After 12 years in the mobile phone manufacturing business, African remains Tecno Mobile’s largest market in terms of sales and this year the Global Spring Launch is heading to Nigeria.
Tecno’s latest addition to the Camon Series is rumoured to be unveiled at this launch which is set to be a spectacle Africa is yet to experience at any phone launch that has ever been done on the continent.
In 2017, we witnessed the launch of Camon CX and CX Air in Kenya at a well organised world-class event. The success of the launch reflected in sales. For instance, Ghana recorded impressive sales figures within its first month of release.
The new device is dubbed “Tecno Camon X” and it will be in two variants: Camon X and Camon X Pro.
In January 2018, The Chinese mobile phone manufacturer released the Camon CM, the company’s first device to feature the 18:9 screen ratio. This I believe was to pave way for other devices that Tecno will be releasing to feature full display especially the Camon X. I am expecting to see a similar design of the Camon CM for the Camon X. Apart from the full-screen ratio, there wasn’t much difference between the Camon CM and Camon CX Air released in 2017.
However, I gather that, it won’t be the case for the new device in comparison with the Camon CX. The new device is expected to have major improvements in camera, memory and an introduction of a Face ID feature. Tecno Camon X will feature 3GB RAM + 16GB ROM and Tecno Camon X Pro will have a 4GB RAM + 32 ROM, and will run on Android 8.1 with same processors.
Just like any other Camon series device, the Camon X and X Pro are expected to have great camera capabilities and also feature improved features that are yet to be seen on any Tecno device.
There is so much to expect from these devices. I will update my next post with full detail specs and features.
The Tecno 2018 Global Spring Launch is scheduled to come off on April 5, 2018, in Lagos, Nigeria, and I will be there to bring you all the live updates.
