Tecno Camon X Pro

It seemed for a while like TECNO Mobile might have lost its crown (as Nigeria’s leading and popular smartphone brand) to Infinix Mobility amongst others.

It now looks like majority of persons (which also includes me) pushing such notion, are wrong after all (maybe slightly). I mean, what better response could you have asked or wished for? TECNO CAMON X PRO - The latest beast amongst Tecno Beasts.

This is definitely a better Camon flagship device than the previously released Camon CM, of which I was a big critic, especially when compared to Infinix Hot S3 which was released at that same period of time.

The Camon X Pro is a device which comes at a time when it would really be appreciated by Tecno fans. Tecno has given the public something to savour with hope of not regretting tasting it.

The Infinix users might be tempted not to appreciate the sentiment, but the Tecno Camon X Pro is what it is - a better upgrade and response to Camon CM and Infinix Hot S3 respectively.

Tecno Camon X Pro

Call it an old wine in new bottle, call it whatever you want; Tecno Mobile users would think otherwise. They would definitely want to upgrade their Camon flagships. I mean, who could blame them? Or as a typical Nigerian would say, “who no like better thing?

Okay. Enough of the sentiments, accolades and what nots, let’s see what makes the Tecno Camon X Pro a spectacular device… or I’d rather say, is it a spectacular device?

Tecno Camon X Pro is a variant and a better version of the standard Camon X (you would see the specs of this device).

Overview Of The Camon X Pro Features


Design And Display

Tecno Camon X Pro

Though the Camon X Pro parades an elegant design, its build is still of the polycarbonate element (plastic) which isn’t associated with premium smartphones in the present era of top of the line design. That still doesn’t make it bad though; it can be used without feeling it.

That doesn’t take anything away from an otherwise slim and beautiful design which has 2.5D curved glass protection.

The rear camera is spotted at the top left corner of the device with the fingerprint sensor slightly below it.

With every premium smartphone looking to trim down bezels, TECNO follows in thesame footsteps. Its latest flagship device has an almost bezel-less display.

Tecno Camon X Pro

With regards to display, It has a 6.0-inch Full Higher Definition (FHD+) with a 1080 x 2160 pixels screen resolution based on a 18:9 aspect ratio. The graphic display is based on Mali GPU (for better graphics rendering), supported by Tecno HiOS v3.3 sleek interface for better interactive experience.
Tecno Camon X Pro has better resolution and display compared to its standard variant, Camon X.

Camera

Tecno Camon X Pro

Camera is one aspect of smartphones which we all look out and expect more from this days. Given the reputation of the Camon Series camera specifications, we’d always expect more from TECNO in this regard. Boy! They didn't disappoint, as the Camon X Pro does even better with a bump in camera quality. And multiple LED Flash to capture real time images in lowlight conditions.

The Tecno Camon X Pro features a 16MP Rear Camera with quad LED Flash. Yea, you read right… four (4) LED Flash. Great image capturing is no longer restricted to daylight conditions alone; it’s now extended to night and lowlight conditions. Its features include phase detection, autofocus, HDR, Panorama amongst others.

How about the front / secondary / selfie camera? This is where it does better than its counterparts. It’s an impressive and adorable 24 megapixels selfie camera. Taking selfies has just gotten better. I almost forgot to say, it has a dual (2) LED Flash, offering a whole new and amazing selfie experience.

Not finished yet... did I make mention of Face ID? The Camon X Pro offers extra security and easy unlock with its new facial recognition software.

Processor, Memory & RAM

Tecno Camon X Pro

The Camon X Pro features better memory and RAM than its standard variant.

TECNO uses the ever dependable MediaTek Helio P23 MT6763 which clocks at 2.0GHz Octa-core processing speed. Multitasking between different applications is definitely not a problem.

There’s definitely no chance of this device slowing down due to multitasking with its 4GB RAM.

It boasts a 64GB built-in storage which is expandable via MicroSD whose maximum capacity is set at 128GB. The 64GB could well satisfy your files and media needs.

OS And Software


The Tecno Camon X Pro is the first OEM device from TECNO to feature the Android 8.1 Oreo offering its users an opportunity to enjoy the newest and best OS for greater overall interactive experience.

Its graphics is based on the Mali GPU assisted by TECNO’S HiOS v3.3 UI. Which is pretty much as good as you could hope for.


Sensors And Features

Tecno Camon X Pro


The Camon X Pro features a fingerprint sensor mounted at its rear to beef up security.

This device makes use of its selfie camera for Facial ID to unlock device.

Also included are the gyroscope, accelerometer, GPS, and others.

Not water resistant and no heart rate monitor.

Battery And Connectivity


Camon X Pro boast a 3750 mAh Li-Po battery which is non-removable, and should be enough for heavy users.

It’s also 4G LTE enabled.

To draw the curtain close, here’s what we think…

Verdict

Tecno Camon X Pro

The Camon X Pro is an exceptional device with very few shortcomings. In terms of display, RAM, Camera, OS, Software, Hardwares, Camera and Memory; nothing is left to be desired. However, TECNO could certainly have opted for a more premium design other than the polycarbonate, but who cares anyway? It certainly does not take anything away from such spectacular device.

The inclusion of the Face Unlock feature is a bold move for the chinese manufacturer. This would certainly attract consumers.

The Camera is truly amazing. It offers you the opportunity to capture breathtaking photos.

Amongst recently released devices from Chinese manufacturers in the midrange sections, I’d probably opt for this. It’s a fits-it-all device.

Spectacular? Probably. A statement of intent? Definitely. Let’s hear what you think about it.
