TECNO Camon X and Camon X Pro: Clearer selfie camera with Face ID


A 16MP rear cameras with an increased image definition of 30% over that of the CAMON CX to ensure that images are clear and sharp on both devices.  The main difference here is the selfie cameras. 20MP selfie camera (Camon X) and 24MP (Camon X Pro), both with large f/2.2 aperture.

What should you expect from this improved camera:

  • “4-in-1” mode — utilises 4 different small cells to balance colour, lighting and combines them into one picture
  • Bokeh effect mode to place more focus on your face than the background
  • Intelligent adjustable flashlight
  • “AI-powered” selfie beautification
  • 3-HDR mode for portrait and group selfies.


The duo comes in 6-inch Full Display Screen with 2.5D corning third glass. This glass gives the phones a purely aesthetic and ergonomic feel. With this glass, users can easily touch and swipe on the screen of the phone smoothly.

Performance & Battery

In order to beat and improve the performance of the Camon CX, the Camon X and X Pro features a Mediatek Helio P23 chipset with 2GHz speed, 16-nanometer silicon, and a dedicated hardware for image signal processing.

What does this mean?

This means high performance and longer battery life with fantastic photo and video experience for anyone who buys this device. 

This device runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with TECNO’s HiOs v3.0. The latest version of the HiOS UI identifies components causing heating in the background and quickly cools off the phone through a series of methods such as background cleaning. And this will definitely improve battery life of the 3750 mAh battery the phone packs.


The CAMON X and CAMON X Pro debuts a new Face ID technology that can be used to unlock the phone. TECNO Mobile still maintains the fingerprint scanner.
