October 17th, 2019 2 min read

Tecno has released another device into the Kenyan market – the device, which is the 6th generation of brand’s camera-centric Camon Series comes with a long list of added values and updates from its predecessors.

The Camon 12 series comes in three size and colour variants – the Camon 12, Camon 12 Pro and Camon 12 Air.

The device can be gotten in an Aqua Blue colour variant, a Boudreaux Red colour variant and a Midnight Black colour variant.

All variants of the device come in a nebula gradient inspired look – a design patterned after the starlight that reflects beautifully in light conditions making the device very attractive. In addition, putting into consideration its 6.52 HD AMOLED DOT Notch display and 7.88 thickness, it is safe to conclude that the device is very light and fits perfectly into the grip of a user.

The Camon 12 comes with a 16 MP front Camera, accompanied by a pair of dual flashlights to enable users take crystal clear selfies under lowlight situations – this a visible upgrade from its precedent which spots a single flash light.


In addition, the focus on camera quality took a new dimension with the Camon 12. TECNO introduced a Triple AI Max Camera of 16+8+2 MP to the Camon 12, which gives users the opportunity to take up to 120° super wide-angle shots – thus, with this device, capturing images of amazing landscape, cityscapes and indoor architecture has become stress-free.

The 2 CM Macro photography feature included on this device makes it possible to take close-up shot without losing the smallest details on the object a user intends to capture – to mention also, is the bokeh effect that helps users tackle background issues by placing a clearer focus to the object in focus as against the background.

In terms of battery, the Camon 12 packs an irremovable 4000mAh battery with super-fast charge, and can stay on standby for 24 hours after a single charger.

The device is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P22 chipset which makes possible Smart AI imaging, AI Camera, reliable connectivity and power efficiency — trust me, with all the power packed in the Camon 12, the device would not get hot while performing powerful functions due to this ‘new premium chipset which sells at a sweet price point.’

Worthy to mention is the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, Face ID unlock, Pin and Pattern featured added to the device to help users maximize privacy on their smartphone.

The Camon 12 sells for Sh13,595 at any authorized TECNO dealer store across the country. Do not forget to collect your raffle ticket as you might be the lucky customer to go an all-expense paid trip to Europe courtesy of TECNO.
