongside a T720 MP2Mali GPU.
This has been the company’s selling point over the years. Tecno hardly disappoints its customers when it comes to their camera quality. This smartphone (Camon CM) packs a stunning 13MP Rear camera and 13MP sharp selfie camera.
Operating System – OS
Tecno Camon CM didn’t come with the latest Android version – OREO (8.0), instead it was launched with Nougat (7.0). We hope to see the company act on this and roll out an OTA update (to 8.0 OREO) soon.
Network and SIM Card
Coming to the network features of this smartphone, Camon CM has support for 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE networks. It also has support for Dual Micro SIM cards (Dual Standby).
Other Misc. features of this device includes; a Document viewer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Compass, Fingerprint and Light sensor, etc.
