So, What’s So Special About The Tecno Camon X


The Tecno Camon X launched last week in Nigeria barely two months after the Tecno Camon CM was introduced in the market. In this unboxing and first impressions post I will take you through whats special about the Tecno Camon X.  Straight from the press you might have heard that the Tecno Camon X has a 24MP front camera, thats right a camera that has more real estate than most smatphones main cameras. How many megapixels does your main camer have? Copare that to 24MP! for a fron camera with flash too. Of course the Camon X has front flash capability.


Before I go further, this is the Tecno Camon X unboxing video I did. You can watch it now or scroll past to watch it later. I have included a link to the same video after the embedded video as well as at the end of this post.

So what are the quirks and features of the latest device from Tecno?

The first Tecno Device to Feature Android Oreo

The Camon X is the first Tecno device to feature Androids newest operating system, Android 8.1.0 or as it will be commonly referred to in the future, Android Oreo. Yummy.

24MP Front and 16MP Rear Camera

Although I will do a full camera review very soon, it is worth mentioning here that the front camera is very impressive. This time round the front camera can shoot videos in Full HD format.  The rear camera has what is known as ring flash and again mre on this will come on my Camon X camera review.

Face ID

Face ID is a new feature on the Tecno Camon X that enables the user to unlok the screen without the need of  a finger print, pattern or password. All that is required is to look at the Camon X and it will unlock itself. Thia is after setting up the Face ID feature.

Apart from unlocking the screen, Face ID can also be used to access the App lock feature on the Camon X.

Full Display

The 6.0 Inch screen cover much of the front of the smartphone. With on screen navigation buttons and very slim bezels the screen just stands out. I dont know how they did it but Tecno did fit that 24MP camera as well as flash, proximity sensor and ear piece at a very small area at the top bezel. It doesn’t seem crowded and this is what makes the big screen to stand out even more.

Did I mention that the screen is a Full HD screen  with resolution of 2160X1080!

More Storage

With 64GB internal storage, every Tecno Camon X user will be guaranteed to have even more space to save their files.

Faster Performance

I mentioned earlier that the Camon X runs on Android Oreo OS. At the heart of the Tecno there is a 2.0 Octa core processor that is the engine. Together with 4GB RAM lag is eliminted on simple apps and reduced on heavy apps.


The 3750mAh non removable battery will make sure that charge does not run out unexpectedly.
